Dr. Tilahun Bereded Shiferaw


Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the performance-related fitness of Ethiopian Youth Sports Academy U15, U17, and U20 male football players. The entire population was taken for participation in this study rather than a sample due to the relatively small population size (all N = 80) and ease of accessibility. The study was used agility (Illinois Agility Test), 1.5-mile run and speed (10, 20 and 40 meters sprint) to evaluate the performance related physical fitness of football players. One way ANOVA was used as a part of inferential statistics using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 20. From the result, a significant difference has occurred at the p <.05 level in their agility, a 1.5-mile run, 10m, and 20m and 40m sprints. Therefore, it is possible to conclude that age groups are major factors for agility, a 1.5-mile run, and 10m, 20m and 40m sprint in Ethiopian youth sports academy football player.
