Proposed NISOA Fitness Test Changes for 2015

NISOA’s Director of Physical Fitness, Dr. Ken Kaylor is recommending modifications to the NISOA Physical Fitness Test. Key highlights of the modifications include:

  • Eliminating the point system. Officials must pass each event.
  • Eliminating the Pro 40 Box event and reduces the number of events to three.
  • Replacing the 30M shuttle (7 x 30 meters) with a 6 x 40 meter sprint repeat test similar to the one used by US Soccer.

The significant issues driving the proposed modifications are:

  • Safety. There are too many reports of officials falling during the Pro 40 box event.
  • Better alignment with US Soccer while still not burdening chapter administrators.
  • Simplify the test to pass/fail.
  • Use gender-based scoring.

The proposed fitness test is available for review/download and is on the agenda for action at the upcoming NISOA Convention/Annual General Meeting in Buffalo, New York on July 18, 2014. We are looking for feedback and comments from members to help shape our direction on this initiative. Please comment here.


Updated August 9, 2014 – Some significant changes to the proposed test were approved by the NISOA Membership at the Annual General Meeting in July 2014. Details are available on the NISOA web site.
