Abstract

INTRODUCTION: In soccer there are many incidences of injuries due to either bad technique or shear force at a joint and to great extend of repeating kicks which causes fatigue occurrences .In reality, junior players in soccer could be exposed to many and various kicking positioning in which a joint can be in a situation were risk factors greatly pronounced and such circumstances can be hazardous. Predicting and identifying those risk factors in early stage (Backous et al,1988) may be useful for both the young athlete and the coach to modify based on biomechanical analysis of their kicking techniques, especially after fatigue prevailed.
