The purpose of this study was to evaluate the validity of between Wingate and RAST tests in youth basketball players. The subjects were 45 youth and health basketball players that participated in the study. The characteristics of subjects were consist of: training experience of the subjects equal with 5.3 ± 0.3 years, age of they were 16.46 ± 0.37 years old, body weight equal with 72.02 ± 2.5 and BMI equal with 21.62 ± 0.54. Blood samples were drawn upon arrival to the laboratory, immediately after doing of the Wingate test and after end of the RAST test, during passive recovery. Statistical significance was accepted at p 0.05.Results of the study were shown that between of Wingate and RAST tests in amount of peak power were significant relationship(r = 0.901; p = 0.00). Also, results of the study indicated significant relationship in amounts of average power between both tests (r = 0.957; p = 0.00) In addition, between Wingate and RAST tests in average power per. kg .W -1statistically were significant relationship (r = 0.543; p = 0.00). In regarding of validity in blood indexes between both tests, can insinuate to amounts of pH that statistically were significant relationship between the tests (r = 0.562; p = 0.029). Also, in this study indicated significant relationship between amounts of PCO2 in venous blood (r = 0.644; p = 0.00) In regarding of achieve results can express that between of the Wingate and the RAST tests only in average power and peak power in youth elite basketball players were a significant relationship. So, it conflict to this claim that “the RAST test can be predict drop power and fatigue indexes in elite basketball players” similar to Wingate test. Nevertheless, it recommended to basketball coaches to apply the RAST test only in direction of evaluation for average and peak powers in basketball players.
