Abstract:

This study aimed to assess the physical and physiological capacities of elite’s Brazzaville football federation referees according to their competitive status. Twenty-five referees were grouped on field referee (n = 12) and assistant referee (n = 13). The physical and physiological capacities were measured using repeated sprint ability (RSA) test, split test (75/ 25), the linear straight sprinting tests and the Yo-Yo intermittent recovery level 1 test (YYIR1). The result showed that, assistant referee significantly fasters in the 75/25 split test (p<0.05; p<0.01; p<0.001) than field referee. In addition, assistant referee covers significantly (p<0.01) less distance on the YYIR1 test than field referee and shows significantly (p<0.01) lower VO2max in the assistant referee group. FIFA and National female’s assistant referee covers significantly (p<0.01) less distance on the YYIR1 test than required. Our results suggested the need for specific training programs focused on maintaining the ability to repeat sprints, resistance, change of direction, acceleration and aerobic capacity in Congolese top level referees.
