The concept of balance is of sizable significance in various sports, predominantly wrestling, that demand effort and close contact. Any struggle in keeping the balance because of the movements requires high concentration through competitions and may increase injury jeopardy. This study examines the association between Functional Movement Screening Test Scores and static balance performance scores of elite young female wrestlers. Nineteen elite female wrestlers with an average age of 22.94 ± 2.67 years, body weight 61.63 ± 7.25 kg, height 165.37 ± 5.17 cm, and BMI 22.46 ± 1.60kg / m2 engaged in the investigation. Functional Movement Screen Test ™ (FMST™) battery has been employed to determine the participants' functional movements, while Tec nobody Perkin 200 Bergamo/Italy has been utilized to define the fundamental postural stability index values. All of the static balance determinations have been assessed as standing Double-Leg Eyes Open (DLEO), Eyes Open Single-Leg Dominant Non-Dominant (EOSL-DM and EOSL-ND). Considering higher stability index values mean lower stability, the members were negatively correlated between non-dominant leg static balance and HS. SM. and TSPU, and between dominant leg static balance and HS. SM. and TSPU. Besides, it was discovered that there was a negative relationship between non-dominant leg static balance, dominant leg static balance, as well as double leg static balance and the FMST™ scores of the participants.
