WHAT CLOTHING SHALL I WEAR FOR AN MVP EVENT?
The majority of our events will be held in highly controlled indoor conditions and we recommend you bring a tracksuit to warm up and cool down in. Taking part in an event there are no rules to apply but we recommend trainers, shorts and T-shirt, athletes should feel free to wear whatever they are most comfortable in. We also recommend bringing a sweat towel.
NB: If an event is held outside or under different conditions you will be given at least 24 hours notice.
ON THE DAY OF AN EVENT WHAT SHOULD I EAT, DRINK AND WHEN?
Staying hydrated throughout sports competition is crucial to performing at your best, even a 2% drop in hydration can significantly affect sporting performance! Bring a 1-2L bottle of water to consume throughout your event to stay hydrated. We will provide a guide prior to your testing day that will explain in more detail how we suggest you prepare.
WILL THERE BE SOMEWHERE SAFE TO LEAVE MY BELONGINGS?
Unfortunately MVP can take no responsibility for individuals belongings and we recommend leaving all non-essential items at home. There may be locker facilities available at our events but they are provided by the venue so we have no control over them. We suggest you bring a small rucksack or bag with you that you can move from station to station as you work your way through our tests.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY RESULTS FOLLOWING AN EVENT?
After the event within 24 hours you will receive an email with a link to your dashboard, here you will be able to view the results.
WHAT TIME WILL I BEGIN THE TESTS AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
A comprehensive guide to the tests with all relevant information will be provided prior to the testing day with details of start times, length of tests and other vital information that will ensure that your testing day is well organised and more importantly fun! Our tests have been carefully selected and planned for all the tests to be completed within 2hrs.
HOW HAVE THE TESTS BEEN SELECTED? WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
We have consulted with some of the best health, fitness and performance specialists to design a suite of tests that create a comprehensive athletic profile that shows not only athletic ability but also overall health. The tests include strength, power, speed, agility, fitness and reactions as well as cognitive ability to ensure that a well-rounded view of you is achieved.
You'll be taking part in a series of seven physical tests alongside your peers, which have been designed by our sports scientists to assess your health, fitness and athleticism. This also includes a brief warm-up/warm down and some simple questions to ensure we can give you the best service possible.
Our tests have been carefully chosen so that anyone with any ability or fitness level can do them! Not only are they simple to perform, but you'll also have loads of fun doing them. All tests are supported by the latest scientific evidence and most importantly they require your best effort.
CAN A NOVICE/ ANYONE PERFORM YOUR TESTS?
Our range of tests are carefully selected to give an excellent overview of a participant's physical capabilities and a guide for all levels of athlete to aid improved performance. The tests are selected to be as inclusive as possible, however, if you are aware of a pre-existing medical condition then you should consult your Doctor. Please note all participants at MVP events are required to sign a waiver which is available to view at
WHAT WILL I GET FROM THE EVENT? WHO WILL BE SCOUTING ME?
Not only will you receive your athlete report, our coaches will also send you the best information on nutrition, training, recovery and sports performance. We also have great relationships with all national governing bodies of sport in the UK, professional teams across a wide range of sports and Universities/Schools in the USA for potential scholarship opportunities.
I AM DISABLED. CAN I STILL TAKE PART?
Yes, we will be guided by each individual athlete on which tests they are able to complete. In the near future MVP will have specific tests and events designed for disabled athletes.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM INJURED BEFORE OR DURING AN EVENT?
MVP staff are highly trained in first aid, resuscitation, injury management, health and safety. We recommend that you consult with your doctor if you have any prior or post concerns.
WHAT HAPPENS WITH MY RESULTS?
Most of your results you'll find out there and then on the spot! Our coaches will also further analyse the results in the days following your event and you'll receive your own athlete report. Within this report you'll not only see your results, but where you rank compared to your peers and all other athletes from across the UK that we have tested. Rankings are specific to your age and gender to ensure that they're fair. Your teachers and coaches will also receive your results, which with our guidance they'll use to improve your health, fitness and sporting performance. Teams, colleges and sporting organisations from all around the world can access your results as they search for the best athletic talent and next superstar!
