Adolescent Sports Metrics (ASM) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2017. ASM’s mission is to collect data from young athletes during UIL Pre-Participation Evaluations in order to establish what “normal” looks like in this demographic group. “Normal” data ranges are not currently available for various reasons, primarily because this age group does not see healthcare providers unless ill. As a result, the data collected during sick visits do not improve diagnoses for providers or outcomes for patients. By providing better formative data to healthcare providers/researchers, we believe we will enable improved information and outcomes for providers as well as patients.
We are the Platinum Level assessment we would want for our own children. Please let us serve your children with the same Platinum Level assessment.
ASM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit working under an IRB (research) collecting data to establish normal reference ranges on the pediatric and adolescent demographic. All students that participate are de-identified, meaning none of the data collected can be connected to their identity which completely preserves participant privacy.
By allowing us to serve your children, you allow us to serve everyone's in the future with better data, for better research and better futures.
Our partner, Quest Diagnostics, reported that to date our research has established 80 new reference ranges for children ages 10-17! Please help us continue to serve our children by having your student athlete participate in the FREE Full Research Protocol Physical.
Please call 469-657-5244 or email us to learn more or schedule your child's appointment today!

Under an IRB research protocol, our Full Protocol Pre-Participation physical is FREE and includes: everything in the standard physical plus an EKG/ECG, baseline concussion testing with digital vestibular testing, posturography, digital spinal and extremity ROM & strength testing, diagnostic hearing and vision evaluation, tanner scoring, a full set of labs that Quest diagnostics performs, and much much more. The "Full Protocol" is available for ages 3-19 and is ONLY performed in the ASM office.
The Standard Pre-Participation Physical includes: blood pressure and pulse measurements (heart rate and rhythm), vision testing, examination of heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat & evaluation of posture, joints, strength, and flexibility.
Sports Physical based on basic UIL Pre-Participation Physical.
Blood Pressure, HR, Pulse OX are all taken bilaterally along with the temperature. The blood pressure is taken with Omron equipment in a seated position to stay consistent with AMA guidelines.
This testing is done using a digital hearing test that test baseline hearing unilaterally, bilaterally, as well as, sound to noise ratio. Including Otoscopic exam with pictures.
We have created a guide that walks Parents, Guardians, Students & Coaches through the process of filling out the UIL Pre-Participation Medical History Form. This form should always be filled out in its entirety before a student plans to receive a physical. Use the Table of Contents links and the HOME button located on the bottom right corner of each slide to navigate to and from specific questions and explanations. This step-by-step guide was only designed to address common questions and errors made while filling out the questionnaire. The information provided in this guide is not in lieu of medical advice.
If you have any questions or problems while viewing the guide, please send us an email and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
Postural Assessment is a guide to determining muscular or fascial imbalance and whether that imbalance contributes to a patient's pain or dysfunction
Preseason SCAT5 baseline testing can be useful for interpreting post-injury test scores.
It is well established in the scientific literature that even mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBIs) affect balance; for this reason, tasks involving balance and coordination are commonly used to determine neurological function in sports-related concussion.
Assessment of sport-specific movement demands thorough musculoskeletal screening and functional performance testing. This is essential for rehabilitation professionals.
Strength testing can provide crucial insight into a person's functional abilities and assist in rehabilitation if injured.
Not only is the vision screened for appropriate referral but the pupil sizes are digitally measured and assist with baseline concussion comparison.
The retina is the only portion of the central nervous system visible from the exterior. Likewise the fundus is the only location where vasculature can be visualized. The fundoscopic exam can discover pathological process otherwise invisible and being able to stage both diabetes and hypertension.
This is performed in order to examine the 'external auditory canal' – the tunnel that leads from the outer ear (pinna) to the eardrum. Inspection of the eardrum can also provide a lot of information about what's happening within the middle ear – the space within the skull where the hearing and balance mechanisms are situated.
The scale defines physical measurements of development based on external primary and secondary sex characteristics, such as the size of the breasts, genitals, testicular volume and development of pubic hair. The complex series of biologic transitions are known as puberty, and these changes may impact psychosocial factors.
Accurate ECG interpretation in athletes requires adequate training and an attention to detail to distinguish physiological ECG findings from abnormal ECG findings that might indicate the presence of cardiac pathology. The international consensus standards presented on ECG interpretation and the evaluation of ECG abnormalities serve as an important foundation for improving the quality of cardiovascular care of athletes. As new scientific data become available, revision of these recommendations may be necessary to further advance the accuracy of ECG interpretation in the athletic population.
