ADDITIONAL API INFO
• The EPIC Athletic Performance Index (API) is the brainchild of Boyd Epley, Med, CSCS, former Athletic Director of Strength and Conditioning at the University of Nebraska. “Coaches are basically looking for talent. The index helps us identify that talent. It also provides a consistent way of measuring where athletes are in their development.”
• The EPIC API has been in use since 1968, giving it more than 50 years of proven athletic measurement and benchmarking.
• Three tests are administered in the index: the standing vertical jump, the pro-agility run, and the 10-yard dash.
• Collegiate athletic programs throughout the country have embraced the EPIC API as the gold standard of athletic performance measurement.
The Sports Psychology Index (SPI) measures five characteristics that are correlated to athletic success at collegiate and professional levels of competition. These “5Cs” surface key insights for athletes and college coaches to help determine fit and plan transition into an athletic program.
Your activation fee includes one SPI assessment which will be accessed via a link in your Player Profile and taken online.
ADDITIONAL SPI INFO
• Dr. Jesse Llobet; PhD. of Psymetrics, Inc. developed and validated the SPI over a ten-year period with tens of thousands of athletes
• The SPI is a dynamic sports psychology measurement which can change over time
• The SPI is a directional tool, intended to highlight areas of strength and suggest areas for development
• The SPI report includes a thorough interpretation of results and a practical guide to help you improve your scores
