Aim. This study examined the effects of 6 mg.kg(-1) caffeine ingestion in team-sport players (N.=10) on repeated-sprint running performance (5 sets of 6 x 20 m) and reaction times, 64) min after caffeine or placebo ingestion.Methods. Rest single sprint and total set sprint times, blood lactate and simple and choice reaction times (RT) were measured.Results. Total sprint times across sets 1, 3 and 5 (departure every 25 s) were significantly faster after caffeine (85.49 +/- 5.55 s) than placebo (86.98 +/- 5.78 s) (P
