    Red face The Beep Test

    Attended a meeting last night about the possibility of AR work more regularly. Next step is to pass a fitness test. We were told level 10 on the beep test. How difficult is this ? I had a quick look on line and thought.......oh dear............

    If you're fit, it's easy

    3 simple steps to improving your bleep test scores.

    1. PRACTICE
    2. MORE PRACTICE
    3. EVEN MORE PRATICE.

    Once all 3 steps have been completed you should hopefully of improved your scores. However check with your Society if it is the normal Bleep test they do or the YO-YO test.

    I remember one RFU administered beep test where, having got to Level 10, we all stopped. I was rather disappointed because, at that time, there would have been a lot more in the tank (a little less now, but still think Level 10 would be fine). I was also surprised that the RFU didn't want to see what level we COULD get to. I think Mr Mellick administered if I remember correctly.

    looked too much like hard work to me. There's no replacement for being able to read a game

    Is this for Terry's AR squad ?

    You need to be reasonably fit to do 10 on a bleep or Yo Yo equiv.
    Regular fitness training, decent body weight proportion, and no joints or muscle injuries.

    If you look online it will show you

    http://www.peworld.org/fitnesstestin...e_fit_test.htm

    Indicates that a beep level of 10 for a male 41-50 is classed as excellent

    We do Yo-Yo here now, and 18 is pretty damn good. The National Squad S+C coach is an ex Munster S+C guy and his general analysis for international players is that props should be getting 16.5, Second row and hookers around 18, Backs around 19 and back row around 20.5. The interesting thing is that GPS data apparently suggests that referees cover roughly the same ground as second rows, but at lower average intensity.

    We use Yo Yo for Society guys and any one expecting development past L9 is expected to reach 16.

    It is mandatory for the Southern Federation guys to pass at 16, and likewise Group. One Hants Group guy stopped at 19 as he had Ben on duty for18 hours (doctor) and the other Group guy was at 20+ when KML1 had had enough and wanted start the Society Meeting. The Fed L6 was also at 20+ when he stopped.

    The L5 Group referees I see on Saturdays look like athletes and have the body shape to go with it. They are highly mobile and quick around the pitch. That is an initial requirement at Panel level.

    Because this part-time AR project is a South West Regional initiative run by Terry Friend as SWG Regional Manager (volunteer) to follow on from a pilot run last season by South East Group. His ARs will operate at L5 hence have to fit enough to cope.

    See http://drrs.pitchero.com/news/southw...ruitment-7799/ for how Devon are doing it. Each Society/Federation has nominated candidates and some are taking it further to encourage more specialist trained ARs at Society level.
