The purpose of the present study was to determination of the circumferential measurement of some values in determining role of anaerobic performance and strength values in junior female basketball Turkish national team players. A total of 14 basketball players ( X age: 18.78±0.41year) from National Team of Turkey participated in this study voluntarily. Subjects’ height, body weight, body mass index and body fat percentage were determined. Body fat percentage was determined by Yuhasz formula. Vertical jump was used for determination of anaerobic performance (AP) and isometric dynamometer was used for the determination of knee (KS), back strength (BS). Circumferential measurement were used for the determination of thigh girth (TG), calf girth (CG) and circumferential measurement were used for the determination of leg volume (LV), thigh volume (TV) and calf volume (CV) by Frustum Method. According to the results of Stepwise Multiple Regression Analyses, AP were significantly correlated with LV, TV, CV, TG and CG (R=0.73, p=.005). LV, TV, CV, TG and CG predicted %54,4 of the AP. However KS were significantly correlated with LV, TV, CV, TG and CG (R=0.49, p=.005). LV, TV, CV, TG and CG predicted %24.9 of the KS and also BS were significantly correlated with LV, TV, CV, TG and CG (R=0.81, p=.005). LV, TV, CV, TG and CG predicted %67.1 of the BS. As a conclusion, the results of the present study indicated that LV, TV, CV, TG and CG were important factors in determining AP, KS and BS.
