Robert DrummondGIVE YOUR ATHLETE AN EDGE

Developed by former professional football player Robert Drummond, RAPS Rating (Redefining Athletic Performance System) is a unique athletic assessment and evaluation tool that will help your high school athlete gain an advantage over their competition and become a top competitor in their field.
 
Using a patent-pending algorithm, RAPS Rating is the first test of its kind to accurately measure both male and female athleticism based on five variables: change of direction, agility, power, strength and speed. Your RAPS Rating percentile (on a scale of 100%) tells you how you rank against other athletes who play your position and sport on both a regional and national level. Think of it as your overall athletic grade.
 
More importantly, RAPS Rating is as an evaluation tool for athletic trainers, coaches and even athletes themselves looking to improve upon their off-season strength and conditioning programs. Your RAPS Hurricane Scores (on a scale of 1 to 5) reveal your strengths and weakness on each of five variables tested. This infomation makes is possible for the development of a unique, personalized training program tailored to your athlete's specific needs.

An official five test RAPS Rating Assessment is administered by a certified RAPS provider with an electronic timing system. Upon request, your score report can be forwarded to colleges and universities. Any coach or parent can also give the test themselves to get an unofficial RAPS percentile ranking so athletes can compare themselves against other athletes across the country.  Unofficial RAPS test are not submitted to colleges or universities because only certified RAPS providers can validate the scoring of a RAPS ranking. Youth ages 8-12 can also be tested but only as an overall athlete and not for any specific sport.   

WHY USE RAPS RATING?

You can't improve what you don't know and you can't get better if you don't fully understand what it is you need to work on. 

RAPS Rating is unique in that it provides you with two pieces of key information: your overall atheticism AND your sterength and weaknesses as an athlete compared to other athletes who play your specific position and sport. For coaches, trainers and parents, obtaining a RAPS Rating is an exciting way to see where your athletes rank. More importantly, discovering your athlete's strengths and weaknesses allows you to make adjustments or develop a new training program to benefit both the team and the individual players.
