Abstract

 Purpose: This study was designed to examine the relationship between multiple short-passing ability [measured using the Loughborough Soccer Passing Test (LSPT)] and athletic performances in youth soccer players.Methods: Forty-two young soccer players (age 14.8±0.4years) performed the LSPT, the squat-jump (SqJ), the counter movement jump (CMJ), the 30m sprints (with 5m and 20m split times also recorded), the 15m AGILITY run (Agility-15m), the 15m ball dribbling (Ball-15m), the Illinois AGILITY test (IAGT) and the Yo-Yo IRT Level 1 tests.Results: LSPT total performance (LSPT TP) showed significant positive correlation with 5m, 20m, and 30m sprint times, AGILITY-15m, Ball-15m and Illinois AGILITY test (r=0.60, r=0.58, r=0.49, r=0.75, r=0.71 and r=0.72; P<0.01, respectively). Significant negative correlation were found between LSPT TP and SqJ and CMJ (r=-0.62 and r=-0.64; P<0.01, respectively). It was determined that AGILITY-15m, Illinois AGILITY test and Ball-15m were the most effective factors associated with LSPT TP among other factors in multiple regression analysis.Conclusion: This study showed that LSPT TP of young elite soccer players is determined by their AGILITY abilities, thus enabling this test to be used for talent identification purposes.
