Purpose: the purpose of this study are to find the relationship between biomechanic values from single leg jump landing test and risk of injury in Thai women soccer players.

Methods: the participants are Thai women soccer players who had been called up to the national team camp. Their ages are between 18 – 35 years. They will perform the single leg jump landing test, and the data will be analyzed.

Results: the knee valgus angle, one of the parameters from the test, is one of factor that has significant statistically (p = 0.037) for the injury risk. This could be a benefit for the team to screen the players who will be prone to injury, to receive the additional training to reduce the risk.

Conclusion: Single leg jump landing test has role in evaluate the injury risk for Thai women soccer players.
