People operate… with beliefs and biases. To the extent you can eliminate both and replace them with data, you gain a clear advantage.

What Do We Do and Why?

BravoTwo4 was created in conjunction with Sport Testing Inc., to ensure all athletes, regardless of popularity, ability, race, gender, age, politics or socioeconomic background are treated and provided with an equal opportunity to grow as an individual and athlete in the sport(s) of their choice.

 

BravoTwo4 alongside Sports Science Inc. guarantees the most accurate testing results available. After being tested, athletes, coaches and organizations will have access to Sport Testing Inc.’s exclusive online database. Here you will be able to review test scores and compare them to other athletes within your own combine or at a global level to see where you rank. Additionally, athletes can use their individual test scores to make adjustments to their own training and skill development programs to help reach their highest potential. BravoTwo4 can also provide training suggestions and programs to increase athletic performance and results.

We provide standardized tests that measures sport specific speed, agility, and strength, this data can then be used for athlete evaluations, goal setting, research, or a variety of other purposes. We can also work with clients to create customizable tests to meet their purpose. Whether it’s identifying new talent, measuring performance or holding an athlete accountable; BravoTwo4 can provide data on how to improve athlete’s performance and building more cohesive, well-balanced teams.

 

Our event management team can work with your team or organization and assist in evaluations and provide accurate and unbiased data for the player selection process. We can take your event to the next level by bringing leaders in personal trainers, sport specific skills coaches, dieticians, sports psychologists /mental training, drug testers, and concussion experts.

Our mission is to maximize individual athletic potential, while building self-esteem, having fun and maintaining integrity throughout the process.

How Do We Do This?

Trained, impartial testers use the most advanced sports testing technology, standardized tests and analysis to evaluate individual athletes and provide them with the most accurate results available.

 

We suggest testing athletes before, during and at the end of their sports season. This process provides accountability, honesty and growth to the athlete. We do the testing. We provide the results. We make suggestions and referrals. It’s up to the athlete to make the effort, follow through and hold themselves accountable in their training regime. Testing won’t determine an athlete’s success, it will however provide them with facts, strengths and areas of improvement.

Guiding Principles:

Guiding Principles talk about how we work and relate to each other as coworkers, athletes, families, coaches and suppliers. These principles are at the core of everything we do; they drive our decision making, they help us with our planning, and they guide us in our daily interactions.

Sports are meant to fun and the testing should be as well. We will work with athletes to ensure that the test and testing environment is something they enjoy and want to do again. We carry an attitude that is genuine and fun while maintaining a level of professionalism.

 

2. Provide Accurate and Relevant Information
It is imperative that the data we provide data is as accurate as possible, our clients are depending on the results to make their decisions. Therefore, our equipment needs to use the latest technology and be maintained and in good working order at all times. Also, our processes for set up, take down and processing the data must be efficient and have built in checks and balances. It is also not enough to hand our clients numbers, the data must presented in a meaningful manner.

 

3. Great Service

We will interact with everyone professionally, objectively, with integrity, respect, dignity and honesty. We will not and are not able to alter results.

BravoTwo4 relies on consistent contributions from its athletes in order to invest in new technology and on-going training. It is our hope to keep costs affordable and accessible.
