Author(s): Maibam Chourjit Singh, T Inaobi Singh, RK Nongdren Singh

Abstract: The current study attempts to explore the sports competitive anxiety among Manipuri male footballers with respect to their playing position, and to find out if there exists any significant difference among Manipuri male footballers with respect to their playing position. SCAT (Martens, et al., 1990) has been administered to 30 male football players participating in the Manipur State League Football Tournament, 2014 organized by All Manipur Football Association under the aegis of Asian Football Confederation (AFC). The Sports Competitive Anxiety Scores of the Manipuri male footballers was found to be average (n=30, mean=17.26, σ= 3.19 and SEM =0.58). Difference on Sports Competitive Anxiety Scores between defender (n=10, mean=17.5, σ=3.50) and forward (n=10, mean=17.4, σ=3.74) footballers was found to be statistically not significant at p≤0.05 (t-value=0.952) at df=18.Also, difference on Sports Competitive Anxiety Scores between midfielder (n=10, mean=16.9, σ=2.51) and forward (n=10, mean=17.4, σ=3.74) footballers was found to be statistically not significant at p≤0.05 (t-value=0.730) at df=18. Further, difference on Sports Competitive Anxiety Scores between midfielder (n=10, mean=16.9, σ=2.51) and defender (n=10, mean=17.5, σ=3.50) footballers was found to be statistically not significant at p≤0.05 (t-value=0.665) at df=18.And also difference on Sports Competitive Anxiety Scores among defender (n=10, mean=17.5, σ=3.50), midfielder (n=10, mean=16.9, σ=2.51) and forward (n=10, mean=17.4, σ=3.74) footballers was found to be statistically not significant at p≤0.05 (f-value=0.095) at df=27.The results of the study revealed that anxiety level of Manipuri male footballers is average and there exist no significant difference on anxiety level among the footballers with respect to their playing position. The current study was limited in sample size and tools adopted for the study. Further research incorporating more sample size may give better insight on the problem.
