Revised Chapter Fitness Testing Policy
In response to recent issues regarding the administration of the NISOA Chapter Fitness Test, the chapter executive board approved the following revisions to the chapter fitness policy:
NY Metro ISOA administers two NISOA fitness tests annually. The initial fitness test is usually administered in early June and the final fitness test is administered in July. NY Metro ISOA members in an active status are strongly encouraged to participate in one of the scheduled chapter fitness tests. New candidates and probationary members are required to participate in a scheduled NY Metro ISOA fitness test.
Within one week after the final NY Metro ISOA fitness test and in no case later than July 20, the NY Metro ISOA Executive Board will notify area assignors with a list of chapter members who have not taken a scheduled NY Metro ISOA fitness test or who have failed to achieve the minimum standard for the fitness test.
National Referees and National Referee Applicants must have their fitness test data certified as required by the NISOA National Referee Program Administrators.
Members who cannot attend a scheduled NY Metro ISOA fitness test must notify the NY Metro ISOA Executive Board, in writing, before the final NY Metro ISOA fitness test in July using this online form. All notifications must include information detailing when and where (identify the NISOA chapter administering the test) the member intends to take the NISOA fitness test. NY Metro ISOA members who take the NISOA fitness test with another chapter are responsible to obtain their test results from that chapter. A NISOA clinician, NISOA assessor or the chapter president, must certify all test results from other chapters.
Members who fail to achieve the minimum standard at a scheduled NY Metro ISOA fitness test may not retake the test with another NISOA chapter within six months. The NY Metro ISOA Executive Board will not accept fitness test data from other NISOA chapters for NY Metro ISOA members who failed to achieve the minimum standard at a scheduled NY Metro ISOA fitness test.
The full chapter fitness policy, as well as all other chapter policies, is published on the chapter’s policies and procedures web page.
