Abstract

This study had as its main objective to investigate the difference in training programs carried out in athletes with disabilities practicing 7-a-side football before and after the Covid-19 pandemic. The two sporting seasons taken into consideration concerned the 2018/19 season and the 2020/2021 season. The study was conducted on ten disabled athletes belonging to a football school in Campania, Italy. The comparison between the two sports seasons is given in numerical terms by the statistical comparison of the results of the adapted motor tests concerning aerobic capacity and conditional capacities, which were administered to the athletes at the beginning and at the end of both sports seasons. From this comparison, in both seasons, minor improvements in the 2020/2021 season were found in athletes, between the entry and exit tes ts. It can be said that the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, concerning social distancing and the interruption of sports activities, have played a primary role in the decline in the improvement of athletes with disabilities for 7-a-side football in the 2020/2021 sports season.
