A summary of the work is shown below:
The aim of this study was to analyze the association between sprint ability and endurance capacity in soccer referees. Twenty-three Spanish officials participated in this study. Each referee undertook, in this order, a 40 m linear straight sprinting test (40 m Sprint) and the Yoâ€“Yo intermittent recovery level 1 test (YYIR1) interspersed with a 8 min of self-administered rest. The results in the 40 m Sprint test showed that the time spent by referees was 5.56 Â± 0.27 s and achieved a maximum velocity of 31.46 Â± 2.85 kmÂ·hâˆ’1. Furthermore, during the YYIR1 the referees covered 1213.91 Â± 432.26 m. The distance covered at YYIR1 was moderately correlated to the velocity achieved in the 40 m Sprint test (r = âˆ’0.404, p < 0.05). These results suggest that the ability to reach high speeds is a limiting factor in YYIR1 performance.
This work provides useful insights about topics such as: match officials; associations; speed; resistance.
