Abstract Resume

Background: Injuries have negative consequences on the physical, psychological and socio economic levels being important to invest in preventing. So we evaluate the effect of the FIFA
11+ program on improvement of performance and injuries reduction on young soccer players.

Methods: There were taken 20 soccer players from the soccer team Meninos da Vila divided by randomization in 2 groups: CG (control) e IG (intervention). FIFA 11+ injury prevention
program was conducted with the IG for 12 weeks before the training sessions, twice a week while the CG did the conventional warm up instructed by the team's coach. The performance was evaluated by the
tests: side stabilization, single leg balance and isokinetic evaluation  all done before and after the 12 weeks.

Results: In the end of the research 8 players stayed, 2 from GC and 6 from GI. Statistical analysis was done using SPSS 22. Where it was found a significant result in injuries rate
with a reduction of  100%, p <0.05, however, there was no improvement in performance with the FIFA 11+ all tests p> 0.05.

Conclusions:Through the evaluation of the results we can conclude that the program was effective in reducing injuries but not improved the performance of the players.
