Abstract

Our paper aims to compare the speed, agility and strength between female handball players and sedentary. The study comprised 48 healthy subjects with mean age 12,58±0,49 years; they were tested on anthropometrics (height, weight and arm span) and physical fitness (505 agility test, 10x5m shuttle run, 30m speed, standing long jump and Sargeant Jump Test). The results obtained by anthropometrics relieved significant mean differences on height (0.04±0.17m, p<0.05) and arm span (10.79±2.19cm, p<0.05) and no differences for weight (2.91±2.24 kg, p>0.05). Physical fitness indicate mean significant differences on 10x5 m shuttle run (3.87±0.61 s, p<0.05), 30 m speed (0.65±0.11 s, p<0.05), standing long jump (0.30±0.04 m, p<0.05), Sargeant Test (6.58±1.32cm, p<0.05) and no significant differences for 505 agility test (0.15±0.10 s, p>0.05). We notice that handball required subjects with good high and arm span and training experience influencing the results on physical fitness comparative with contra part subjects.
