ABSTRACT

Basketball relies on ideal physical conditions. Power, agility, and strength are three of the most significant physical characteristics. To develop an appropriate training program depends on age, knowledge of power, agility, and strength are required. The study's goal was to examine power, agility and strength as a function of age. Ex post facto sampling was used in this study, and it was done using the purposive sampling strategy. Research participants were basketball junior players aged 15 to 18 years who were divided into 3 groups based on age. Vertical leap, 505, barbell squat, and bench press were the test instruments used. Kruskal Wallis and post hoc tests were used to analyze the research data. The power analysis was found to be 0.041>0.05, agility 0.094>0.05, leg strength 0.0010.05, and arm 0.0000.05 based on the Kruskal Wallis test results. The sig value of the post hoc test on the study of leg and arm strength was 0.0000.05. In conclusion, there was no significant difference between the analyses of power and agility, but there was a significant difference between the analyses of arm and leg strength at the ages of 15 and 18. The results of these findings can be used to increase the knowledge base and as an evaluation material for coaches for their athletes.
