Abstract

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a brain disorder experienced by a person, which results in experiencing many disturbances in motor activities. Impaired motor coordination in people with CP is immediately apparent when observed. The coordination ability of players is needed in activities during playing football. Adequate instruments are necessary to measure the special coordination abilities of cerebral palsy (CP) football players. This study aimed to produce an instrument test model to measure the special coordination abilities of people with cerebral palsy. The research method was research and development using quantitative and qualitative approaches. The respondents were people with cerebral palsy who met the CP football classification requirements according to the International Federation of Cerebral Palsy Football (IFCPF) regulations. Data analysis used the SPSS statistical software. The study resulted in a valid and reliable test instrument for eye, hand, and foot coordination for cerebral palsy football players. The norms for the Eye-Hand and Foot Coordination Ability test of the Cerebral Palsy football players were in the Excellent category (Point 5) if the score was ≥ 29, Good (Point 4) for the score of 19-28, Moderate (Point 3) for the score of 10-18, Deficient (Point 2) for the score of 5-9, and Immoderate (Point 1) if the score was ≤ 4. The eye, hand, and foot coordination test instrument was mainly for the CP football players, which can also be used by athletes, coaches, and educators. This instrument was named Umar Motor Ability Circuit-Cerebral Palsy Football (UMAC-CPF) Coordination Test Model.
