The study aims to investigate whether or not there is an acute effect of dynamic and static core exercises applied to footballer children with 12-14 years of age on their physical performances. The experimental method with pre-test and post-test pattern and control group has been used in the study. A sampling of the study has been created from the athletes between 12-14 years of age and playing in a football team in a private school. A total of 48 students have participated voluntarily as dynamic core group (DCG, n=15), static core group (SCG, n=15) and Control Group (CG, n=15). Static and dynamic core exercises with 30-35 minutes and 3 days have been applied during 10 weeks to the study groups. Pre-test measurements of height, weight, vertical jump, pull-up, standing long jump, flamingo balance, flexibility hand grip strength and plank have been taken from child athletes before exercises. After obtained data has been applied in a computer environment, arithmetic mean (x) and standard deviation (ss) of DCG, SCG and CG groups have been taken and Paired Samples t-test has been applied for the differences between pre-test and post-test. Significance level has been studied in p>0.05 level. According to the findings, static and dynamic core exercises of 10 weeks have exhibited significant differences according to the performances of control group athletes. (p<0.05). In addition to this, it is observed that physical performance values of dynamic core exercises are better when compared with the group performing static core exercises. As a result, a contribution can be provided to development periods of child athletes with core exercise to be applied. Also, the fact that there are dynamic core exercises of movements within exercise program will affect strength developments much more when compared with static movements. It is contemplated that applying dynamic and static exercises in combination will affect their developments much more efficiently.
