Abstract

The aim of this research is to determine the differences in explosive power between basketball players of different age. This research was conducted on the sample of 34 basketball players, 17 of them were at the age of 11 and 17 of them were at the age of 14 (±0.5 years). They are all members of basketball club 'Ras', Novi Pazar. Six different kinds of test were used to estimate their explosive power: long jump, triple jump, medicine balls throw while lying, medicine ball sit‐up throw, sprinting in 20 m from the low start position, sprinting in 30 m from the high start position. For identifying the significant differences in main values of two groups of players was used t-test. The statistics significance in differences was analyzed at the level (p<0.05). The results show that there are statistically significant differences between basketball players of different age in all observed variables and that they go in favor of players aged 14.
