The players of the Elite 24 will be put through a competition involving C360 tests at the Hangar Athletic Xchange outside Los Angeles this Thursday from 1 – 2:30 p.m. These tests are featured in the Under Armour Basketball Combines that will be launching in September in NY, L.A., and the home of C360, IMG Academies, in Bradenton, FL.
The workout will be led by Denver Nuggets strength and conditioning coach and Under Armour Performance Training Council, Steve Hess, with assistance from trainers at IMG Academies’ Performance Institute.
Some of the tests will be a true first for these great athletes, as many have never had the opportunity to go through Integrative Athleticism and Sport Vision Tests. These C360 unique tests work to paint a complete picture of an athlete for potential coaches. The tests will depict each athlete’s overall balance of strength, body control and likelihood of injury as well as their ability to see plays develop, identify holes in the defense or open players across the floor.
Hess is known for his high energy and will put the athletes through some of the same tests featured in the NBA Combine, including Vertical Jump, Lane Agility, Seated Medball Chest Tosses during this showcase of raw athletic talent.
The competition will serve as a preamble to scrimmages and the Elite 24 game at Venice Beach this Saturday.
