The thesis is a contribution to better, well-planned and more efficient work with young women soccer players in Slovenia. The goal od the task is to measure some motor and funkcional abilities of 13- and 14-year-old women soccer players and to determine whether the differences between these two groups are statstically significat in the six tests. The aim is also to develop normatives based on the results of both samples for each category separately, to compare them with each other and to compare them with existing normatives.
The sample of measurments was represented by 52 soccer players from eleven Slovenian women's soccer clubs (30 fourteen and 22 thirteen year-olds). For measurements, we used tests that were repeatedly used in similar surveys: sprint on 20 meters (S20m), combined semicircle (KP), running with changes of direction (TSS), dribbling with changes of direction (VSS) and enduring run here-there (TST). Also these tests are used in the annual testing for girl's national teams. The data were processed using The IBM SPSS Statistics 22. We calculated descriptive statistics parameters, determined whether the individual test differences were statistically significant using the Kolmogorov – Smirnov test, and we calculated the normed values for each test seperately and for each age seperately and combined.
We rejected the first hypothesis (H01), since the data in the test running with change of direction (TSS) did not deviate from the normal distribution. The results of the statistical treatment showed that there were differences in the mean values of the results obtained between the 13- and 14-year-olds, so we rejected the second hypothesis aswell (H02). All of the hypothesis from the third to the eight (H03-8) were accepted because they related to each test separately and did not indicate statistically significat differences by accepting all hypothesis.
The normatives proved to be new and more demanding comared with older research. Especially in the test of soccer motor skills, progress can be seen in the work with youngsters, which suggests that the working conditions and knowedge of the coaches are improving.
