Q: How quickly can we schedule a testing for my team or organization?
A; Depending on AST's schedule and your location, AST can usually do a testing within 2 weeks, sometimes sooner, but most are scheduled out months in advance. We suggest getting your date scheduled and locked in, as soon as possible, as dates fill up quickly.
Q: How often should I get tested?
A: AST recommends getting tested at least every 6 months from the last test date.
We have teams, clubs, schools and organizations that test every 3 months and others that test once a year, it is really up to each individual team, club, school or organization to decide how often they would like to be tested. AST does offer packages and discounts to teams, clubs, schools and organizations who book mutliple testing dates in advance within a year.
Q: Is the testing a competitive environment?
A: AST is very flexible and lets each individual team, club, school or organization to decide how they would like the testing to be done and what environment works best for them. The testing can be setup to be competitive, with the atheltes seeing their results in real time as the test is being done or results can be non-visual, with only the AST testing team and coaches seeing the results in real time and not the athletes. AST can also make the testing fun with a non-competitive environment without any athletes being able to see the results in real time. Some of our teams have mentioned what a great team bonding experience AST Testing was for them. So it is really up to each team, club, school or organization to decide what they feel is best for them.
