MARTIN MARTINEZ, Inmaculada et al. Effects of a small sided games program on rate of perceived exertion in a sample of teenage girls. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp.89-98. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim of this study was to analyse the effects of a small sided games program, over a period of eight weeks, on rate of perceived exertion. The participants in the study were 42 girls from Priego of Córdoba (Córdoba, Spain), between 15 and 16 years of age, and physically inactive. The research was based on a quasi-experimental design with two randomised groups, control and experimental. The instruments used to evaluate were the Borg Rate of Perceived Exertion Scale, heart rate monitors and the Game Perfomance Assessment Instrument (GPAI). Results showed a significant decrease in perceived exertion and increases in participation and effectiveness in the game, but without differences in working heart rates. These results suggest that learning and adapting to the decision-making process could be the cause of these events.
