The purpose of the 30m Sprint is to evaluate an athlete’s forward and backward acceleration and speed. In addition, the test is used to determine the athlete’s puck control competency in a linear direction.
The four 30m Sprint configurations are:
Forward Sprint and Forward Sprint with Puck
Backward Sprint and Backward Sprint with Puck
Athletes start behind the start gate and when ready sprint through the finish gate. For each configuration one attempt is given.
