BAYON, P.; VAQUERA, A.; GARCIA-TORMO, J.V.  and  DEHESA, R.. Training effects in repeated sprint ability (RSA) in basketball referees. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp.163-168. ISSN 1989-5879.

Most studies in basketball have focused on the study of the players and just a few have focused on the study of basketball referees. The ability to repeat sprints (RSA) is one of the key components in physical performance in basketball. Therefore, the aim of this study is to analyze the RSA and the anthropometric values in basketball referees after a period of 5 weeks of specific training. 24 referees were evaluated divided into Group Control (GC) and Experimental Group (GE). An anthropometric determination (Size, Weight, Body fat %, and BMI) and a 7x20m RSA test were performed twice, before and after of 5 specific training weeks (PRE and POST). Small differences in the weight of the referees in PRE and POST in both groups were found but also there are some differences in body fat %, decreasing in 2.5% the GC and in 5.29% the GE. The improvements in RSA are 0.67% for GC and 5.10% for the GE. In conclusion, the basketball referees improvements in RSA after a specific training clearly improves their physical condition and their anthropometric values.
