ABSTRACT
The study was carried out to determine the effect of plyometric training on some physical and physiological parameters of 16-18 years old male soccer players. A total of 24 soccer player (12 as experimental group and 12 as control group) volunteered to participate in the study. The both groups regularly participated in soccer trainings and also the experimental group was trained by plyometric training method twice a week along 10 weeks. A pre-test and a post-test were applied to the groups before and after 10 weeks of training respectively. The physical and the physiological parameters of subject were tested by scientifically valid laboratory and field tests.In statistical analysis, paired sample t-test for within group analysis and independent sample t-test for between group analysis were used in SPSS 11.0 for Windows. After 10 weeks training period, it was found that there was significant difference between the pre-tes and post-test of the following parameters of experimental group; IKAS, body fat percentage, anaerobic power, flexibility, 30 m speed run, aerobic power and 15 seconds repeated jump and body weight . On the other hand, in the control group, there was significant difference in all parameters, except anaerobic power and 15 seconds repeated jump.When the experimental group was compared with control group, no differences were found in the pre-test values of groups. However, in post-test, significant differences were observed in anaerobic power, flexibility and 15 seconds repeated jump values . In conclusion; it was found that 10 weeks plyometric training applied concurrent with the standard soccer training has positive effect on flexibility, anaerobic power, maximal power, 15 seconds repeated jump.
