Reduce injuries for athletes through performance tests

Novant Health powered by EXOS | Sparta Science

More athletes are starting their training early these days – sometimes even in elementary school. With each year of completion comes a greater risk of injury due to early specialization or training too hard on a particular skill.

With proper guidance and training, athletes can develop good habits and proper technique to avoid permanent damage to their joints and muscles. To support your athlete’s physical performance and protect your child’s safety and longevity in sports, consider a new sports evaluation called a Sparta Scan. This tool allows us to test your athlete in four areas of performance:

  • Upper body stability
  • Lower body balance
  • Lower body landing
  • Vertical jump

Members of Novant Health’s EXOS training team will review your athlete’s scan data to identify performance imbalances, weaknesses, and risks of sports specific injury.   Our team also will review the results with you and your athlete.

Visit one of our locations to meet our team in person, explore EXOS youth training and get your child’s complimentary Sparta scan.
