The objective of this study was to determine the relationship among an endurance test, a movement screen score, and the distance covered in the 60-30 test. Prior to physical assessment, players (n = 15) performed a movement screening assessment at a slow pace and at full speed and were scored on a 0-5 Likert scale. The 60-30 test consisted of walking, jogging, shuttling, running, and sprinting a total of 90 yds. The initial bout was performed twice in 60 secs, followed by a 30-sec rest. Each successive bout was performed one sec faster followed by the same rest interval with total distance calculated for the number of bouts completed. A One-way ANOVA indicated no significant difference among playing positions. Furthermore, the correlation between 60-30 distance and time for a mile run was nonsignificant. The 60-30 test is more specific to soccer play than to continuous endurance tasks.
