This study was aimed to investigate relationship among aerobic power, 10 meters and 100 meters sprint running speed, vertical jump and physical properties of male and female adolescents who engaged in regular physical activity. This study consisted of a total of 877 adolescents including 725 male and 142 female. A 12 minutes run for aerobic power test, vertical jump for anaerobic power, 10 meters and 100 meter sprints, body height, body weight, skinfold measurements and body mass index (BMI) assessments were made respectively. Independent t-test analysis was performed for comparison between the male and female in all variables. To determine the relationship variables, the correlation coefficients were calculated. It was determined that 100 meters test was highly correlated than 10 meters speed tests, vertical jump score was more powerful indicator than anaerobic power, and the sum of seven skinfold was also more powerful indicator than BMI in determination of aerobic power in males. Aerobic power showed no significant correlation with body weight, body height, BMI, vertical jump score, anaerobic power and 10 meters sprint in females. The aerobic power increases with increasing the sprint distance. The vertical jump height, anaerobic power, 10 m sprint running speed, 100 m sprint running speed, body weight, BMI and the sum of 7 skinfolds measurement have more assocations of aerobic power in males while 100 m sprint running speed, and the sum of 7 skinfolds measurement were strongly correlated with aerobic power in females.
