    Published on November 22, 2019

    ROCKLAND, MA : HardKore Athletic Performance Testing recently brought the nationally recognized Zybek Sports, the Official Timing System of the NFL and the USA Olympic Teams, to the Eastern MA Hawks Lacrosse Program and Academy, testing the athleticism of more than 160 young players in an afternoon at their testing and training facility at 22 Reservoir Drive, Suite 4 in Rockland, MA.

    Students in grades 3 through 11 completed the Standardized Athletic Test (SAT) to measure speed and performance and pinpoint areas for improvement to better target their training. The SAT is a combination of athletic performance evaluations comprised of the 40 yard dash, the 5-10-5, L Drill, Broad Jump, Vertical Jump PLUS Body Measurements of Reach, Wing Span, Hand Size, Height and Weight. The Power Pushup is also measured on the Force Plate.

    HardKore is using the most accurate laser timing system in the world and through Zybek’s National Database of well over 100,000 can compare athletes by individual sports, age, positions and High School, College and Professional levels. The results can be used for personal benchmarking, team comparison, recruiting, and goal setting.

    “It is exciting to witness the best and most accurate laser timing system in the world and we were pleased to see how the athletes responded to the SAT and their individual results,” said Kevin Orcutt, President and CEO of HardKore Testing. “As Zybek continues to create cutting edge technology for testing athletes we will continue to invest in the equipment and make it available across New England.”
