THE CORRELATION BETWEEN AEROBIC POWER, ACCELERATION, REPEATED-SPRINT AND SPEED ENDURANCE IN ELITE FEMALE FOOTBALL

Kemal Idrizović, Niko Raičković

The main aim of this research was to ascertain relations between aerobic endurance, starting acceleration, consecutive sprints and speed endurance of elite female footballers. The sample of the examinee for this study consisted of 24 female footballers of Montenegrin national team, except for goalkeeper’s participation because of a significantly different profile of the position of this player which would influence the final results of this research. The abilities that were the topic of this study were estimated on the following motoricity tests; Yo-Yo intermittent recovery test (level 1), 10 m sprint, 5x 10 m sprint and 300 yards. By a correlation analyse it was ascertained that mutually statistically significantly correlate tests 10 m sprint and 5x10 m sprint (r=.39, p<.05), then 10 m sprint and tests 300 yards ( r=.48, p=0.1). Beside these statistically significant correlation coefficients, it was ascertained that Yo-Yo intermittent recovery tests (level 1) left no one statistically significant correlation with remaining tests. The conclusion derived from the results of this research is that elite footballers with high potentials of a starting speed also have ability of their consecutive repetitions, and for persistent manifesting of sub-maximum fast running. On the other side, their aerobic potentials do not have a statistically significant connection with such activities.
