Background. To examine the relationships between soccer players static, dynamic postural control (PC) and Functional movement screen (FMS) scores and 3 different change of direction (COD) running. Seventeen male soccer players aged 18-30 and playing soccer in the regional amateur league participated in the study. Methods. PC measurements were performed as static and dynamic (dynamic measurements at 40-30-20 difficulty levels). The Deep Squat (Ds), hurdle step (Hs), in-line lunges (I-LL), trunk stability (Ts) and rotary stability (Rs) tests were used in the FMS measurements, and T-Running, Illinois running and 505-running measurements were used in the COD measurements of the athletes. The significance levels between the data were accepted as P ≤ 0.05, and correlation analysis was used for statistical analysis. Results. Significant relationships were found between PC and FMS scores (P ≤ 0.05). However, the relationships between PC and COD skills have controversial results. Among the FMS scores, significant relationships were found between Hs-left and T-run (r = -0.049), I-LL-left and Illinois-run (r = -0.053), while no statistically significant correlations were found between other FMS scores and COD. Conclusion. According to the results of this research; while athletes with good PC scores had higher FMS scores, complex movement tests Hs and I-LL scores obtained from FMS measurements revealed that the athletes had results on their COD performance.
