A survey was conducted on a sample of 50 football players aged from 17 to 30 aiming to establish quantitative transformation changes in tests of assessing basic motoric abilities and agility when influenced by specially designed functional training with top football players in different game positions in the team. In order to meet the research aims, six tests for assessing basic motoric abilities were applied as follows: 30-meter running, Lifting the tors in 30 seconds, Push-ups to full body-workout, Squat jump (SJ), Counter Movement jump (CMJ), and Counter-movement jump with arm swing (CMJA). The experimental program was applied within six work weeks with four trainings each week. The trainings were applied by a circular method of work, and the respondents were arranged into sets of groups of two players. The research results indicate that the six-week experimental training program of a functional training has a positive influence on improving the average results in all of the six tests. On the base of the numeric values of the arithmetic means and the percentage differences, there can be concluded that, within the six-week period, the whole sample of respondents has gained improvement with the tests: Lifting the tors, Push-ups to full body-workout, Squat Jump, Counter Movement Jump, Counter Movement Jump with Arm Swing.
