‚ÄčThe Neutral Zone Fitness Assessment Program is a partnership between Neutral Zone, Sports Testing Inc. and Elite Training Systems. As you know, Neutral Zone is the largest and most respected amateur scouting organization in the world with tens of thousands of amateur scouting reports posted and thousands of subscribers to our website. 

Sports Testing Inc. has been the leading provider of hockey-specific on-ice testing and a developer of athletic assessment technology since its inception and is currently used by the NHL, the NCAA and the Canadian Hockey League (CHL).
