Aim: The objective of this study is to observe and verify the effect of dehydration in relation to the performance of physical abilities of endurance and vertical elasticity among high-level basketball players and compare them to the various studies that have been carried out so far and provide adequate recommendations for a dual objective, to achieve performance and preserve the athlete's health.

Methods: This study followed a quantitative descriptive research design. We performed tests and re-tests of vertical elasticity through the Squat Jump (SJ) test for the same group being normally hydrated and being dehydrated (on an empty stomach). Then, we followed up with the ½ cooper tests and re-tests for endurance evaluation for the same group being normally hydrated and being dehydrated (fasting). Comparison between the different tests during the three periods of the season.

Results: For the first set of results related to the Squat Jump throughout the three periods, we recorded a slight difference but statistically significant between the tests for the two states of hydration. The second sets of results related to the half Cooper were even more confirming and endorsing the first set of results. During the three We recorded statistically significant difference the two states of hydrations, with P value <0.001.

Conclusion: Through this study, we observed the effect of dehydration on specific physical abilities in our basketball players. It has been found that dehydration negatively affects the development of their physical abilities. This leads to the implementation of individualization of hydration strategies.
