ABSTRACT
In this study, it was aimed to determine the somatotypes and performance characteristics of boys for football branch. 171 volunteer boys aged 9±1 participated in the study. Age, height, weight, skinfold thickness, circumference and width measurements of the boys were taken. Heath-Carter method was used to determine their somatotypes. Mean values and standart deviations of all the measurements taken were calculated. . Correlate (bivariate) was apllied to determine whether there was a relationship between their somatotypes and performances. Statistical analyses of the measurements were done through SPSS 13. The mean values of the boys (n=171) participated in the study were as follows; mean weight 28,8±3,5 kg; mean height 132,1±5,3 cm, and performance mean values were; vertical jump mean value 18,6±,05 cm, standing long jump mean value 108,93±16,89 cm, 20 m run mean value 4,39±,40 sec. and the mean values of their somatotype compounds were endomorphy 3,12±,25, mesomorphy 4,02±,29, ectomorphy 3,04±,28. Pysical fitness values including athletes’ physical and athropometric characterstics are fundemental in guidance for sports. We believe that the study, besides its determining somatotypes and performance characteristics of boys, will contribute to the studies carried out in the field and also to the selection of the footballers at the early stages with the data obtained.
