Into youth soccer, it is very important to carry out evaluation tests, to obtain different data concerning the development of various skills during the growth process.Their tracking could be important for the trainer to reorganize the planning of training session and adapting it to individual athlete.The aim of this study is to collect quantitative data on anthropometric aspects and performance, and eventually re-use them to make changes in the training method.Research is experimental and has to follow the usual parameters for monitoring training courses. Anthropometric data are weight, height and BMI, while performance data include endurance with VO2max calculation (Cooper Test), speed (Three corner run) and agility (speed dribbling test). Tests were performed on a sample of 13 athletes of 13 years oldwho attended the under-14 regional championship.The data of the group under examination were compared with the absolute reference data of the functional evaluation present in the literature. BMI data shows that 6 arenormal weight, 4 in overweight and 3 overweight. Cooper test data shows that 2 are above-average, 5 on average, 5 below average and 1 low. Average speed of the triangle test is 32.38 seconds while the average of dibbling test is 25.39 seconds. Data must be useful as a tool for planning the training session.

Abstract

Into youth soccer, it is very important to carry out evaluation tests, to obtain different data concerning the development of various skills during the growth process.Their tracking could be important for the trainer to reorganize the planning of training session and adapting it to individual athlete.The aim of this study is to collect quantitative data on anthropometric aspects and performance, and eventually re-use them to make changes in the training method.Research is experimental and has to follow the usual parameters for monitoring training courses. Anthropometric data are weight, height and BMI, while performance data include endurance with VO2max calculation (Cooper Test), speed (Three corner run) and agility (speed dribbling test). Tests were performed on a sample of 13 athletes of 13 years oldwho attended the under-14 regional championship.The data of the group under examination were compared with the absolute reference data of the functional evaluation present in the literature. BMI data shows that 6 arenormal weight, 4 in overweight and 3 overweight. Cooper test data shows that 2 are above-average, 5 on average, 5 below average and 1 low. Average speed of the triangle test is 32.38 seconds while the average of dibbling test is 25.39 seconds. Data must be useful as a tool for planning the training session.
