Musculoskeletal disorders stand high (30%) in the rating of the reasons that limit physical activity of young people. One of the manifestations of this pathology is equilibrium dysfunction and disturbed coordination. The objective of the research was to study the peculiarities of motor coordination and bioelectrical activity of the lower limb muscles when kicking the ball in football players with musculoskeletal disorders. Subject to the study were 1st-2nd-year students (n=30) of Tomsk Polytechnic University, aged 18-20 years, who were majoring in football. When kicking the ball, football players with musculoskeletal disorders have to deal with motor coordination disturbances, which manifest themselves in the movement delinearity. At the same time, there is a structural reorganization of their leg muscle work - decreased activity of the thigh muscles is accompanied by increased activity of the calf muscles. The obtained results make it possible to adjust the training program for football players with musculoskeletal disorders.
