Data measured in the U15–U19 age groups at the football academy were analyzed during the research (N = 70). These data comprised Body Mass, Height, YYIR1, 30 m running, FMS, and SLJ, Locomotor parameters using the 6-week averages of Catapult OptimEye S5, mechanical performance parameters. The players did well in the motoric tests: YYIR1 (M = 2155, SD = 311), 30 m (M = 4.34, SD = 0.26), and SLJ (M = 2.28, SD = 0.18), and the different age groups underwent dynamic improvement. The young soccer players ran 19,552m players ran 568, 298, and 97 m in the moderate-, high-, and sprint-intensity zones. The athletes’ maximum speed was M = 26.72 km/h (SD = 1.74). The differences between the age groups were justified statistically in each case.
