The Quantified Athletic Testing Combines or ACTs are sport evaluations conducted by Prospects by Sports Illustrated to assess the athletic performance of your athlete. The ACTs, like their academic counterparts, are standardized athletic testing using laser-timing (same as the NFL Combine), velocity-based training, and video analysis to provide cutting-edge sports performance insights you can’t get anywhere else. In addition, every athlete will be ranked at national, state, and local levels. These scores can be shared with coaches and scouts as proof of top-tier athletic performance. This Combine uses the latest Sport Science in an indoor facility to provide bleeding-edge competitive insights to help athletes reach their next level of performance.

The Combine
Our team of Sport Scientists has taken the traditional NFL combine and added testing devices to provide deeper levels of insight for parents and coaches. We follow all the traditional Combine tests which we measure at the highest level of accuracy. Those tests have all been validated by the scientific community for athletic performance in football. What separates our combine from others is the additional metrics that we provide. For example, we provide a Collision Index Score to your athlete that determines their tackling power. Not only are these metrics exclusive to our events, but we are also actively working with hardware manufacturers to improve the testing equipment so that we can deliver more accurate insights.

Metrics are meaningless without comparison. Here are the testing procedures that we’ve implemented to ensure that tests are comparable across testing sites:

  1. Testing Devices: nearly every test in the combine is measured directly by a device with no human interference. Our speed tests all use laser timing (the same used as the NFL). Our bench press testing measures the bar path of every rep to ensure that the athlete reaches full extension every time. Our vertical jump uses laser-based distance measurement to accurately record jump height. Athletes log in with RFID bands at the speed events to validate their identities. 
  2. Testing Staff: Our combines are only staffed by CSCS-certified strength and conditioning coaches. The CSCS certification, issued by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, is required by Universities to run athletic performance departments. All these coaches are instructed to provide guidance on techniques to enhance athletic combine performance. These aren’t personal trainers, they’re highly qualified professionals who have spent years developing athletes. 
  3. Testing Locations: Every Combine test location has to meet uniform criteria to be considered. Much like a standardized academic test, every location is vetted by the Prospects by Sports Illustrated staff to ensure that no one location confers additional advantages to their athletes. 
  4. Video Capture: Every test is captured on video and backed up to our cloud storage. We keep records of every test across every testing site to ensure best practice is followed. If there ever are any disputes regarding the legitimacy of a test, our team will pull the video footage. 
  5. National Sports ID: Since the Quantified-ACTs are managed by Prospects by Sports Illustrated, all participants are required to register their identities with National Sports ID. This is a $10 charge and provides an Athlete ID that the athlete can use across various Prospects by Sports Illustrated events. That ID will be requested when the athlete checks-in for the combine. The purpose of this ID system is to ensure that every athlete is representing themselves at the Combines. That verification allows us to maintain the integrity of the Combines as a Scouting resource. 



The Location
D1 Deerfield Beach is a state-of-the-art (21,000 sq. ft), non-traditional fitness & performance facility that includes top-of-the-line strength & performance equipment, expansive turf, a half basketball court, a specialized lacrosse training area, and physical therapy. Their expert coaches lead their proven workout programs in a high-energy and inspirational setting that produces results for every athlete, regardless of age or fitness level.


What You Receive
When your athlete arrives at the facility, they will check-in at the front desk where they will receive their Combine number and RFID band. Once they’ve checked in, they are free to warm-up and prepare for their tests. As stated above, every test is managed by a CSCS-certified coach. At the conclusion of the tests, the athlete will be provided a comprehensive report that breaks down their scores and includes the Sport Science metrics exclusive to Prospects by Sports Illustrated. Additionally, footage of the tests will be made available for parents and athletes to download. There is also the option to have a professional video review done by a Strength and Conditioning Specialist that will breakdown the biomechanics and speed of the athlete. 


The athlete will also have their test scores added to their Prospects by Sports Illustrated profile. That profile will contain footage and stats from Prospects by Sports Illustrated which will serve as a recruiting profile for interested colleges. Additionally, that athlete will be ranked against their peers at the national, state, and local levels.

The Tests
Validated science is slower than sport science. For this reason, the most validated tests are also the most widely-adopted (for good reason). What separates the value of these tests from others is that our uniform testing conditions allow us to accurately compare data from athletes across the country. Additionally, the devices and testing protocols allow us to provide advanced metrics such as the Collision Index or Acceleration Profile. The tests are listed below:
  • 40-Yard Dash: Laser-timed for accuracy
  • 5-10-5 Pro Agility: Laser-timed for accuracy
  • L-Drill: Laser-timed for accuracy
  • Vertical Jump: Laser-measured for accuracy
  • Broad Jump: Measured manually with video recording
  • Bench Press (Or Med Ball Toss depending on Age): Measured with an accelerometer

PSI RANKINGS

With limited events in 2020 the PSI rankings release has been delayed to mid 2021. PSI will be releasing a 2021 Watch list in the next few weeks. Stay tuned! 


Rankings will be based on a number of factors, the first being strength of schedule on the local, regional and national level. PSI will consider its own pre and post season events as well as other reputable sanctioned and non-sanctioned events.

Additional data points will include regular season standings, playoff status and championship victories in specific conferences and leagues. Standings will be verified by league and conference commissioners and our National Rankings Committee.

PSI will also utilize its own scouts and reporting entities as part of our "Grass Roots, Ground Level" initiative to ensure accuracy and comprehensive results.
