Introduction. — This study investigated the functional asymmetries in the lower limbs of young soccer players using the countermovement jump (CMJ). Synthesis of the facts. — Fifteen young soccer players were assessed on the CMJ using two unilateral dynamometric force platforms equipped with software for the analysis of the movement. Conclusion. — The results indicate that the effects of functional asymmetries are important enough to require young soccer players to undergo a preventative screening before starting a sporting regime.
