Abstract [en]

In North America ice hockey is considered to be the fastest of all teamsports with high demands

on leg strength and power. These two factors are crucial for acceleration and the total speed

performance during a hockeygame. Skating performance requires a muscle engagement which

also occurs during the Y-Balance Test (YBT). Some of the most active muscles during ice

skating are biceps femoris, tibialis anterior and vastus medialis , these muscles are also some of

the most active muscles during the YBT. The similarities between those two activities enable a

possible relationship between skating velocity and YBT.

This study investigated the relationship between dynamic postural control and on ice

performance which includes 52 meter forward skating. The purpose of this study was to see if

there is a significant correlation between skating velocity and the performance on YBT.

Methods: 7 male ice hockey players in ages between 18-19 years performed a 52 meter forward

skating test and a test for evaluating their dynamic postural control. The method used for

measuring the dynamic postural control was the YBT.

Results: There was no significant correlation between the YBT longitudinal directions, the total

score and 52 meter forward skating. The strongest association (0,570) was shown between the

YBT anterior longitudinal direction and 52 meter forward skating. The total score on YBT did

not show a significant correlation with 52 meter forward skating, with a correlationcoefficient of

0,251.

Conclusion: Due to several management errors during the YBT the results showed no

significance. We can not for certain say that there is no significant correlation due to for instance

management errors and the deficiency pf power. Future studies are needed to determine if there

is a significant correlation between skating velocity and the performance on YBT.
