Abstract [en]

AIM: The aim of this study was to determine if the repeated sprint ability test (RSA-test) could be used to measure the repeated sprint ability for female floorball players and if a 7 weeks training intervention could improve the RSA-result. The intervention group was analyzed for the number of ball contacts to study if the RSA-test could be used to measure match performance.

METHODS: Two female floorball teams (intervention group, n=16, 16,9 ±0,9 years, control group, n=10, 18,7 ±3,6 years) participated in the study. The intervention group performed seven training weeks of sprint- and repeated sprint training. Before and after the 7 week intervention both groups conducted a RSA-test of 6x40m (2x20m) all-out sprints, interspersed with 25 s of a passive recovery. Two games were recorded with a video camera in the intervention group and the number of ball contacts was analyzed.

RESULTS: There was no significant difference in the base line values of the RSA-test between the two groups. There was a significant improvement between the intervention groups baseline and follow up values in RSA mean time (p <0,01) and RSA best time (p<0,01). There was no significant improvement in the control group. Between the two groups there was a significant difference in RSA mean time (p <0,05) for the intervention group. The number of ball contacts was unchanged after the intervention period.

CONCLUSION: The completed 7 week intervention proved that repeated sprint training in combination with single sprint training is a way to improve the RSA mean time and RSA best time in this group of floorball players. The RSA-test could not prove any match performance, measured as ball contacts.

Key words: Floorball, repeated sprint ability, sprint training, match performance,
