BACKGROUND: The main aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between field tests and match running performance using computational tracking technology in high-level young Brazilian soccer players.
METHODS: Twenty-five young male Brazilian soccer players participated in this study (U-15, N.=13; U-17, N.=12). In the same week, the players were submitted to field tests and actual matches. The field tests were: Maximum Speed (10-30 m), Zig-Zag, Running-based Anaerobic Sprint Test, and Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test Level 1. Additionally, participants performed actual soccer match-play. Match running performance was collected using a fixed video-camera. Subsequently, computerized tracking video-analysis (30 Hz) was utilized to identify each physical performance indicator. Pearson’s correlation and linear regression were used for statistical analysis.
RESULTS: The results showed that the majority of field tests were not related to match running performance. The Zig-Zag Test, Running-based Anaerobic Sprint Test, and Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test level 1 seem to be the most specific tests (r=0.41-0.47), however the explanatory powers of these field tests in relation to match running performance were low (R2=17-22%).
CONCLUSIONS: Assessment of match running performance should be included in the evaluation periods of young soccer players, together with the most specific tests reported.
