The Overhead Squat test

Positioning of the coach

It is important that the coach takes up a position to observe the execution of the squat in full. The coach should stand about two to three metres away from the player. Two repetitions may be viewed from the front and two from the side. In some cases, it may also be necessary to observe additional repetitions from the back and from both sides.
