Sažetak

Well developed proprioceptive abilities are the
essential aspects of injury prevention and rehabilitation in
many sports including alpine skiing. In our study we
hypothesized that the field balance tests might be the
factor that influences skier performance. The aim,
therefore, was to determine which of the balance tests
correlates most closely with skiing performance. The
participants were 20 national alpine ski instructor
candidates. The study design encompassed 3 simple
laboratory balance tests (lateral and front-back tilts tests
on the balance board, and hanging board balance test), 2
field balance tests (inner ski jump test and one leg carving
test) and 3 official ski elements from Croatian Ski School
(short slalom, giant slalom and off piste curves) that
require high-level skiing skills. All elements were
evaluated by three experienced independent judges.
Multiple regression analysis singled out the inner ski jump
balance test as the most important prediction factor for
alpine skiing performance. We concluded that skiing
coaches might find it useful to prescribe more field and
specific balance training exercises to high level skiers,
especially those which include inner ski jumps.
