Context: For a successful performance, influence of certain biomechanical factors enhances learning and mechanical effectiveness of performance in football. For a player, dynamic strength ability gives acceleration to the body which affects explosive strength and physical abilities. Aims: The aim of the study was to find out the relationship between explosive strength and agility among college level footballers. Settings and Design: A pilot study was conducted among college level football players from different colleges of Dakshin Kannad. Materials and Methods: Twenty male college level football players (21.25 ± 2.0 years) participated in this study, wherein each participant took part in two kinds of testing sessions: countermovement jump and t-test. Explosive strength was assessed using My Jump application, and agility was assessed using t-test. Statistical Analysis Used: Karl Pearson correlation coefficient test was used for analysis. Results: There was a significant moderate negative correlation between explosive strength and agility among college level football players (r = −0.536 and P = 0.015) and was statistically significant. Conclusions: The present study concluded that there was a moderate negative correlation between explosive strength and agility among college level football players. Greater the explosive strength, lower is the time taken to perform t-test.
