Abstract:
The aim of this study was to evaluate performance factors of college soccer players as per their playing position. A total of 82 college soccer players were selected and classified into goalkeeper (n=8), defender (n=20), midfielder (n=19) and forward (n=35) positions. All subjects were assessed tests on Handgrip, Sit-up, Harvard step-up, height and weight, sit and reach. The dribble, lofted-pass, shooting, short pass, and juggling tests were for soccer skills. Harvard test score was significantly differing but not in soccer’s skills test score based on player position.
Further, it was found significantly greater in midfielders as compare to forward players (P<0.05). Hence, we suggest that, all the players must have proper physical fitness and specific skills need to improve based on player’s position to attain better performance.
