Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and risk factors and ability to predict injuries in male and female athletes. Methods: Fifty-five students of physical education and sport sciences (32 male, 23 female, age=19.22 ± 0.91 yrs. height = 170.05 ± 8.56 cm) were objectively selected to participate in this research. To evaluate the quality of the movements FMS was used. To evaluate injury risk factors some standard tests such as; medicine ball throw, agility t-test, vertical jump, Y balance, 45-m sprint and V-sit flexibility tests were used. Pearson correlation and logistic regression were used for data analysis (p≤0.05). Results: Logistic regression indicated that students with FMS scores≤14, 4.12 time higher than the other students (FMS>14) supposed to lower extremities injuries (p=0.012). Pearson correlations showed that FMS had significantly negative correlation whit agility and sprint (p< 0.05). Also, FMS had significantly positive correlation whit vertical jump, Y balance and V-sit flexibility (p< 0.05). But, FMS did not have significant correlation whit medicine ball throw (p>0.05). According to FMS scores, 67 of the subjects were supposed to increase risk of injury. Conclusion: Therefore, the FMS test can be used as a predictor of lower body sport injuries. It is also a suitable tool to assess athletic physical performance, before and after participating in sports.
