SportAnalytik METHODOLOGY

SportAnalytik is a program designed for children aged 5-16. By using nine simple tests to identify their physical skills we are able to recommend the right sport for them. During the half day event, children take part in a series of entertaining sports tests to reveal their somatotype, sport dispositions and strengths in things such as coordination, speed, power, endurance and tactical skills.

We make an individual assessment for each child then compare them with individual sports requirements. As a result, we identify the sporting talent of each child and provide them with a tailor-made report with suitable sports (including sports teams and clubs in the surrounding areas).

We cooperated on the SportAnalytik methodology with Dr. Tomas Peric, Ph.D. from the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport, Charles University Prague. He is an international expert in the field and we are constantly working on its optimization and improvement.

The disciplines were chosen to cover the main areas of physical skills – strength, endurance, speed, coordination, flexibility and their combination. All the tests have been designed to have high scores of reliability and validity.

It is not the aim of SportAnalytik to select professional athletes, but to bring joy to every child by discovering their sporting talent.

The aim of SportAnalytik is to get ALL children to fall in love with sports. We do this by assessing their physical skills in a really fun environment. We want them to associate being active with being happy, that is what is really important to us.

"I have pursued the area of sport talent selection for 25 years and SportAnalytik is a neat project for the general public, that leverages talent identification methodology derived using the scientific method"
