WHAT IS USR?
Universal Speed Rating (USR) is a data tracking platform that uses a proprietary algorithm to rate athletes speed. USR is used to evaluate, report, and measure athletes. Speed Labs are built to provide metric testing, athlete profiles, and individual training options for athletes who are looking to develop more speed performance!

Our Speed Assessment will allow our staff to establish baseline metrics in Explosiveness, Acceleration, and Absolute Speed. Based upon these metrics, we will be able to specifically identify a training program specific to your needs to address any mechanical or physical deficiencies. Get your speed assessment today and start on a path to increasing your speed potential!
Explosiveness is often defined as an athletes first 3 steps. By assessing our initial phase of sprinting, athletes can see their power metrics to determine what specific drills their can use to address initial set-up body posture, ground contact time (GCT), and lower body mechanics.
After our initial 3 drive steps, athletes move through an acceleration period. Depending upon an athletes' power, athletes will begin to "turn-over" and continue increasing their velocity while decreasing GCT. By assessing our 10-20 yard dash times, we can assess where an athlete specifically needs to increase their acceleration mechanics.
Absolute speed is our highest velocity phase. While many athletes never reach their maximum velocity in sport, science has proven that increasing an athletes maximum velocity directly correlates with increasing their explosiveness and acceleration. By assessing flying 20 yard and 30 yard times, athletes can begin to see their maximum output as well as determine their top speed(mph)!
During the Speed Assessment, athletes will perform a variety of drills specific to our speed assessment and get tested on:
10 yard Dash
20 yard Dash and/or Flying 1o
*Video proof will also be taken to provide verified and accurate times for the athlete and USR*
Athletes will receive a personal USR Speed Profile through Capstone Performance Training. This profile will allow athletes to track and input their metrics as well as receive comparative analysis locally, regionally, and nationally across all sports!
6-Week Training Program
Based upon the athlete specific metrics and speed profile, you will receive a 6-Week Training Program to be implemented either in the facility or at-home. This allows for you to take your training to the next level and increase your speed potential and track your progress over time!
