Anthropometric and Motor Characteristics of South African National Level Female Soccer Players

analysis. The sum of the skinfolds was measured in millimeters (mm). Girth measurements were taken according to the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM) guidelines ( Thompson et al., 2010 ) at the waist and hip using a standard tape measure placed parallel with the ground. The waist circumference was measured between the umbilicus and the xiphoid process at the narrowest point. The hip circumference was measured at the greatest posterior protuberance of the hip and proximal thigh. A waist-to-hip ratio was then calculated. Power Power was assessed using the
