study demonstrate the importance of training experience in technical and tactical development in youth soccer. Collectively, the Yo-Yo test, the Counter Movement Jump, abdominal strength, and body mass predicted 33% of the variance in defensive tactical performance of 12-17 year-old soccer players. It is possible that the strongest players were encouraged by coaches to adopt more defensive roles and tactics, as greater body size and physical strength contribute to an advantage in the defensive system, since invasion sports are characterized by intense physical

, every team was only allowed to participate in a maximum of two games. Design and Procedures To avoid game-effects occurring at the beginning or the end of a match such as testing the limits of the referees (e.g. permitted hardness in body contacts), fatigue effects, personal duels or crunch-time-factors (e.g. special team tactics like one-on-one defence), we only analysed the actions between the 10 th and 20 th minute of each game. Only the attacks against organized defences in 6 vs. 6 situations were considered. Furthermore, only such situations were taken

The aim of this study was to perform a comparative analysis of maximal muscle torques at individual stages of development of athletes and to determine the relationship between muscle torques, fighting methods and the level of sports performance.

The activity of 25 judo contestants during judo combats and the effectiveness of actions were evaluated. Maximum muscle torques in flexors/extensors of the body trunk, shoulder, elbow, hip and knee joints were measured. The level of significance was set at p≤0.05; for multiple comparisons the Mann-Whitney U test, p≤0.016, was used. Intergroup differences in relative torques in five muscle groups studied (elbow extensors, shoulder flexors, knee flexors, knee extensors, hip flexors) were not significant. In cadets, relative maximum muscle torques in hip extensors correlated with the activity index (Spearman's r=0.756). In juniors, maximum relative torques in elbow flexors and knee flexors correlated with the activity index (r=0.73 and r=0.76, respectively). The effectiveness of actions correlated with relative maximum torque in elbow extensors (r=0.67). In seniors, the relative maximum muscle torque in shoulder flexors correlated with the activity index during the second part of the combat (r=0.821).

Introduction Table tennis is a sport in which highly refined skills and tactics are required. Players alternately and repeatedly hit a 2.7 g ball on a 2.75 X 1.525 m table. The ball and the court are much smaller than those employed in other racket sports. The spin, velocity and placement of the ball are controlled by players to make it difficult for opponents to successfully return it. The challenges faced by table tennis players, therefore, are to determine the optimal shot and execute it precisely, even when the ball hit by the opponent is spinning and

and Dvorak, 2010 ), and psychological aspects ( Geisler and Kerr, 2007 ). From a performance analysis perspective the available research is limited and the studies have mainly analysed a variety of tactics and match situations. On the one hand, the researchers have studied tactical approaches in futsal ( Lapresa et al., 2013 ). These studies highlighted the importance of tactical systems and space as key indicators when finalising ball possession in futsal. On the other hand, futsal has been studied from tactical modelling and dynamic perspectives ( Fonseca et al
