THE INFLUENCE OF MATCH-INDUCED FATIGUE ON CHANGE OF DIRECTION TECHNIQUE IN SOCCER PLAYERS

Session

Sport, Health and Society

Description

Evidence regarding match -induced fatigue effect on change of direction (COD) technique among soccer players is scarce. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of fatigue exerted during different time-periods of a youth soccer match on the players' ability to perform 15m COD, and COD technical executions. Ten young male soccer players (age=16 ± 0.57yr, body mass = 66.41 ± 6.48 kg, and body height = 177.7 ± 6.73 cm) participated in this study. The testing procedures were organized in the following order: 1) standardized warm-up; 2) pre-match (COD); 3) after 20’of play (COD and RPE); 4) after 40’ (COD, RPE); 5) after 60’ (COD, RPE); 6) post-match (COD, RPE). Moreover, COD executions were recorded and analyzed. A fatigue-effect on COD technique (from sharp to rounded executions) was found. Significant differences (p < 0.05) in RPE and session-RPE values between match periods were found. In summary, COD performance was compromised during and at the end of the soccer match, being more prone to be affected by fatigue. Indeed, it can be speculated that a "sharp" execution requires more power production and therefore is more prone to be affected from fatigue.
