Contact(s): Andy McGlashen Media Communications office: (517) 355-2281

Michigan State University’s Spartan Nutrition and Performance Program invites young athletes to put themselves to the same tests the NFL, college coaches and premier youth teams use to identify and select recruits.

The inaugural SNAPP Athlete Testing Combine includes an electronically timed 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, vertical jump, long jump, push up and curl up tests.

Athletes will receive a customized report and SNAPP Athlete Index score that can be used for evaluating baseline performance, uncovering physical strengths and weaknesses, setting goals and designing training programs. There also will be prizes for the top male and female SNAPP Athlete Index scores.

The testing days are Dec. 15 from noon to 4 p.m. and Dec. 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. in IM Sports Circle on the MSU campus in East Lansing. The event is open to young athletes aged 10 to 18. The cost is $50. Appointments are available for four athletes every 15 minutes.

Registration is required. To register or for more information, visit http://snapp.msu.edu or call (517) 884-6133.
