Due to the substantial financial and social benefits of reducing injury prevalence, movement competency screen (MCS) is an extremely common tool utilised across all levels of the sporting community. A key requirement of a MCS is that it must be reliable, and although previous research has claimed various MCS demonstrate good rater reliability, there are major limitations in this previous research methodology including low sample size and inappropriate statistical methods. This study therefore aims to determine the reliability of a field-based MCS in novice and expert raters, and determine if there is a learning effect present for both rater and participant.
