3 Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of creatine supplementation on sprint and skill performance in young soccer players. Seventeen young soccer players (mean age: 17.18 ± 1.37 y, mean high: 169.6 ± 6.17 cm and mean weight: 61.67 ± 1.37 kg) participated in this study. Subjects were assigned to either a creatine (5 g of Cr, 4 times per day for 7 days) or a placebo group (same dosage of a glucose polymer) using a double-blind research design. Subjects performed a repeated…

Changes of physiological demands and skill performance of soccer players following creatine supplementation
Results showed that CrS had significant effect on sprint performance, dribbling, agility with and without ball, and heart rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased after a week CrS.
Effect of creatine supplementation on physiological demands and skill performance of futsal players
Although CrS had no effect on skill performance, it improves physiological demands in futsal players, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreases after a week CrS.
Effect of low dose, short-term creatine supplementation on muscle power output in elite youth soccer players
There is substantial evidence to indicate that a low-dose, short-term oral Cr supplementation beneficially affected muscle power output in elite youth soccer players.
Creatine Supplementation: Practical Strategies and Considerations for Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed martial arts (MMA) is an intermittent sport that is physically and cognitively demanding. Nutritional strategies to support training, competition, and weightcutting are important to optimize
Objectives. This review article aimed to summarize the current state of understanding on creatine supplementation for soccer players. In other words, it investigated the beneficial (and potentially
Nutritional Supplements Use and Soccer Players’ Performance: A Review of the Literature
The current usage of various nutrition supplements among soccer players has resulted in different consequences. The literature showed the effect of certain nutrition supplements intake on players’
Safety of Creatine Supplementation in Active Adolescents and Youth: A Brief Review
The purpose of this review was to highlight the limited number of studies available in adolescent populations and systematically discuss the topic of safety of creatine supplementation in a younger population.
An Update on Effects of Creatine Supplementation on Performance: A Review
A traditional loading and maintenance supplementation protocol is advised as contemporary research studies are still to unravel the benefits of alternative approaches and little scientific evidence exists showing any unfavourable effects on individuals who are free from illness and disease.
Creatine Supplementation in Children and Adolescents
The purpose of this article is to summarize the rationale, prevalence of use, performance benefits, clinical applications, and safety of creatine use in children and adolescents.

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of acute creatine-monohydrate supplementation on soccer-specific performance in young soccer players. Twenty young male soccer players (16.6 +/-
Acute creatine supplementation and performance during a field test simulating match play in elite female soccer players.
In conclusion, acute Cr supplementation improved performance of some repeated sprint and agility tasks simulating soccer match play, despite an increase in BM.
Creatine supplementation and sprint performance in soccer players.
In conclusion, acute Cr supplementation favorably affected repeated sprint performance and limited the decay in jumping ability after the IET in highly trained soccer players.
Creatine supplementation improves sprint performance in male sprinters
The improved sprint performance suggests an increased availability of energy substrate for performing work, possibly as a result of increased skeletal muscle creatine phosphate (PCr).
Effect of oral creatine supplementation on single-effort sprint performance in elite swimmers.
This study does not support the hypothesis that creatine supplementation enhances single-effort sprint ability of elite swimmers, and results revealed no significant differences between the group means for sprint times or between 10-s maximal leg ergometry power and work.
The Effects of Low-Dose Creatine Supplementation Versus Creatine Loading in Collegiate Football Players.
The data suggest that creatine monohydrate in any amount does not have any beneficial ergogenic effects in highly trained collegiate football players, however, a proper resistance training stimulus for 10 weeks can increase strength and fat-free mass in highlytrained athletes.
Effect of Creatine Supplementation on Intermittent Sprint Running Performance in Highly Trained Athletes
It was concluded that no ergogenic effect on single or repeated 40-m sprint times with varying rest periods was observed in highly trained athletes.

It is demonstrated that short-term high dose oral creatine supplementation has an ergogenic effect on anaerobic capacity of elite wrestlers.
Creatine supplementation and swimming performance.
Although ineffective in women, CR supplementation apparently enables men to maintain a faster mean overall swimming velocity during repeated swims each lasting about 30 s; however, CR was not effective for men in repeated SwimSmart sets eachlasting about 10 - 15 s.
Effect of creatine loading on long-term sprint exercise performance and metabolism.
The results of this study indicate that Cr ingestion (20 g.day-1 x 5 d) improved exercise performance during 80 min of repeated-sprint exercise, possibly due to an increased TCr store and improved PCr replenishment rate.
