ABSTRACT
Eighty-nine amateur male soccer players who compete in Eskişehir Super Amateur Leagues from different playing positions (goal keeper (n=9), defense (n=25), midfielder (n=41) and striker (n=14) had volunteered to the study. Body Fat Percentage (BFP), Body Mass Index (BMI), 10, 20 and 30 m sprint scores, skills together with ball and without ball, vertical jump heights, leg strength and flexibility values regarding soccer players have been measured. ANOVA test was used to determine differences between performance values according to playing positions. TUKEY test was used to identify which groups had significant differences. 10m, 20m and 30m sprint values, leg strength, jump heights, BFP and BMI had shown no statistical difference in terms of players’ playing positions. Besides, a significant difference has been calculated (p≤0.01) in between goalkeepers and midfielder players and goalkeepers demonstrated higher values in terms of flexibility. According to results of HUFA test, there was no significant difference among the players’ position from technical index aspect. Besides, there was significant differences in the case of technical scores (p≤0.0016). However; occurred significant difference in terms of technical scores has been calculated between goalkeepers-defense players and between goalkeepers-midfielder players (p≤0.05) and defense and midfielder players finished HUFA test in shorter time than goalkeepers. It can be concluded from the current results that the condition trainings are prepared according to basic needs of soccer; however; it does not include the principle of training specificity in terms of playing position in amateur teams.Key Words:
