Popis Central nervous system, vestibular apparatus and cerebellum are key components which are necessary for balance. The main aim of this study was to find out if core stability programme could have more beneficial effect on postural stability in the experimental group than in comparing with the control group. Twenty-one participants volunteered for this study. The participants were assigned to the control group (10 boys; mean age=11.9 ± 0.3 years; mean height=1.57 ± 0.08 m; mean body weight=46.21 ± 10.9 kg) and the experimental group (11 boys; mean age=11.5 ± 0.4 years; mean height=1.56 ± 0.06 m; mean body weight=41.6 ± 5.48 kg). The postural stability was measured by balance board where the score was expressed by number from 0 to 100. First of all, it was needed to examine if the control group and the experimental group are homogenous in the question of postural stability which was measured on balance board. It was supposed all participants can be regarded as the same type. That was the null hypothesis. The alternative hypothesis was contrary to the null hypothesis. Subsequently, the independent t-test was used in that case (p=0.70807; the significance level 95%). The groups did not differ significantly in the level of postural stability at the beginning of the study. There was determined a significant difference in participant´s mean score on balance board in experimental group between pre-test and post-test (paired samples t-test; p=0.002856; the significance level 95%). The control group was without any form of core stability programme. A paired sample t-test confirmed no significant difference in the mean score on balance board between pre-test and post-test (p=0.728647; the significance level 95%). The results from this study confirmed that postural stability programme might improve postural stability in a group of young football players.
