The main purpose of this research was to determine difference in kicking velocity between players of different age and players of the same age, but different biological age in futsal. The research was conducted on 40 young players ranging in age between 12 and 15, that play for MNK „Vrgorac“ from Vrgorac. All the subjects have been divided into U13 and U15, inside of each age are 2 groups based on biological age. Kicking speed has been analyzed based on biological age. All the subjects have been submitted to a series of 12 tests that evaluate kicking velocity of different kicking techniques. Preferred and non-preferred leg was measured in all subjects by Pocket radar. The results have shown difference between both groups in all kick types in favor of biologically more mature players. In this study biologically older futsal players performed faster kicks.
