Red-Blue Sprint

Dashr | Blue - Operating the

Evaluation of linear speed, acceleration, and power on ice. Athlete skates from the Red Line to the opposing Blue Line. Simple drill to measure break away speed. You can also add a puck!

Step-by-step instructions

This drill uses 2 Dashr|Blue Timing gates. You likely already have your devices registered, if not - please check out the Flying Drill as it is the same process.

Setting up the drill

  • You will use a 2-point start for this drill, so we recomment using the Flying dril or the Red-Blue Sprint under Sport Collections > Hockey > Red-Blue Sprint. You can use either drill for this test - but they will be saved differently on the Dashboard. As either a fly or a Red-Blue Sprint.

  • To set-up this drill you will have a starting gate on regular tripods extended to about waist height on the Red Line.

  • Set-up the finish laser at waist height at the opposite Blue Line.

  • Power on all lasers, and connect them one at a time.

  • Once all devices are connected, press "Start Testing".

Running the drill

  • Check in the appropriate athlete (details here) - optional.

  • With QuickRun on, when the athlete moves through the starting gate -timing will start (time will turn blue - indicating that timing is taking place), and you get a result when you cross the next gate.

  • With QuickRun off (option in settings) you will see “Set” and “Reset” buttons to give you control of when a test starts. Press "Set" once the athlete is ready to take off. Press "Reset" to clear the time for the next athlete.
