We measure dimensions of cognition using tests that quantify athletic performance.
Cognitive profiles are the new competitive edge.
BodhiSport helps teams identify and understand sport and position specific-cognitive talent, giving our client teams a serious competitive advantage in a complex and cutthroat market.
Cognition includes many kinds of information processing and performance — from recognizing faces to solving puzzles to throwing darts — and nobody is good or bad at everything. People are cognitively complex, with cognitive profiles that vary across different dimensions. We measure cognitive dimensions using scientifically validated tests that quantify, explain, and predict athletic ability and performance.
For example, in football, both offense and defense attempt to quickly interpret the opposition’s scheme before the ball is snapped. Then, during a play, both sides make speeded real-time decisions to respond to the opposition. Individually, players on both teams are using cognitive abilities to rocket or plod through decision trees on what they should do next, and those cognitive abilities they're using can be quantified and explained.
Decision making is just one relevant cognitive ability, and we measure the full range of cognitive abilities that help determine successful preparation and execution at every position, in every moment.

Use our suite of cognitive tests backed by 100+ years of research, and proprietary insight to discover and develop the best athletes for every position in every sport.
Create cognitive profiles for individual athletes to gain insight into their strengths and weaknesses and coach them better.
Compare performance and cognitive abilities across athletes and teams to understand which specific abilities make your top performers great.
Make better roster decisions by assessing a player's match to Cognitive Profiles of Strength for each position.
Create your own comparison groups to see how your current lineup looks against teams across the country, or against some of your own past rosters.
A detailed cognitive profile allows a coach or scout to peek into the mind of an athlete.
Coaches can utilize identified cognitive strengths to optimize strategy such as play-calling, and a given player’s responsibilities on the field.
Scouts can determine how well a candidate fits into a team’s scheme and the positional demands, such as offense or defense.
President & CEO
As a longtime coach, Ben has spent decades assessing athletic talent. In 2018 he called one of his oldest friends, Justin Junge, to discuss using visual cognitive tests to help quantify athletic performance. It was the latest of countless conversations about cognition going back to 1999 when Ben and Justin were undergrads at Yale and Harvard, respectively. This particular chat was the beginning of the BodhiMetrics family of companies, as their conversations immediately spread to workplace, education, and individual applications for such testing data. Ben now lives and works in Philadelphia, PA, where BodhiMetrics is headquartered. His dog, a border collie named Bodhi, is the inspiration for the company name, and a very good boy.
