Waterpolo is a sport which characteristic is high aerobic endurance. Children are enrolled in the process of training already at the age of 10 and 11.
Studies of some authors show that there are differencies in some of the cardiorespiratory parameters between young athletes enrolled in the process of waterpolo training and those who do not practice sport actively.
The aim of our study was to spot the difference in some of the parameters (absolute oxygen consumption VO2 (ml/min), relative oxygen consumption VO2/kg (ml/min/kg), bodymass index (BMI), percentage of muscles and oxygen consumption per kilogramme of muscle tissue, between two groups of young representative waterpolo selections aged 1988 to 1990 and 1991 do 1993).
By applying the T-test to small indipendent samples on the level of statistic significance α=0.05, we spotted a difference in BMI, while regarding all the other parameters, we didn't notice any significant difference. This shows that the training stimulus leads to identical adaptive changes in cardiorespiratory system and that the spotted difference probably arises from a different degree of biological development.
Key words: waterpolo, oxygen consumption, BMI, young athletes.
