Abstract: Different scholars explain the soccer passing technique. Sam S. (2010)explained that passing techniques plays a multi-function in the soccer game and it is the action of giving the ball to a team-mate. It allows a team to keep ball possession, set up attacks, change the direction of play, counter-attack and provide a decisive or final pass. As a result, soccer passing technical skill plays a variety functions in the different playing positions of the field. Successful passing is the performance of giving the ball to a team-mate player. This study was done to look any significant differences between the selected soccer playing position players regarding the passing technical skill execution variables of on target pass, off target pass, and total passing attempt frequency ball count in the league, league zones, and find out whether defenders, midfielders, and attackers players differed in passing technical skill execution frequency ball count because of their playing positions in the U17 male youth soccer tournament league season of 205/16,Ethiopia. In the league, 126 games were conducted in three zones (central, south-east, and qualified) during 1st, 2nd and final rounds. Data were obtained from 96 games, which were sampled from each zones of the league using stratified random sampling method and chosen using simple random sampling technique. The data was collected from every defender, midfielder, and attacker players who participate in the sampled games by recording videos of these games. Sample size was determined from each stratum of the league games using Yamane’s (1967) simplified formula (n = N / [1 + N (e) 2]) for proportions with 95% confidence level and p=0.5 assumed. Where, “n” is the sample size, in this study it is represented as “g”, “N”, represented here as “G”, the population size (total games of the U17 male youth league), and “e” is the level of precision. IBM SPSS Statistics Version-22 was used to analyse the data statistically using inferential statistics (independent sample t-test to look any significant differences or similarities in the on target pass, off target pass, and total passing attempt frequency ball count during the games of the U17 male youth soccer players based on their playing positions in the league and league zones of the 2015/16 tournament season of Ethiopia. As a result from the findings of the U17 male youth soccer players in the 2015/16 league season games of Ethiopia about the game condition passing technical skill execution frequency ball count of on target pass, off target pass, and total passing attempts; there was a significant difference between defender and midfielder, defender and attacker, and midfielder and attacker players because of their playing positions in the games in their passing technical skill executions and this reveals that playing position have an effect in differing the technical skill executions frequency ball count of passing on target, passing off target and total passing attempt during games.
