Abstract

Functional Movement screening (FMS) is a tool that is able to determine the individual's potential for the possibility of sports injury.The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between functional movement screening scores with Flexibility factors, speed, power and agility in male students in Lorestan province. 370 male students aged 15 to 17 years voluntary participated in this study Spearman correlation coefficient was used to determine the relationship among flexibility, power, speed and agility.
The present study showed that there were significant relation between scoring screen for functional movement and flexibility of the left leg, long jumping, high jumping in 15 year old students there were significant relations between scoring screen for functional movement and flexibility, flexibility of the right leg, flexibility of the left leg, long jumping high in 16 years old students. In addition, in the 17 years old students there were significant relation between scoring screen for functional movement and flexibility of left leg flexibility of the right leg height jumping. In general, there were significant relation between FMS scores and flexibility and power in three groups of students. The probable cause of this connection can be attributed to In- line lunge tests, hurdle step, Active straight-leg-raise and Deep Squat, which are directly related to flexibility and power.
Therefore, in order to improve the FMS scores of students, it is recommended that students be flexible and able to include in their training program.
