The aim of this study was to identify the effects of 24 weeks strength training (ST) program on sprint, jump, agility, throwing and leg extension i n college woman football players to fulfill it, who have little experience in competition. 1 repetition maximum (1RM) test was used for the evaluation of maximum muscle strength of the lower a body, and the target value ( Tv) was calculated from 1 R M test compared w ith the actual value (Av). 8 college woman football players had participated in this study (age: 19.8 ± 0.4 years, body height: 158.2 ± 5.0cm, body mass: 54.4 ± 5.9kg). College woman football players followed a ST program twice a week for 24 weeks. ST program was included in 2-3 sets of 8-15 repetitions with the load 55-80% 1RM. Maximum strength ([1RM] Leg Press (LP), Inclination Leg Press (ILP)), running speed (10m-sprint), agility ability (505 agility test), Throwing (TH), jump ability (counter movement jump ; CMJ, standing broad jump ; SBJ) were measured at the beginning week (Pre), 12week (Mid), and 24 week (Post). Mid and Post of the test, TH, CMJ, SBJ and SU were higher (p< 0.05) than for the Pre. In addition, 1RM test LP and ILP of Post were higher (p<0.05) than Mid test. No significant differences were observed from the running speed and agility ability. The results of this study suggested that 24 weeks ST program could improve on dynamic movement such as jump ability rather than sprint and agility abilities. In conclusion, 24 weeks ST program college woman football players could be useful as the development of their physical abilities. Especially, it is effective for college woman football players to fulfill it, who have little experience in competition.
