Introducción: Los futbolistas presentan un desarrollo diferenciado en cuanto a parámetros funcionales según su posición en la cancha, sin embargo, no hay estudios al respecto en futbolistas chilenos.

Objetivo: Comparar parámetros funcionales en futbolistas juveniles chilenos según posición.

Método: Estudio transversal, analítico. Participación de 84 futbolistas juveniles chilenos. Se evaluó flexibilidad y estabilidad, agilidad, velocidad y potencia muscular, mediante batería de 6 tests específicos (Functional Movement Screen, Pro Agility, Illinois e Illinois con balón, velocidad a 30m y salto vertical). El análisis estadístico incluyó Kruskal-Wallis y ANOVA (p <0,05).

Resultados: Edad de la muestra 15,781,13 años. Los delanteros realizaron el Pro Agility en menos tiempo que porteros (p = 0,009), defensas (p = 0,047) y mediocampistas (p = 0,022). Los porteros realizaron ambos Illinois en un tiempo mayor que el resto (p = 0,001). En 30 metros planos los delanteros fueron más rápidos que porteros (p = 0,019) y defensas (p = 0,031). La potencia muscular estimada fue mayor en porteros respecto a mediocampistas (p = 0,01).

Discusión: Los delanteros son más ágiles según el Pro Agility que las demás posiciones y más veloces que los porteros y defensas. Los porteros presentaron significativamente menor agilidad en ambos test de Illinois que las otras posiciones, pero mayor potencia que los mediocampistas. La flexibilidad y estabilidad fue similar entre posiciones. Estos resultados pueden ser utilizados por entrenadores para asignar posiciones, selección de jugadores jóvenes y mejorar las habilidades más débiles de forma específica.
