Evolve will be initiating a testing protocol for both physical and mental skills. Our objective is to gather
baseline data on each individual to track their progress during the in-season and off-season. This will
give the coaches and athletes a better idea of where they should focus their efforts in developing their
skills and to develop a sound strength and conditioning program that will have them peak for season,
tournaments and playoffs. The breakdown of physical and mental tests are as follows:

Physical Tests

1. Broad Jump (Lower body Horizontal Power)
2. Vertical Jump (Lower Body Vertical Power)
3. 10 Yard Dash (Sprinting Acceleration)
4. Body Composition (7 site skinfold body fat test)
5. Beep Test (Maximal Aerobic Test)
6. Pullup (Upper Body Pulling Strength)
7. Bench Press (Upper Body Pushing Strength)
8. Pro Agility (Lower Body Agility)

Mental Tests

Many companies have been promoting online neurocognitive tests as “baseline concussion
evaluations”, however when used as the only method of assessment, these tests have been shown to be
extremely inadequate, as they fall very short of testing all facets of concussion injuries. As part of a
complete evaluation, these tests have been shown to lend a valuable insight into neurocognitive
functioning. Our comprehensive baseline testing includes tests of all facets of concussion injuries,
including:

1. Medical History
2. Baseline symptom score and SCAT3
3. King Devick visual tracking test
4. Balance Error scoring system (BESS Test)
5. Clinical Reaction Time testing (Kutcher et al)
6. Motor Strength (Dominant and Non-dominant grip strength test)
7. Standard Assessment of Concussion (SAC – Orientation, Immediate Memory,
Concentration, and Delayed Memory Recall Tests)
8. ImPACT test

Physical Assessment and Discussion

Each player has the ability to sit down with any of our professionals (chiropractor, physiotherapist,
dietitian, acupuncturist, strength and conditioning coach, personal trainer, or yoga instructor) to discuss
any areas of concern they may have. These could include injuries they have had in the past or worry
they may have in the future, find exercises they can do to rehabilitate an existing injury, discuss dietary
options for losing, increasing or maintaining weight, develop specific strength programs to increase
performance, or address flexibility issues that can restrict movement such as in goalies.
