Accurate assessment of the relationships between TL, performance enhancement, and injury would allow more optimal

Australian football is a dynamic team sport that requires players to display high levels of physical fitness in aerobic capacity, speed, agility, power, and strength. 1 – 3 The Australian Football League’s (AFL) participation pathway consists of 2 streams: (1) the local participation pathway and

Missouri agility test (SEMO). Subjects were asked to report a VAS for confidence following each task to assess perceived confidence in their ankle to perform the task. Subjects were asked the following question: “How confident were you in your ankle in completing that task?” with “no confidence at all” and

that COD running reduced distance covered, increased exercise intensity, and induced an increase in anaerobic metabolism. This may be due to a higher glycolytic contribution, postexercise blood lactate, and perceived physiologic ratings of exertion. 3 – 5 Agility is an important quality in successful

influence of ankle braces during a variety of functional tests such as the vertical jump, agility drills, and speed tests. These studies usually evaluate the effect of the brace only on performance measures such as the height, distance, or speed for these tests, respectively. Therefore, when authors
