New London, NH (December 1, 2016) – Generation Next Athlete (GNA) today announced a partnership with Sport Testing Inc., the worldwide leader in sport testing technology, that will provide GNA’s athletic organizations across the Northeast with access to the state-of-the-art benchmark and progression testing solution. Based in Toronto, Sport Testing is an industry leader in technology based sports assessment, and offers advanced testing technology that will now be available to GNA’s league and team partnerships in more than 10 sports.
“Participating in sports starting at the youth level right through the collegiate level is about progression, as well as the enjoyment a player gets from competing,” said Matt Hagerty, Generation Next Athlete’s Managing Director. “Sport Testing’s technology provides a more accurate benchmark that clearly defines the necessary skill improvements that an athlete must make in order to advance to the next level each year. By implementing their technology into our benchmark program, individual athletes and their support teams can customize a goal oriented performance plan beyond just wins and losses.”
GNA’s assessments consist of a variety of dry-land and sport specific benchmarking and progression testing, and with the addition of Sport Testing’s technology, GNA will now have the capability to test an athlete’s speed, agility, transition, and reaction time more accurately. Using patented Sport Gate technology, each athlete is identified using RFID bands and their test results are uploaded electronically in real-time to our web application where coaches, parents, and athletes can view and compare the data.
“We are excited to welcome the Generation Next Athlete Team as one of our U.S. based partners,” said Jonathon Hollins, President of Sport Testing. “By implementing our assessment technology, athletes that test with Generation Next Athlete’s Benchmark program will gain the foundation to measure progress each season in order to achieve their goals.”
Sport Testing’s technology is being used from the youth sports level to professional sports teams across the globe. Athletes such as Connor McDavid, the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, have been tested by the company’s technology, and it has been used by teams and players in the NHL, CHL, NFL, NBA and NCAA.
Generation Next Athlete, LLC, based in New London, New Hampshire and Stowe, Vermont offers sport specific benchmarking and progression testing for athletes ranging from youth sports to professional levels. Led by a team of sport certified coaches and former collegiate and professional athletes, the company continues to gain recognition in the Northeast as the leader in skill and technology based athletic benchmarking.
