The coaching staff that make up the multidisciplinary team of a sports club or governing body often require a single, holistic indication of an athlete´s athleticism. Currently there is no consensus on how this is best achieved and thus the Total Score of Athleticism (TSA) and its associated ‘RAG’ rating may provide one such strategy. The TSA is derived from the sum of z-scores from a fitness testing battery and is further divided into red, amber, green (RAG) zones based on the top (green) and bottom (red) third of all scores.
