The objective of the study is to provide coaches with an evidence-based testing battery that can effectively assess their players physiological abilities. Most of the time, these tests must be carried out with little equipment and time. Scientific study has recommended the following testing battery: Anthropometry (height, body mass, and skin folds), 40-meter sprint, 5-0-5 agility, reactive agility, repeat high-intensity ability test, intermitted Yo-Yo test, counter-movement leap, 1RM power clean, 1RM bench throw, 1RM parallel back squat, 1RM bench press, and 1RM pull-up/chin-up. Following the completion of the testing battery, coaches can use the collected data for athletic profile, training adaption assessment, feedback to athletes and coaches, and athletic performance prediction. This article was created to provide practitioners with an appropriate testing battery that is backed by scientific research.
