Abstract: Movement patterns in intermittent sports is influenced by change of direction speed (CODS) performance (i.e., acceleration and deceleration in short sprints). A crosssectional study was used to examine if CODS (modified pro agility test) and linear sprint (5, 10 and 20 m) correlated with maximal (1RM) unilateral leg strength (unilateral Smith machine squat and unilateral leg press) and unilateral standing balance.
