Comprehensive Player Evaluations
Our evaluation method systematically identifies developmental strengths and weaknesses to pinpoint specific skills a player is lacking.
The JBTA Performance Evaluation Assessment Key P.E.A.K. >> assesses our player’s current ability and projects future proficiency to serve as a 360-degree player profile evaluation. All students are rated using a 45-point technical, tactical and mental toughness proficiency metrics.
THE PLAN >>
Next our Competitive Edge Plan C.E.P. >> as a roadmap for our players daily training. After reviewing the results from the Performance Evaluation Assessment Key, we are able to define proficiency and deficiencies allowing us to design a development plan. The plan gives the player 3-9 month goals.
There are 4 components in our daily training program (1) Private Instruction, (2) Repetition Drills, (3) Tactics/Competition, and (4) Athletic Development. Since every player has their own unique plan and skills to develop the players learn to increase their focus and time management skills.
REVIEW PROGRESS >>
We review our student’s overall progress every three months. Changes may be made based on what the coaching team and the player, quantify as adequate progress. As players develop a mastery in areas that were deficient we re-evaluate to begin the process again.

Performance Evaluation Assessment Key: P.E.A.K. is a technical, tactical, mental, and physical evaluation conducted by the JBTA Directors, and head coaches. As a rating based evaluation, all parts of a player’s game is given a score (separated by category – technique, etc.), with all scores compiled to calculate a performance rating.
Phase III Metrics Chart: The second component of our evaluation method is a metrics chart we call PHASE III. When a player is evaluated with P.E.A.K. and an academy performance rating (score) is generated we compare the player’s score, age, and competitive ratings to our chart.
Competitive Edge Plan: After generating a performance rating with our P.E.A.K., and assessing a player’s overall proficiency with our PHASE III chart we move into developing a training plan that pinpoints specific deficiencies, and proficiency in each development category. This systematic approach provides the player with a more efficient way to train and gives coaches clear objectives when planning the day to day drills.
