The aim of this study was to investigate relationship between dynamic balance, vertical jump and core stability in prepubertal amateur gymnasts. Thirty eight children (mean age, 7.94 0.32 years) participated in this study. Dynamic balance of the participants were evaluated at directions of anterior (A), posteromedial (PM) and posterolateral (PL) with Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT). The core stability was evaluated with trunk flexion, side bridge, and trunk extension tests. For vertical jump performance, squat jump height was measured using a contact mat. A significant relationship was found between A (p=0.044), PL (p=0.001), reach directions of the SEBT and trunk flexion. Also, a significant relationship was found between both trunk flexion (p=0.032) and trunk extension (p=0.048) and squat jump height. As a result, it was shown that core stability was partially associated with dynamic balance and vertical jump height.
