The current world seeks to supply the most of the fruits of human knowledge and tries hard to search for the most important scientific facts, programs, means and advanced devices in various fields, including the sports field, and among these means is the use of various and advanced training devices and programs for the purpose of achieving the desired goal, which is to reach the desired level, the basketball game is one of the sports that need high technology in training according to scientifically studied principles because it is one of the games that relate to the abundance of its variables, composition and speed of change, all of which require a technical and high training depth and the players ’possession of different physical characteristics mixed in physical and skill performance. The study aims to :
- Preparing suggested exercises in the opposite hierarchical training method.
- Identify the effect of the opposite hierarchical training course to develop explosive power, characterized by speed, and some functional variables for basketball players.
The researchers used the experimental approach with equal control and experimental groups with a cardiac and post-test, the sample of the research was the basketball youth, who numbered 12, and prepared exercises were applied using the hierarchical opposite training, as the curriculum lasted for (8) weeks and at (3) training units per week. The data were processed statistically and the researchers concluded the following. It was found that the use of the opposite hierarchical training method effectively contributed to the development of explosive power, characterized by speed, and some functional variables for basketball players.
