This study aims to investigate the effect of skill related physical fitness on the development of technical ability: in the case of Debre Markos University under-17male Football project players.  Explosive leg power, speed, agility physical fitness components and distance accurate shooting and speed dribbling technical components of Football project players were the main target of the study. They were 25 in number but due to injuries 2 players excluded whereas the remaining all 23 players were selected by using purposive sampling method. The average age of the participants’ was 16±0.756 years. To assess the level of physical and technical components of the player’s field test was used. The data was analyzed through multivariate and simple linear regression statistics method.  The finding of the study showed that most of the players had very poor level of power performance, excellent level of speed and agility performance when we compared with the international standard of physical fitness level.  On average, accurate shooting increased by 3.241 times significantly when explosive leg power increased by 1 meter, On average, speed dribbling was increased by 6.847 second times significantly when speed increased by one second and On average, speed dribbling was increased by 1.628 second times significantly when agility increased by one second. Therefore skill related physical fitness (explosive leg power, speed and agility) had their own effect on the development of technical ability in football.
