The objective of this study was to determine whether a six week neuromuscular training program is effective for improving single leg- hop test performance in young soccer players. Thirty–two young soccer players from the Dardanel Sport Club participated in this study; comprising a research group (age= 15 years, height=1.72±5.98 m, weight= 62.56 ± 6.12 kg) and control group (age=14 years, height =1.70±5.32 m, weight=58.6 ± 7.24 kg). Soccer players were asked to perform single-leg hop distance measurement. All subjects completed tests before and after training (single leg hop test) and following a 6-week training program. Results: There was a statistically significant difference in right leg hop distance between research and control group (p<0.05). Conclusion: Implemented short term training resulted in improvements in the parameters investigated in this study. However, it was only effective on right leg hop distance.Pages: 01-04 | 1532 Views 67 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
