Background: Upper extremity closed kinetic chain exercise has been a common place in most rehabilitation program. Despite of it, there is no clear universally accepted clinical testing tool. A well-designed assessment should gauge dynamic unit in sports and activities of daily living. Because of the limited knowledge regarding UQYBT. The study aims to analyze the impact and effect of shoulder range of motion and core strength in UQYBT. Objective: The primary purpose of the study is to determine the relationship between upper quarter Y balance test to the other component such as posterior capsule tightness, shoulder range of motion, core strength and impact of hand dominance. Method: A sample of 30 young cricketers from MSD academy at Chennai performed the upper quarter y balance test and 7 auxiliary tests. Each subject performed 3 trials. Best of 3 is taken for the calculation. The relationship between the auxiliary test and upper quarter y balance test were analyzed. The difference between the dominant and non-dominant hand functioning were calculated. Result: Thirty subject (29 male and 1 female) with the mean age of 14.75±2.597 completed the test. One participant data was excluded from analysis as he had previous history of injury. Collected data were statistically analyzed using Pearson’s correlation test. Conclusion: A significant moderate correlation was present between the UQYBT and core stability (P < 0.05). no significant correlation between the shoulder range of motion and UQYBT. Discussion: The study does not provide significant ground to prove the reliability of the test. And there only moderate correlation found between UQYBT and core strength. Smaller size of sample is one of the major factors for the discrepancy. Further research with large sample is needed to determine the relevance of UQYBT. Level of evidence: 2b
