Hockey playing ability with relation to selected physical fitness physiological and skill variables


Author(s): R. Sendhil

Abstract: To determine the relationship study on the hockey playing ability with selected physical fitness physiological and skill variables. Hundred subjects selected from District level Hockey players for the study. All the players were selected for this study were Puducherry. All the selected players were with good physique and training status. The main aim of this study was to appraise the selected physical fitness components namely, speed and agility, physiological variables namely, resting pulse rate and vital capacity, and skills (dribbling and hitting and dribbling and shooting) as prerequisites for hockey performance. The following statistical applications were employed to analyze the data. Pearson’s product moment correlation and multiple correlations were used to find out the relationship of playing ability with selected physical, physiological and skill variables. The results proved that the selected skill variables namely, dribbling and hitting, dribbling and goal shooting were significantly correlated with the criterion variable hockey playing ability as the obtained r values -0.597 and 0.745 respectively were greater than the required r value 0.195 to be significant at 0.05 level. The results proved that the selected physical fitness variables, namely agility and speed were significantly correlated with the criterion variable hockey playing ability as the obtained r values -0.777 and -0.666 respectively were greater than the required r value 0.195 to be significant at 0.05 level. The results proved that the selected physiological variables namely vital capacity and resting pulse rate were significantly correlated with the criterion variable hockey playing ability as the obtained r values -0.520 and -0.828 respectively were greater than the required r value 0.195 to be significant at 0.05 level.
