Although ball screens are widely used in modern basketball, little is known about its efficiency in female competitions. In this study, we identified the predictors of success in ball screens considering time, space, player, task, and contextual related variables in elite women's basketball. The sample comprised 1131 ball screens from 23 close game...

We aim to (1) estimate age of attainment of the peak mid-growth spurt in stature (age-at-peak MGS) in pre-adolescent boys and girls; (2) identify the timing, intensity, and sequences of physical fitness (PF) spurts aligned by the age-at-peak MGS; and (3) identify any sex differences in PF spurts aligned by age-at-peak MGS. The sample included 180 P...

The current study intended to investigate the effects of a self-training program on shooting performance and kinematics of young basketball players. Fourteen male basketball players aged 16.64±.50 years, divided in control group (n=7) and experimental group (n=7), were assessed on free-throw, two-point and three-point shooting performance and on fo...

Nos jogos desportivos coletivos (JDC) as ações do jogo são o resultado das interações dos jogadores no confronto com a oposição dos adversários, ações estas baseadas de forma adequada no espaço e no tempo disponíveis. Trata-se, assim, dos jogadores pro- curarem distinguir num envolvimento em constante mudança e de forma imprevisível as informações...

Although technical skills are a prerequisite for success in basketball, little is known about how they develop over time. In this study, we model the trajectories of technical skill development in young basketball players and investigate the effects of training experience, training volume, body composition, maturity status, physical performance, an...

BACKGROUND: Validated tests for the quality of movement patterns are important to help teachers to assess and induce positive performance changes. However, few tests are available for handball sport skills. AIM: Therefore, we developed and validated a checklist to assess dribbling with a jumping throw. METHOD: First, three handball experts were inv...
Article
In this paper, we outline a systematic testing programme developed to help identify excellence in youth basketball players. We examine the links between biological maturation and training experience with anthropometry, body composition, physical performance, technical and tactical skills from five agecohorts, and characterize, in detail, facets of...

This study investigated developmental stability, or tracking, in the development of technical skills in youth male basketball players and retrospectively profiled stable and unstable tracking patterns over time. A total of 97 basketball players were tracked bi-annually over 3 consecutive years. Players were divided into two age-categories according...

This study aimed to (1) estimate age‐at‐mid‐growth spurt (age‐at‐MGS) in Portuguese boys from two different regions—the Azores islands and Viana do Castelo, and (2) identify spurts in a variety of physical fitness (PF) components aligned by age‐at‐MGS in the two samples. A total of 176 (Azores, n = 91; Viana do Castelo, n = 85) boys aged 6 years ol...

Youth soccer performance is multifaceted, includes physical growth, biological maturation, and physical fitness, and is linked to the sporting environment to which the players are exposed. We aim to describe age-related associations in body physique, body composition, physical performance technical and tactical skills, psychological and club charac...

Full-text available
Although successful performance in basketball requires high levels of muscular strength during adolescence, its development is confounded by the effects of normal growth. We examine the timing, intensity and sequence of muscular strength according to biological age (years from peak height velocity (PHV)) and hypothesize that young basketball player...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Data relating physical performance to the timing of the adolescent growth spurt are limited. Aim: This study identifies: (i) age-at-peak height velocity (APHV), (ii) physical performance spurt patterns aligned to APHV; and (iii) cross-cultural and time patterns in Canadian, Brazilian and Portuguese boys. Subjects and methods: A total o...

This study (1) investigated the effects of age, maturity status, anthropometrics, and years of training on 11–14-year-old male basketball players’ physical performance and technical skills development, and (2) estimated the contribution of maturity status and training years on players’ physical and technical performances. The sample consisted of 15...

INTRODUCTION: Youth sports excellence is the result of complex interactions of genetic material and environmental factors. Although such interactions are accepted as determinants of players’ development, apparently no coherent research agenda has integrated young players’ skills and aptitudes within their family support systems, coaches’ levels of...

INTRODUCTION: High performance basketball requires, even during adolescence, exceptional physical and physiological attributes (1). Top-level technical skills (TS) are very important in identifying excellence in youth players (2). It is well-known that age, sex and competitive level differences are amplified by inter-individual differences related...

INTRODUCTION: It is well-known that young soccer players´technicalplayers´technical, tactical and physical skills are building blocks for their success in competition [1]. Coaches and sport scientists usually assess such skills mainly using small-sided games (SSG) and test batteries (drills). This study aimed to verify the differences between tacti...

INTRODUCTION: Previous research has shown that non-dominance of feet is an important factor in a soccer players´ expertise and should be developed from early ages. This type of training is performed in decontextualized conditions or in isolated drill settings which raise issues related to its efficiency. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate w...

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of a self-training program on shooting performance of young basketball players. Fourteen male basketball players aged 16.64 ± 0.50 years, divided in control group (n = 7) and experimental group (n = 7), were assessed on free-throw, 2-point and 3-point shooting performance, before and a...

This study investigated the roles of growth, maturation, physical fitness, and technical skills on selection onto an under-14 years basketball team. The sample consisted of 150 male players, aged 13.3 ± 0.7 years, divided into selected (SE—top players chosen by coaching staff to form an elite regional team) and non-selected (NSE—remaining players)...

This study identified the game-related statistics that best differentiate national and foreign players competing in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 Portuguese Basketball League (LPB) seasons. Sample included 337 male professional basketball players, divided in national (n=249), community (n=30) and extra-community (n=58) according to their nationality. The...
