The aim of this study; the effect of different jump and speed training protocols applied to players on the shooting speed and accuracy performance. In this research, 14 healthy male soccer players from Serinhisar soccer team playing in Denizli Super Amateur League participated voluntarily. Soccer players participated in different two days practices. On the first day, training was jump-based, while on the second day the training was speed-based. The practices were done with three days break. The soccer player shoot two different shoots repeatedly in a 20-minute workout, and the average of his shoot speeds was recorded with the radar gun. In the evaluation of the accuracy performance, whether the ball reached the goal or not taken as a criterion while the goalkeeper was placed in the goal. Descriptive analyses of soccer players' shooting speeds and accuracy performances were calculated with mean and standard deviation values. Since taken parametric assumptions, it was analysed by t-test. The level of significance was taken as p<0.05. On the first and second day measurements, there was a statistically significant difference in the comparison between the shoot speeds, accuracy performance and lactate values (p<0.05). In the study, while there is a 20% accuracy rate in the shoot accuracy in the speed-based training, there is a 60% accuracy rate in the training jump-based training. Shooting speed was higher in speed-based training than jump-based training. The lactate values were higher in speed-based training than jump-based training. The results of this study; it was found that the speed-based training was more effective than the jump-based training in the shooting speed, but it was found to be less effective in shooting accuracy. This study may help trainers to assess the applicability of different training methods to improve shoot performance, one of the most important factors determining the score on the soccer.
