R.A.P.S. - Reaction, Agility, Power and Strength Rating Specialist

As a certified Reaction, Agility, Power and Strength Rating Specialist (RAPS),
I provide athletes with a systematic athletic assessment and collegiate recruitment evaluation in a professional environment in order to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each athlete to help prevent injury and improve athletic performance.

 

RAPS testing assesses the athlete's ability to:

  • Coordinate power and explosiveness

  • Change of direction

  • Speed

  • Endurance

  • Core Strength

  • Agility

 

Eight tests for each individual sport that assesses the athleticism of an individual specific to the demands of that sport.

 

A RAPS score is generated from the results of the tests:

8-12 year olds are given a percentile ranking based on their age group, while 13-18
year olds are given a percentile ranking which compares them to high school and collegiate athletes from across the country.

 

A RAPS score:

  • Demonstrates their strengths and weaknesses

  • Lets the athlete know how much work they need to do to measure up against
    the nation's best

  • The athlete will have a better idea of how hard they must work to get up to the
    next level, and leverage themselves for a college scholarship
