The Purpose of this study was to investigate the sliding and tackle aspect, position, sliding condition, sliding pattern on artificial turf and natural grass, and to provide evidence for performance enhancement in athletics, and injury prevention.
Total 40games of video data analyses were performed and 10 middle school players’game and 10 college players' game on artificial turf and natural grass respectively. We used the modified analyze criteria that used to video analysis of slip events in men's world cup 2006 by Alrhoff et al(2009).
They showed 357 number of sliding on artificial turf(6.7 per hour) and 432 number of sliding on natural grass(8.1 per hour) in total sliding number of 789. There were no significant different between middle school players(16.4 per hour) and college players in sliding(13.6 per hour). Also, they showed 246 number of tackles on artificial turf(4.6 per hour) and 283 number of tackles on natural grass(5.3 per hour) in total sliding number of 529. There were no significant differences in sliding and tackle aspect, position, sliding condition, sliding pattern between artificial turf and natural grass.
There was no significant difference about sliding and tackling between the artificial turf and natural grass. But, the number of sliding and tackling represented more higher on the natural grass. The results of this study, there were some difficult to generalize the effect of artificial turf. Therefore, additional research needs to investigate of neuromuscular responses by forces acting on the player's body actually on the artificial turf.
