Abstract

Peculiarity of some sports and sports disciplines is in their competitive structure. So, it is necessary to research and prove practically the peculiarities of some sports including firstly genetic limit of anthropological abilities and characteristics. The aim of the research is to determine morphological characteristics of young footballers according to their position in a team. The sample of 206 examinees aged 17-18 was analyzed (young footballers) and it was divided into 5 subsamples according to examinees position in a team: forwarders (45), midfield players (47), detenders (41), central detenders (44) and goalkeepers (29). This research includes morphological characteristics which imply four latent di­mensions. Fourteen anthropometric measures were determined which hypothetically assess mentioned latent morphological dimensions. Results show significant difference between 5 subsamples in the game for charac­teristics: body height, body weight, leg length, foot length, pelvis width, knee diameter, anklebone diameter, midbust volume, lower leg volume and back fold. There was no difference with the following characteristics: upper leg volume, upper arm fold, stomach fold, upper leg fold.
