Basketball Yo-Yo Test Results

The results below are collated from various sources online, and the accuracy of the test results cannot be confirmed. It is usually not noted whether the yo-yo intermittent recovery test level 1 or 2 is used, so this list unfortunately may be a mixture of both. See also the Yo-Yo test top performances list (all sports).

The yo-yo test is part of the fitness testing protocols for many basketball teams. Basketballers at the Australian Institute of Sport and some of the regional programs undertake the yo-yo test four times a year (reported in 2012). See also the Yo-Yo test top performances list (all sports)
