İntroduction:The aim of this study is to compare some anthropometric measurements and dynamic balance parameters of volleyball and basketball players between the ages of 15-17. Materials and method:12 male basketball and 12 male volleyball players participated in the study. Skinfold device (measurement of subcutaneous fat) and anthropometric measurement set (measurement of diameter and circumference) were used for anthropometric measurements in the study. Prokin PK200 WL Dynamic Balance Measurement System was used for dynamic balance measurement. Shapiro wilk test was used for normality analysis. Independent T test and Pearson correlation test were used to compare normally distributed variables. Mann Whitney u test was used to compare independent paired groups that did not show normal distribution.
