Background: In sports involving frequent twisting and jumping activities, proprioception and balance have fundamental roles in athletes’ performance and functional ability of the non-athletic persons, too. Then, due to importance of proprioception for balance, postural control, and accuracy of motions the aim of this study was to compare the knee joint proprioception between soccer and volleyball players and non-athletic men. Methods: Ninety healthy male individuals were divided into three groups; including soccer players (mean ±SD: Age 21.9±2.0 yrs., Height 177.5±4.2 Cm, Weight 82.4±9.6 Kg), volleyball players (mean ±SD: Age 22.5±1.9 yrs., Height 187.7±4.2 Cm, Weight 82.4±9.6 Kg) and non-athletes (mean ±SD: Age 22.5±2.4 yrs., Height 175.5±5.0 Cm, Weight 70.9±11.0 Kg) (n=30 for each group). Active (AAR) and passive (PAR) angle reproduction error at an angular velocity of 60˚/s with target angle of 45˚ were measured using Biodex dynamometer. Stroke stand test was utilized to assess participants’ balance. The data were analyzed using ANOVA and Tukey statistical tests (P<0.05). Results: The volleyball players (3.8˚) had less AAR than the soccer players (5.3˚) and non-athletic subjects (4.0˚) significantly (P<0.05). However, there were no statistical differences in PAR between the three groups (P>0.05). The volleyball players (38.0Sec) had better balance comparing to soccer players (32.8Sec) and non-athletes (27.0Sec) significantly (P<0.05).Conclusions: In conclusion, this study indicates that better knee joint proprioception and balance in volleyball players is attributed to repeated jumping motions in this sport. However, it is suggested to benefit jumping exercises in the rehabilitation protocols to improve proprioception and balance of athletes and non-athlete’s persons with knee injuries
