This study aims to examine the relation between isokinetic muscular strength, and balance and anaerobic power parameters in wrestlers aged 14-15. 23 wrestlers from Ordu province volunteered to be involved in this study (age=14.78±0.42 age, body weight=62.12±15.31 kg, height=167.39±8.31 cm). The athletes body weights were measured with a body composition analyzer, and their heights were measured with the use of a stadiometer. Isokinetic strength measurements were done with an isokinetic dynamometer, anaerobic power and capacity were measured with a cycle ergometer, and balance was measured with an isokinetic balance device. The analysis of the data gathered in this study was conducted with a statistical package program. The normality distribution of the data was ensured with the Shapiro Wilk test, the relation between dependent and independent variables determined to have a normal distribution were analyzed with the Pearson correlation (r) analysis, and the significance value was determined to be p<0.05. While no significant correlation could be identified between the athletes isokinetic strength levels and their static balance levels with the eyes open and shut (p>0.05), a highly significant correlation could be observed between dynamic balance values and isokinetic strength values (p<0.001). Additionally, while a positive significant relation could be detected between isokinetic right-hand side 60°/s strength values and anaerobic power and capacity values (p<0.05) and right-hand side 120°/s and 180°/s strength values and anaerobic power, no significant correlation could be detected with anaerobic capacity and 120°/s and 180°/s strength values (p>0.05). No significant correlation could be found between left-hand side 60°/s, 120°/s and 180°/s strength values and anaerobic power and capacity values (p>0.05). Some significant correlations could be identified between isokinetic strength levels and some balance and anaerobic power parameters in wrestlers aged 14-15.
