Athletic Performance Testing
Iron Courts has developed a comprehensive performance testing program for athletes of all ages. We bring professional testing to the amateur athlete. Using the latest technology, our testing provides our athletes with the ability to see how they compare to their competition and where they can focus their training to improve their limitations.
Our testing evaluates the Five Pillars of Athletic Training. Our testing evaluates these areas to make sure there are no deficits or areas prone to injury. We also have concussion testing and return to sport testing. These series of tests can assess an athlete’s ability to return to sport following injury or head concussion.
Our testing also provides all athletes and parents with the ability to see how they compare to their age level and competition. This is the best way to learn how to focus your training and define opportunities for physical development.
Baseline and Repetitive Testing
Testing is a great way to track your progress. We offer testing multiple times a week. It takes 30 minutes to perform the test and to review your results with a certified personal trainer. We cover areas in core, plyometrics/vertical, speed/agility, strength/power, and endurance. We also are able to formulate training programs to improve areas and to compare with similar athletes. There are also savings for biannual and quarterly testing. Having a baseline test allows an athlete to concentrate their future training on areas of weakness and areas prone to injury. In addition, an athlete sees their areas of strength that could set them apart from other athletes and to stand out in the future. Repetitive testing can help encourage an athlete as they can see their progress. Young athletes grow and change so rapidly that repetitive testing keeps all the information up to date.

Sports Performance Training
Our Sports Performance Training Program utilizes the Five Pillars of Athletic Training. We focus on building dynamic stability and a strong core to improve overall power and strength. Using 3D resistance training, we are able to increase strength in movements used specifically in basketball and athletes. We focus on speed and agility training and endurance training. We utilize fundamental movement skills and sport specific skills to develop athleticism, increase speed, strength, and reduce injuries and increase stamina.
Elite Performance Training
Our Elite Performance Training Class gives athletes of all ages entry access to an elite level sports performance training program. We start by teaching the fundamentals. We focus on fundamental movement skills and sports specific skills that will increase your vertical, strength and explosiveness. We have specific training techniques to help reduce an athlete’s risk of injury. Our classes are done in small group environments which allows for positive competition but also individual coaching to make sure all sessions are productive and injury free.
Speed and Agility
Vertical Jump / Plyometrics
The only way to measure strength and power for every movement. Using 3D resistance technology, Proteus can train power and acceleration. It is safer, more efficient, and more effective than traditional resistance training tools. An entirely new standard for personalized fitness and physical rehabilitation. The Proteus System is able to train an athlete in strength, power, and acceleration. It is safer, faster, and more effective than traditional resistance training tools.
It provides two times the neuromuscular stimulation compared to cables and free weights. It strengthens the entire movement pattern for maximum efficiency. It performs two exercises in the time of one with concentric resistance in both directions during every repetition.
The heightened engagement of muscles prompts users to produce force from the ground up and naturally adjust to discover their optimal movement patterns. It also adapts itself to your movements. When you stop, it stops. The unique resistance system has a low impact on joints and tissues.
Currently, most players spend more time in competitive tournaments and games than they do with training. While competitive games and tournaments have value, if it becomes the main source of developmental growth, it becomes limited, especially for younger players.
Basketball for Beginners
The Rookie Academy is intended for 2nd and 3rd graders (typically 7-9 years of age) or athletes 7+ that are just starting their basketball career. The Rookie Academy class uses a youth 27.5” basketball.
The Intermediate Academy is for 4th and 5th graders (typically 10-12 years of age) or athletes that have a few years of experience. The Intermediate Academy class uses a 28.5” basketball.
