Purpose: We examined correlations betweenFunctional Movement Screen (FMS) scores and fitness test results in male and female junior basketball players.Methods: Thirty nine male and female players (age 14-17 y) undertook a battery of fitness tests including the 20m-sprint, step-in vertical jump, agility,sit and reach, line drill test and the Yo-Yo intermittent recovery level 1 test. Five d later, the seven standard FMS tests (squat, hurdle step, in-line lunge,shoulder mobility, straight-leg raise, push up, and rotary stability) were performed involving one demonstration then two formal trials. The 'best' trial wasscored on a scale of 0-3 with a maximum total of 21. Strength and power testing included a countermovement jump (CMJ), a 15 s push up and pull uptest. The total FMS score (FMSsum7) was determined with a single score for each test where the worst score was used with those screens that involveda right and left side component. Correlations were determined between single and total FMS score and each physical performance test for both genderscombined and then separately. The magnitude of correlation was interpreted as: 0-0.1 trivial, 0.1-0.3 small, 0.3-0.5 moderate, and >0.5 large.Results: No substantial correlations were found between FMSsum7 and performance tests for both genders combined. For females, moderatecorrelations were observed between the FMSsum7 and Yo-Yo test (r= 0.39 ± 0.34; correlation coefficient ± 90% confidence limits), and the agilitytest (r= -0.41 ± 0.32). Small to moderate relationships were present between the FMSsum7 and the push up, yo-yo and CMJ tests in the malesubjects, but correlat
