Video analysis of the whole match using a picture of the entire pitch was utilised. Kinematics of play differed. Juniors played similar to Olympic players but less intense comparing to senior players. They covered shorter distance, at lower mean velocity. Defenders covered shorter distance with the lowest mean velocity.
