Soccer Skills PRO system’ tests are a very important element of player’s evaluation. Based on them, player’s potential, his strengths and elements which require further training are being evaluated. Tests are divided into two categories: special agility tests and general physical fitness ones.





Ball dribbling

This test challenges the player to dribble the ball as fast as he can. The distance for dribbling the ball is 20 metres. The technique is optional. This test determines the skill to control the ball by the player who runs at full speed.

Turning with the ball

In this test the player needs to make 6 turnings with the ball while dribbling as fast as he can. This test is done on a distance of 5 metres. It’s a complex test evaluating agility and manoeuvrability of the players, the level of their coordination as well as control of the ball in a small area in sudden and rapid changes of direction of the run. This entails all movement activities which reflect everything that is happening on the football pitch during the match.


Player’s task is to make as many flick ups as possible during 30 seconds. The player needs to juggle alternately from right to left leg. It is a very important test which shows how player controls the ball. Additionally, this test evaluates the level of motor coordination skills such as ability to kinaesthetic movements differentiation and spatial orientation ability in a measurable manner.

Passing the balls

Player’s task is to score 4 goals in the shortest time possible. Two passes need to be done with right leg and another two with a left one. In the evaluation of the test, accuracy and time are being considered. Player himself decides about the order of the passes, how many contacts with the ball he will do before he makes the pass which forces him to make decisions fast as if he was playing a match.


Standing long jump

Standing long jump. It’s a test which determines the strength of the lower limbs of the examined player. It is one of general physical fitness tests which results strongly correlate with the results achieved in football. It means that usually players, who accomplish very good outcomes from the test, are also highly predisposed to play football.

Agility run

Agility run. It’s a test determining not only speed but also coordination and explosive strength of the players. After running in a straight line, player needs to show a high level of movement coordination when changing the direction of the run as well as high level of explosive strength which means he needs to generate the power big enough to accelerate on the next segment.

5 metre sprint

The test of 5 metre sprint determines the level of acceleration of the player which is a very significant factor in football. Very often, a player who is very fast on a short distance has an advantage over the others as he’s making a rapid, sudden start to a ball or he simply overtakes the defender. It’s one of the most popular but at the same time reliable tests used in the whole world, starting from children’s football to senior one. This enables to gather information on already achieved level of acceleration as well as explosive strength of the players. The test starts with a half meter run.

20 metre sprint

Main aim of the 20 metre sprint test is to determine acceleration of the players as well as gathering thorough information on mobility and speed of the examined players. It also determines the ability to maintain the speed on a longer distance, unlike it was in the previous trial. Similarly to above described test, players start with a half meter run, so that to exclude the time reaction from the test and focus more on locomotive speed of the players.
