More on Checklists: Tuck Jumps


I posted earlier on how I liked checklists and noticed that a good way to appraise movement was included in the research study on real time assessment of at risk ACL athletes. My goal for early september is to complete my own checklists for block departure, acceleration, transition, max velocity, and hurdle mechanics. Next year will likely refining the sub qualities such as the jumps, throws, and lifts, but you can’t do it all. I think checklists need to be more than pass or fail, and should be more quantified. How one scores this rapidly is the hard part since groups of athletes can’t be scored quickly if one is measuring everything. The key is to find what variables are the highest of impact and don’t toss away what may be valuable later.
