Conditioning Test for Tryout
It is expected that all players wanting to tryout for Westside Volleyball come into the season in great cardiovascular shape. We will be administering the MINI MOUNTAIN CONDITIONING TEST on the first day of tryouts. This test will be easy to accomplish if you spend six to eight weeks working at it during the summer.
Keep in mind that you rest more than you run any one sprint. If you can complete this test, then you will be ready for practices to begin! If you do not complete this test on the first day, we will run it at each practice until you successfully complete it.
Each Down is the length on one basketball court or 102' feet. Athletes will sprint to the end line of the court and physically touch it with on hand, then turn and run back within a specified times. Times are located below.
Times to Beat:
1 Down-and-Back: 12 Second
2 Down-and Backs: 27 Seconds
3 Down-and-Backs: 42 Seconds
Complete all 3 sets within time to complete the test.
