The Combine360 takes the phrase 'well rounded athlete' to a higher level. C360 is dubbed "the ultimate measure of an athletes ability and potential." IMG's Performance Institute put on C360 and defines C360 as follows:
The C360 measurement identifies fundamental athletic ability, sports performance movement and elements of character considered important for performance. Your athletic ability is measured on general physical ability and integrative movement, while also testing your general vision, athletic mental state, nutrition level and awareness of your communication skills.
What will the athlete be tested on?
1. Foundational Athleticism measure nine athletic elements common across most sports including power, speed, strength, endurance and flexibility.
2. Sport Specific Movement features three physical tests that best determine an athlete's ability for that particular sport.
3. Integrative Movement measures how well your body's nervous system interacts with muscles and movement to create balance and posture.
4. Visual Ability measure the six main movements performed by the eyes - left, right, up, down, near and far.
5, 6 and 7. Questionnaires targeting diet quality, how your mind reacts during competition and communication with others helps determine mental, nutrition and communication levels.
Achieving a score of 360 is simply "close to impossible" the basis of C360 revolves around what characteristics the ultimate athlete would exhibit and measuring them against the score that the individual gets. By not focusing on the score you will understand the purpose of the C360 which is "KGB- Keep Getting Better" says Josh Lifrak simply put 'whatever you scored last time, do better next time.' C360 testing is going on Monday through Wednesday on Baseball fields and retesting is going to happen sometime after Wood Bat league to benchmark improvement.
