ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to investigate the relationships between ball throwing velocity (BTV), and physical features and anaerobic power (AP) for talent identification in team handball players. Players (n: 54) at 21,91 ± 4,94 age, training experience 11,19 ± 4,46 years participated voluntarily to study. These players consist of 54 Turkish national team female players. Spearman Correlation analysis was used for statistical evaluation and significance level was accepted as p<0.05. All statistical analyses were applied in SPSS 17.0. AP was calculated with Lewis formula. Significant relationships were determined between body height (r= 0.393; p=,003), body weight (r= 0.397; p=,003), hand length (r= 0.391; p=,003), arm span (r= 0.462; p=,000) and BTV during the 3-step running throw (p<0.05). There were no significant relationships between BTV and training experience, body mass index, vertical jump height, AP (p>0.05). In conclusion, it was determined that body height, body weight, hand length and arm span influence BTV positively. It is suggested to coaches and physical education teachers that children who have great body height, hand size, and arm span should be considered during talent identification applies for team handball in school.
