The aim of this research is to determine differences in explosive strength sprinting for junior football players classified according to different positions in the field: central defenders, side players, midfield players and attackers. The study was conducted on a sample of 149 subjects classified into four groups. Three tests for evaluating the explosive strength sprinting were used, specifically 5m, 10 m and 20 m tests. The results were processed through univariate f analyses and LSD test. It was concluded that the attackers are better at demonstrating the explosive strength sprinting than players in other positions. Central defenders were ranked the lowest in testing. It is likely that specific requirements of the football game in different field positions can affect test results and the speed-strenght abilities in short distances.
