Abstract Basketball is a game that requires being fast in both attack and defense with a precision in tactical and technical preparation. The layup technique can effect on the score dramatically and provide teams winning of the game. However, strength, speed and accuracy are the basic requirements interact with technical for an effective layup, and the kinematic analysis is a type of biomechanics analysis that care of descript the movement. Therefore, the objective of this study was to investigation biomechanical parameters of layup which can effect on the score and to find out the difference between the layup techniques of players experienced and younger group player of the same university team. A descriptive research design used in the current study .The population of this study was undergraduate male basketball players of the University of Mosul -Iraq, for the academic year 2012-2013, each sample included (6) male basketball players; young players=(176.7 cm tall), (18,3 years age) older player =(179.6 cm tall), (23,3 years age). The procedure of this research started with warm up for 15 minutes followed by passing, shooting, and the players performed the layup technique by repeated 3 times and the best performance of layup was selected to analyze. Data were analyzed using SPSS version 19.0, Mean variables compared by T-test at 0.05. Programs of Maxtra and Dartfish used for analysis. This study conclude that -The length and speed of first and second step for older players higher for the older player than the youth, The older players were better in all tested variables (horizontal and vertical distance, Hips Displacement for jumping, Height of palm, distance of take-off from basketball).
