Selection of Talents in Handball: Anthropometric and Performance Analysis

Abstract: Introduction: Anthropometric and physical performance parameters that determine competitive levels in handball need to be carefully studied to identify which of them can bring the optimal contribution when the talents for this sport are selected. Objective: To identify which anthropometric and physical performance variables evaluated in the basic categories (infantile, under-15 and cadet, under-17) have the greatest influence on professional levels attained by male and female handball players throughout their… Show more

“…By contrast, the WP's comparatively high CMJ scores seem to compensate for their significantly lower BH with well-developed vertical jumping ability. Previous studies have collected data from athletes of similar ages, (14 ± 2 years), in which the CMJ testing protocols were comparable (i.e., jumping techniques allowed for swing arms before take-off), and our sample of players jumped on average relatively higher than Spanish U16 national players (7) and elite Belgian cohorts from 2 separate studies (22,23).…”

“…However, to sustain the competitiveness of their national teams, many countries develop original TI programs (1,7,32) where anthropometric (1,17,18,29) and physiological characteristics (1,29), along with technical-tactical skill evaluations (10,15), are used as markers of young players' individual potential for future elite performance. National federations regularly and rigorously select athletes from their age-category pools for continuing centralized training programs (8,15,28,29) and official international championship events (20,22).…”
