Pubescent maturity is an essential element in obtaining physical capacity. Having de described the anthropometric characteristics, such as body structure and results in the physical and functional tests, of a group of football players in relation to their pubescent level, the results showed which tests has a higher predictive level on the physical capacity. Age can predict 54% of the variation of results in 500 m. run and 59% in the 60 m. dash. If pubescent maturity and the measurement of the tricipital skin-fold are also taken into consideration the prediction level goes up to 72% in 500 m. run and 75% in the 60 m. dash.
