Functional Screening is a test of how an athlete
The functional Screening of athletes is an assessment tool that has been used by coaches to improve performance.
The aims of of the functional athletic screening are to highlight specific areas
where athletes can adjust parts of their training programme to gain improvement.
Most screening procedures struggle in that there is the limit as to where they go. Where
the screening procedure differs is that not only you highlighting the athlete’s movement deficiencies, we are also highlighting the reason for
such deficiencies and giving the solutions as to how these can be corrected.
The Functional Athletic Screening gives the athlete a score of how they move and therefore
provides an objective marker for comparison within a squad and also a marker for reassessment
in the future.
