The "Jones Quadrathlon" Test is a great tool, which tests specific strengths that correlate to the throwing events of track and field. These tests place a value, between 1-100 (shown below), on athletic achievements in the following four tests:

  1. Standing Long Jump
  2. Standing 3 Jumps
  3. 30-meter sprint
  4. Overhead Shot Put Throw
