Objectives: This study aims to evaluate the effects of the 8-week badminton basic training program on the biomotor characteristics of 10-12 age group girls with the Eurofit test battery. Methods: The research was carried out on female students between the ages of 10 and 12 who are in the badminton training program within the Youth and Sports Provincial Directorate in Konya. A total of 33 female students, consisting of the badminton training group (experiment; n=18) and the control group (n=15), who did not participate in any sports training program during the study, participated in the study. The duration of the study was completed by planning as 8 weeks. The badminton basic training program was applied to the application group 3 days a week for 60 minutes. Tests and measurements were carried out with the Eurofit Test Battery to evaluate the biomotor characteristics of the participants before and after the badminton training. The data obtained were analyzed using the SPSS 24.0 program. The statistical significance level was accepted as p<0.05.
Results: As a result of the study, between the pre-test and post-test mean values of the application group participants; there was a statistically significant difference (p<0.05) in favor of the application group in the test parameters of height, flamingo balance, plate tapping, sit-reach, standing long jump, vertical jump, handgrip, bent arm hanging and 10*5 m agility test parameters. Also, it was determined that there was a statistically significant difference (p<0.05) in the flamingo balance, plate tapping, sit-reach, and bent arm hanging parameters between the post-test mean values of the application and control groups.
Conclusion: As a result, it can be said that the badminton basic education program applied for 8 weeks has positive effects on the biomotor characteristics of girls aged 10-12.
