All may be quiet on the basketball front right now, but an interesting video has popped on YouTube showing highlights of the Wolpack’s men’s hoops team going through B.A.M. Testing – or basic athletic measurement. Â It’s a basic measurement of different fundamental athletic skills, and identifies areas that a particular athlete may need to work on and enhance in order to ultimately improve their game. Â According to the video, State is currently the only university utilizing this particular system, and it looks impressive.
BAM Testing has developed a proprietary evaluation system that converts your test results into a standardized score. The scoring system has been developed over 25 years and allows you to compare and categorize yourself with a peer and elite population. In other words you will know exactly how you rate and compare against athletes. This is what makes it so meaningful. Â The scoring is based on your best trial result for each test. Using BAM Testing’s extensive results database, each protocol result is assigned a value with the cumulative total equaling a BAM Score . The BAM Scoreâ„¢ not only provides you the ability to categorize and track your progress, it opens the door to goal setting and future success.
