Super Sophs Sparq Scores and Rankings
How Do You Rate?
The SPARQ Lacrosse Rating is an index of athleticism calculated from the results on a battery of four field tests of athletic performance: vert ical jump, combined with body weight to calculate peak leg power; 20-yard dash, for linear acceleration; 30-yard shuttle, for agility; and rotat ional Power Bal l, for upper-body power.
Each Rating provides a window into the athlete’s capacities to meet the physical demands of ‘the fastest game on two feet’. The SPARQ Rating is an objective tool that should be used to inform an athlete’s goal setting for training and to measure the progress of his physical development.

Along with treadmill training, an individualized strength training program is developed for each athlete participating in the BlueStreak Sports Training Programs. We utilize our specifically designed treadmills and strength training equipment to optimize training techniques and provide the utmost in safety. The strength training builds a proper strength base for our performance enhancement programs.
This specialized treadmill provides a speed range up to 28 miles per hour and is capable of an incline up to 40 percent and decline to 10 percent. Raised and lowered hydraulically, these unique treadmills are designed to help athletes improve their speed while reducing force at the knee upon foot strike.
By elevating the grade, runners automatically learn to maintain forceful knee drive, proper pelvic position, high foot carry-through and full extension with every stride. Its subsurface was designed from interchangeable polymers to provide additional shock absorption. The treadmill also has a specially-designed spotting mechanism and handlebar for backward running.
The attributes of incline running, combined with the safety of increased shock absorption, provide the opportunity for repeated exercises under ideal conditions to improve stride length.
Hockey players from youth to professional levels are improving their speed, conditioning and skating mechanics on our patented skating treadmill.
Our exclusive hockey treadmill:
- Tilts from zero to plus 32 percent elevation
- Runs at speeds over 16 miles per hour
The hockey treadmill incorporates the patented SprintCords to optimally recruit skating-specific musculature. Our technology, research and professional staff are unequaled in improving a hockey player's abilities, analyzing a player's mechanics and correcting skating flaws. In addition, our hockey treadmill gives hockey players the ability to train in a performance-controlled environment with their own equipment, including skates!
The Plyo Press is a machine designed for the distinctive combination of leg strength training and plyometrics. No other device helps athletes achieve the unique benefit of building strength in ways that also benefit speed.
The greatest muscle activity happens in dynamic exercise such as jumping. The Plyo Press is much more effective than other lower-extremity-strengthening exercises such as squats and leg press devices like the hip sled.
This machine allows injured athletes the opportunity to start their rehabilitation and range of motion exercises before they are fully weight bearing.
The Pro Multi-Hip is a lower extremity exercise device for hip flexion or extension exercises and abduction and adduction exercises. It has the capacity to function as a very high-intensity, high-loading exercise machine for healthy athletes and as a very low-intensity, low-loading station for rehabilitation of both the hip girdle and lower extremity.
If your core muscle groups are not strong, you are not as fast, quick or mobile as you can be.
Hip extensors initiate maximal force production into the ground, and hip flexor strength has been reported in scientific literature to be the number one limiting factor to sprint speed development. The Pro Multi-Hip optimizes hip extensor and hip flexor strength development. In addition, as the abductors and adductors provide stability about the hip girdle and are keys to change of direction movements, the Pro Multi-Hip provides a dynamic avenue to optimize this development.
The Pro Implosion was developed at the request of former Cincinnati Bengal and all-pro nose tackle Tim Krumrie, who was looking for an isotonic machine that would replicate the demands placed on the trunk, shoulders and arms of football linemen. In meeting his demands, we created a machine that can efficiently condition all athletes.
The Pro Implosion builds the kind of upper body strength that gives athletes momentum, speed and economic movement simultaneously with the lower body. What's unique is the machine's ability to adjust and perform press exercises at 10-degree increments from the normal bench press position to a behind-the-head press. It is really 10 machines in one!
Our multi-layered Plyo Platform brings safety and state-of-the-art technique to plyometric jump exercises. With SprintCord technology built into its frame, the Plyo Platform is the only plyometric device that recruits the hip flexors, extensors, abductors and adductors during actual athletic movements. Flexors and extensors are strengthened for forward and reverse speed.
The Plyo Platform is ideal for sport-specific training. Repositioning the SprintCords and altering the patterns of movement within our four-vector formation can create 52 different load combinations to the lower extremity, making it possible to create precise regimens designed for specific results.
With the Plyo Platform, athletes develop keen body awareness, strength, agility and fast response rates. Contact-sport athletes can quickly outmaneuver competitors. Others can respond instantly to ball location, changing field conditions and competitor positions.
Our Cord Programs implement the use of various resistance cords for sport-specific training. The use of our cord technology enhances your workouts by providing resistance to upper and lower body extremities, building more powerful motions for sprinting, jumping, kicking, throwing, hitting, swinging or other sport-specific motions.
The SprintCords are patented, lower extremity, resistance-training cords implemented during running or hockey Program sessions and during floor work.
SprintCords enable proprioceptive recruitment of the specific neuromusculature associated with sprinting (on land or ice) and other related motions. Athletes can build powerful motions for sprinting, jumping, kicking or other sport-specific motion.
The PowerCord is a patented training aid that utilizes cords to provide upper extremity resistance to the arms, trunk and shoulders for better movements in sports such as hockey, basketball, volleyball and baseball/softball.
Along with a specialized-training protocol, the PowerCord helps build sport-specific power skills such as shooting, throwing and hitting. PowerCords are used in conjunction with the sport-specific training protocols for volleyball, baseball/softball, basketball and hockey. Athletes looking for improvement in any sport-specific movement utilizing the upper extremities will benefit from using the PowerCord.
To improve throwing velocity, we combine our training protocol with the patented ThrowingCord, manipulating the neuromuscular system and developing strength and mechanics specific to throwing a baseball, softball, football or even javelin. We have observed an average improvement in throwing velocity of 4 miles per hour with college players, and every player from youth through professionals have witnessed improvements in throwing velocity.
Optimizing the mechanics taught by coaches, the hitting Program, utilizing the HittingCord/Harness, recruits all muscles involved in swinging a bat, a golf club or a tennis racquet to develop greater swing speed and hip rotation. Players from the youth to professional levels are using this training technology to achieve excellent results for baseball, softball and golf.
Our patented KickingCord engages the specific recruitment of all muscles involved in kicking. The KickingCord also develops optimal kicking mechanics and concentric and eccentric strength, which contribute to a successful Program with documented results in NFL place-kickers and punters. Athletes in soccer and the martial arts benefit as well.
