HOW WE DO IT
Athletes Seeking Universities
ONLY HIGHLIGHT-HER empowers both athletes and universities to connect on the athletic and academic attributes that matter most to simplify and accelerate the athlete-coach connection.
University Coaches Seeking Athletes
University coaches are now empowered to create custom searches for athletes based on the academic, athletic, and sports psychology attributes that matter most to them.
Athletic Standard Index (ASI)
The Athletic Standard Index (ASI) cuts through the confusion to clearly and objectively measure an individual’s athleticism.
An ASI score is included with your elite and certified HIGHLIGHT-HER profiles.
An ASI score is derived from an athlete’s biometric data and physical testing results. Athletes and coaches can confidently assess performance and potential against different collegiate levels of play.
An ASI score is a real-time measurement and it can change over time. There are things you can do to prepare mentally and physically that will help you improve your score. It is not uncommon for ASI scores to improve dramatically as players mature.
You can take your ASI test at a HIGHLIGHT-U event or an open testing date at a Certified HIGHLIGHT-U Facility.
Mental Toughness Index (MTI)
The Mental Toughness Index (MTI) measures five critical behavioral characteristics that have been correlated with athletic success at high school, collegiate, and professional levels of competition.
The degree to which the athlete pushes him/herself to the absolute limit, is mentally tough, prepares for competition, has the internal drive to be the best, exhibits a winning attitude and is willing to risk it all to win it all.
The degree to which the athlete can be counted on to attend practices and meetings as scheduled. The degree to which the athlete thinks things through, is organized, responsible and achievement driven.
The degree to which the athlete is a team player, is willing to sacrifice self for the good of the team, trusts those around him/her and does not engage in conflict with team members or coaching staff.
The degree to which the athlete feels he/she is in control during tough competitions is self-confident and is not afraid of high-pressure situations.
The degree to which the athlete values winning. The degree to which the athlete is not easily satisfied and feels that winning or being the best means everything.
The MTI is validated through our exclusive partnership with Psymetrics, Inc.
