Abstract: 
The study aimed at recognizing the effect of a proposed training program using plyometri training on some of the physical and physiological abilities amongst male soccer team in The Arab American University. In order to achieve so, a sample of (30) players was taken into study and the players were divided into two equal groups; (15) players as a control group, and (15) players as an experimental group. The experimental group undertook the suggested Plyometric program, whereas the control group undertook the traditional program. Tests were performed before and after applying the program that took (8) weeks, (3) training units were taking place weekly. Measurements were also taken before and after to measure the impact of the Plyometric trainings, the two groups undertook physical and physiological tests such as; vertical jumping, sprint 30-meters, pushing the medical ball, push-up, sit-up and the anaerobic power and capacity a. After gathering data, (SPSS) program was used to analyze them. The results of the study showed that, for the experimental group; there were statistically significant differences between pre and post tests for the post tests in the variables (vertical jump (24.51%), pushing the medical ball (5.09%), and anaerobic power (37.59%)), and no significant differences were found for the other variables (push-up(1.80%), sit-up(1.80%),speed(-1.80) and anaerobic capacity(2.06%)). Also, the results revealed that, for the control group; there were no statistically significant differences between pre and post tests in all of physical and physiological variables. Finally, the results indicated that there were statistically significant differences between experimental and control group for the experimental group in the variables (vertical jump, pushing the medical ball, and anaerobic power), and no significant differences were found for the other variables (push-up, sit-up and anaerobic capacity). Based on the study findings, the researcher gave some recommendations where the most important was to emphasize the use of the general and the specific Plyometric trainings by the trainers in all the team sports and for all age categories due to their important and positive role in developing and enhancing some physical and physiological abilities.
