The NWCFA has arranged a referees fitness session for TUESDAY January 9th between 7-9pm
It would be great if as many as possible turned up to try the test, and maybe even use it as a fitness session. Referees looking to progress would need to take tests such as this as a mandatory requirement, so this would give you a good insight into what is expected.
6 x 40 meter sprints.
Each sprint to be completed in less than 7 seconds. On completion of each sprint the participant returns to the start line to commence the next sprint.
In the event of one sprint being over 7 seconds, a 7th and final sprint will be permitted. If 2 sprints out of the 7 sprints are not completed in under 7 seconds the test is failed.
32 x 75 meters runs – 32 x 25 meter walks.
If the test is run in laps it is a total of 8 laps of the track. Each lap will consist of 4 x 75 meter runs and 4 x 25 meter walks.
EACH LAP = Run 75m- Walk 25m – Run 75m-Walk 25m- Run 75m- Walk 25m- Run 75m- Walk 25m.
Alternatively the test can be held in the same sequence but back and forth on one stretch of the track.
Each 75 meter Run should be completed in under 17 seconds.
Each 25 meter walk should be completed in under 22 seconds.
A whistle will start all runs.
If you have any questions on the session please forward to merfyn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
