Zikica Tasevski, Nebojsa Markovski, Vujica Zivkovic

This research is realized in order for the differences in certain motor tests in various somatotypes of young football players, at the age of 16, to be determined. It has been realized with a sample of 100 football players, aged 16 (± 6 months). In order for the aims of the research to be fulfilled, there were 21 variables applied: 11 anthropometrical variables for assessing the morphological status of the football players, and 10 variables for assessing the basic-motor skills. The differences in anthropometrical measurements and basic-motor tests between the various groups of young, 16-year-old football players are classified by the somatotype components, and they are determined with the univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA) and appropriate LSD-tests (Last Significant Difference). The statistically important univariate intergroup differences in the basic-motor tests among the groups of young football players defined on the basis of the somatotype components are determined in the variables: muscle ups endurance, standing long jump,10-meter running with standing start, 20-meter running with flying start, and 30-meter running with standing start.
