The purpose of the study was to ascertain the effect of a 4-week Block Training Programme on selected physical fitness components of 30 young football players. The age of the subjects ranged from 14 to 16 years. Keeping the feasibility criteria in mind the motor fitness components selected were speed (50m sprint), Agility (4x10m shuttle run), Flexibility (standing bobbing test), Strength (standing broad jump) and Endurance (800m run). The analysis of data employing t-test revealed that the 4-week training programme was effective in improving speed, flexibility and endurance. The analysis of data further showed insignificant increase in strength. The difference in the initial and final means in the case of agility was significant showing a considerable decline in the agility performance.
