Aim: İn the this study was conducted to determine the effect of 8-week plyometric exercises on anaerobic performance in female handball players. The average age of the participants is 15.8±1.3 years, body weight is 65.7±4.2kg, height is 169±1.9cm and our practice consists of 16 active licensed handball players. Method: In our current study, plyometric exercises were applied to the participants 2 days a week on different days for 8 weeks. Physical measurement tests, such as height, body weight, body mass index, vertical jump, standing long jump, 30 meters sprint, back and leg strenght were given to the athletes at different times in the training program as pre-test and post-test. The findings obtained from the participants were analyzed with the SPSS 24 statistical package program. It was determined that the results showed normal distribution (2.0>x>-2.0) and the paired sample t test, which is one of the parametric tests, was used. Findings: At the end of the research; In female handball players, it was found that there was a p<0.05 difference in favor of the post-test in body weight, 30 meters sprint and vertical jump tests, and there was a p>0.05 variation in body mass index and standing long jump measurements. Conclusion: It was found that plyometric training methods had a positive effect on the average of anaerobic performance in active licensed female athletes, and there was a p<0.05 difference in body weight, 30 meters speed, and vertical jump performances. back and leg strenght.
