SASI fitness test
The SASI fitness test was held last night (Thurs 8/5/08)
I was suprised that this test had been penciled in 4 days after the state champs.
When I arrived to pick up my son I was not really suprised to see so many kids standing on the side lines injured and quite a few missing all together.
With the huge weekend the kids have just had, combined with club, SASI and state training I feel common sense should prevail and this testing should be either put off for two weeks or brought forward by two weeks. Some kids are also still fighting for a state spot, so the timing really does baffle me. The information gathering I understand, it is just the pounding these young bodies are recieving right now is IMO over the top.
Could this test be made at a better time? Is the timing of this test some how linked to national testing, therefore cancelling out any chance of finding a better time?
For the record, I am a supporter of the program in general, the timing of this test just seems to be off.
