Abstract: The aim of this study was to identify the effects of format and task condition on heart rate responses and technical/tactical performance measured by mathematical methods. Ten male basketball players (14.75 ± 0.46 years old; 5 ± 1.4 years of training)from a Portuguese youth regional league participated voluntarily in this study. Results revealed that the format had significant main effects and large effect size (Pillai’s Trace = 0.692; F(10,78) = 4.124; p = 0.001; = 0.346; Power = 0.996) on heart rate responses and technical/tactical performance. It was also found that task conditions had a significant main effects and a large effect size (Pillai’s Trace = 0.623; F(10,78) = 3.526; p = 0.001; = 0.311; Power = 0.988) on heart rate responses and technical/tactical performance. Smaller formats had the highest heart rate responses, volume of play, attacks with ball, efficiency index and performance scores. The task condition with two targets had the highest heart rate responses and the task with endline had the highest values of volume of play, attacks with ball, efficiency index and performance score. In sum, it was found that smaller formats are similar to anaerobic workouts and to can be used to increase technical actions. The bigger formats are appropriated to high intensity aerobic workouts and to can be used to increase the complexity of the task.
