Sidestepping is a context specific perceptual-motor skill commonly performed in team sports to evade opponent (s), but has never been investigated in conditions resembling game situations. This study examined selected trunk and lower body kinematics, kinetics, and muscle activation of high-level (HL) and low-level (LL) soccer players, during sidestepping to evade projected, three-dimensional (3D) stereoscopic defender (s). These comparisons were made with traditionally used two-dimensional planned and unplanned ...
