Nebraska High School Performance Index State Championship

The universal language of sport

EAPI logo.png

The Epley Athletic Performance Index (EAPI) consists of Speed, Agility and Power tests which are measured indoors on a basketball surface (for consistency). The 10 yard Dash measures linear Speed, the Pro-Agility (5-10-5) measures Agility and ability to change direction and accelerate, and the Broad Jump (Standing Long Jump) is a very good measure of explosive Power.


The EAPI has proven to be a valuable tool for identifying athletic talent. Using the three performance tests along with the size of the athlete, a comprehensive assessment can be generated. The Index can identify athletic talent for power sports and help coaches determine an athlete’s potential as well as their and progress in training.


The EAPI identifies the athlete’s strengths and points out areas where they can improve. In addition, it is a great tool for coaches to audit their programming and obtain an unbiased measure of improvement.

Important information

  • Electronic timing is required for measuring the 10 yard dash and Pro-Agility - to remove any bias or human error. If you do not have an electronic timing system, please try to borrow one from a program that does, or purchase one. We suggest the Dashr system, the minimum required for this testing would be their 2-Gate System.

  • If you would like to participate using hand timing, you can submit your results as outlined above and you will receive an email back with the non-official EAPI scores, but they will not be included in the competition.

  • The State Championship Competition will take place on an indoor basketball court using Dashr timing equipment. It is suggested that you test your athletes on a basketball court to better mimic this event.

  • The Leaderboards will go live in January of 2023.

  • The top 4 athletes from each Class and gender will be invited to the State Championship.
