This study attempted to explore the effect of uphill training among football players to improve sprinting speed, acceleration and stride rate among under. Random sampling technique was used to select 24 female and male athletes aged 18 to 19 years nd 50 were selected. The subjects (these are the experimental groups) under this study took part in a followed exercise program performed in uphill training for cosequative eight weeks. frequency of 3 days per week for 2 months and the duration was 50 minutes per session. The physical fitness variables selected for the study were: speed, acceleration and stride rate. The results indicated that there were significantly improvements in performance on selected physical fitness variables due to the effects of uphill training with active rest (p ˂ 0.05). This study confirmed that uphill training with active rest was significant to improve the speed, acceleration and stride rate of football plaers. The mean difference (MD) between pre and post tests for: speed was females achieve 0.15m/s and 0.22m/s, males achieve 0.12mls and 0.33m/s both control and experimental groups respectively; acceleration was females achieve 0.06m/s2 and 0.10m/s2 and males achieve 0.05m/s2 and 0.20m/s2 both control and experimental groups respectively and the stride rate was also females 0.06strides/second and 0.56strides/second and male 0.21strides/second and 0.71strides/second of the control and experimental group respectively. The main finding of the study was football players who were exposed to uphill training have discovered positive outcomes towards the speed, acceleration and stride rate. The study also illustrates that stride frequency and speed of participants can be improved as a result of uphill training program.
