dc.description.abstractChange of direction speed (CODS) is just one of a number of aspects influencing sporting performance in games-based athletes. Although such a study has importance to strength and conditioning coaches in various sports in the method of application to conditioning programming, the performance of agility and CODS has had minimal research despite the importance of these movements in all athletes. The study aimed to investigate whether CODS had a relationship to strength and power determinants. Seven participants (19.5 years ± 0.9) from one of Cardiff Metropolitan University British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues voluntarily took part in the study. All participants completed three consecutive weeks of testing consisting of strength, power and CODS. These weeks comprised of a unilateral and bilateral 1 repetition max (1RM) leg press, unilateral and bilateral vertical jump and an L-run CODS test consisting of three sets of right-cut and three sets of left-cut runs. The main conclusions from this study show that performance measures of bilateral strength and power are strongly related to each other (r=.864, p<0.05, r2= .679), signifying that strength and power are highly dependent on one another. Relationships between unilateral CODS and unilateral power have no significance (p>0.05). Whereas the only significance in all CODS tests and leg press were between the bilateral leg press and right-cut CODS. With little significance between the majority of variables it can be concluded that this study is not a valid indicator of relationships between CODS, strength and power. This dissertation recommends that additional research is done into the relationships between CODS, strength and power to further the knowledge in this field.en_US
