ABSTRACT

This study aims to search the effects of plyometric education trainings which was applied for 10-week on static-dynamic balance and some psychomotor characteristics of students who were been handball team of school. The female students-players (N=16) who are in age 14,57±0,92 years. All student have got 3,66±0,63 years sport experience. Plyometric education trainings were performed twice a week for 10-week in the trainings of school handball team. Parameters such as body weight, height, vertical jump, standing long jump, 30m speed, agility, flexibility, and static-dynamic balance were measured and anaerobic power was calculated by Lewis formula. The SPSS 15.0 program was preferred for the statistics. Descriptive statistics were used for the analysis of psychomotor characteristics and paired sample t test was used for the differences between the pre-test and post-test of plyometric education training of the players. The significance level was set at 0.05. The differences were observed between the pre-test and post-test of plyometric education training of flexibility t(51)= -4,518 ; p= 0,00 , standing long jump t(12)= -8,129 ; p= 0,00 , anaerobic power t(01)= -3,018 ; p= 0,05 and left leg ellipse area at unipedal static balance t(39)= 2,399 ; p= 0,04 were found to be statistically significant (p≤0.05).
