General
In the Xdrona’s Physical Literacy Assessment for Youth, we test children for skills such as Locomotor, object control, running, balance etc. Different sports require these skills in different combinations. The observations of each test are fed into the system and our proprietary algorithm gives you the list of sports your child can excel at
These Assessments have been in use for many decades in the western world. For example, in Europe these are referred as Eurofit Fitness Test Battery or in Canada these are called Playfun Physical Literacy Tests. In India as a country, we are just starting to use these Physical Literacy Assessments at a wider level. At Xdrona we have customised these assessments specifically for our Indian children. We have different set of Assessment test for different age groups
One of the reasons a child does not engage in sports activity is that he/she does not get to play a sport the child is good at. Many times they end up playing a wrong sport and find themselves languishing at the bottom of the heap at the skill level while they watch their friends progressing well. This triggers a feeling of inferiority and it further leads to the withdrawal of the child from the particular sport and in many cases, all types of physical activity. So, if we can identify a right sport for the child then we can avoid this scenario to great extent
While these Assessments test an individual child for his/her fitness & skill, what these tests also do is to give you a result of your child’s performance with respect to the other children in the same age-group and as per the standards mentioned by Indian Paediatric Association. This comparison helps us identify any growth-related issues in your child

As for the Musculoskeletal Fitness Assessments we were helped by Dr Sandeep Kumar. He had been using these tests for the Athlete’s assessment he had been working with. Generally, these are used to identify any dysfunction in an athlete's body which can lead to any injury in the future. For youth and the general population good Musculoskeletal fitness has been attributed to things like personal independence and better quality of life, lower risk of cardiovascular disease or fracture, and injuries due to falls. It has also been linked to improved cognitive and functional ability. So, with the help of Dr Sandeep we were able to customise these tests for adolescents and youth

Young Athletes
The requirement for these tests came up from the need to preserve the fitness of an athlete since an athlete is an expensive Investment. Injuries to the athletes not only cause damage to them but they also cause huge financial losses to the teams and clubs. So, the idea was to come up with tests that can assess the cause of these injuries or to prevent new injuries.. The injuries which could be due to bad diet or bad nutrition or lack of rest or maybe due to the make-up of the athlete’s body. These factors make them prone to a particular type of injury. So, these tests are critical for the athletes who want to pursue sport at the highest level
