dc.description.abstractObjective Determine how lower limb neuromuscular control changes over the course of a competitive soccer season. Design Repeated measures. Setting Academy soccer club. Participants 43 male youth soccer players (age 13.1 ± 2.2 yr; height 160.1 ± 15.7 cm; body mass 49.4 ± 14.3 kg; maturity offset 0.2 ± 1.9 yr). Main outcome measures Pre-, mid- and end of season assessments of peak landing forces during single leg 75% horizontal hop and stick (75%HOP) and a single leg countermovement jump (SLCMJ), single leg hop for distance (SLHD), knee valgus during the tuck jump assessment (TJA) and inter-limb symmetries. Results Hop distance increased significantly. Absolute peak landing forces in the left leg during the SLCMJ and 75%HOP increased significantly, with significant increases also present in the same leg for SLCMJ relative peak landing force. TJA knee valgus score was reduced in the right leg, but remained at a ‘moderate’ level in the left knee. Conclusion Neuromuscular control, as evidenced by increased absolute and relative peak landing forces, appears to reduce over the course of a competitive season. Young soccer players should engage in neuromuscular training throughout the season to offset any decrements in neuromuscular control and to facilitate appropriate landing strategies.en_US
