The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of three types of plyometric, balance and combination training on ankle proprioception. Sixty students of University of Mohajer Isfahan (mean ±SD; age 24/9± 4/3 year, weight 74±4/8 kg and height 1/72± 8/2cm) voluntarily participated in this study. Subjects randomly were divided into four plyometric, balance, and combination training and control groups. All subjects were tested ankle angular reconstructions in 5, 10 & 15 angles of ankle proprioception star test. Three experimental groups performed their training programs for duration of eight weeks (three sessions per week).After eight weeks performed post test .Data were analysed using unilateral variance and LSD post hoc test. All analyses performed on SPSS 16 software. Results of this study showed that, The effect of pre-test training on post- test training was significant in ankle proprioception avrzhn 15 ° (F(59,1) =28/9 and P=0/001) and inversion 10 ° (F(59.1) =21/75 and P=0/001) and the others was meaningless (p>0/05). Also interaction between test sessions in group was significant proprioception variable in all degrees and two forms avrzhn and inverzhen (p≤0/05).It can be concluded that the combination training can be suggested as a good program for achieving to the highest effectiveness in ankle angular reconstruction as well as use of balance training for improvement of angular reconstruction
