HPMS is an individual, one-on-one evaluation focusing on three key areas:

The tests are based on established movement screen protocols commonly used in sports medicine and are administered by a group of physicians, physical therapists and certified athletic trainers. Each participating athlete will receive a detailed report flagging areas of concern and a thorough explanation of exercises to strengthen and improve flagged areas.

  1. I actually participated in the STARS combine in 2014 at Adult Nationals. We did the kids' version and I was so sore the next day!
