Abstract [sv]

Prestation i fotboll beror på många olika fysiska faktorer som exempelvis styrka,

uthållighet och snabbhet. Snabbheten kan delas upp i många olika faktorer

exempelvis sprinter rakt fram och agility. Det finns även något som kallas reaktiv

agility vilket betyder att man reagerar på ett visuellt stimuli och därefter reagerar med

ett beslut. En förmåga som verkar bli mer central i fotbollen. Syftet med denna studie

var att utvärdera ett kort träningsprograms påverkan på de olika snabbhetsfaktorerna,

raka sprint, agility och reaktiv agility samt beräkna korrelationer mellan de olika

variablerna. Metod: Före- och eftertester gjordes på 19 ungdomar från svenska U17

allsvenskan. Testpersonerna delades därefter upp i en interventionsgrupp(IG)(N=9)

och en kontrollgrupp(KG)(N=10). Testerna som utfördes var Reactive agility

test(RAT), Agility 5-0-5 och 10- 20- 30 meter sprint. IG fick efter testerna utföra ett

träningspass i veckan under fem veckor bestående av två parövningar med fokus på

reaktionssnabbhet, sprint och agility. Resultat: Inga statistisk signifikanta skillnader

fanns mellan grupperna efter träningsperioden. Konklusion: Resultaten pekade mot

att interventionsprogrammet inte hade någon påverkan. Däremot går det att ifrågasätta

resultatet då eftertesterna utfördes på ett mindre bra sätt.

Abstract [en]

Performance in soccer can be defined in various different factors, like strength,

endurance and quickness. Quickness can be divined in different sub factors for

example straight sprints and agility. There is also something called reactive agility,

which means that you react to a visual stimulus and therefore react and take a

decision. The purpose: of this study was to investigate the effects of a short training

programme that focus on the different quickness factors, straight sprints, agility and

reactive agility. Method: Pre- and post-tests were made on 19 adolescents from the

Swedish U17 Allsvenskan. The subjects were later divided into an intervention group

(IG) and a control group (CG). The performed tests were: reactive agility test (RAT),

agility 5-0-5 and 10- 20- 30 m sprint. After the tests the IG performed a five week

long training programme containing two different duo exercises with focus on

reaction ability, agility and sprint. Result: No statistical significant difference was

detected between the groups after the training period in any of the tested variables.

Conclusion: The results suggest that the intervention programme had no effect. It

can, however, be challenged due to methodological issues that occurred during

testing.
