Abdul Roof Rather and Brij Bhushan SinghAbstract:
The purpose of this study was to compare the trait and state sport self-confidence of High and Low altitude intervarsity cricket players. 50 cricket players, 25 High Altitude (North Zone Level) Cricket Players and 25 Low Altitude (North Zone Level) Cricket Players were selected through random sampling for this study. The age of the players ranged between 21-25 years and had been practicing in their sport/game for an average of 9 years. The research instruments used were Trait Sport Confidence Inventory (TSCI, Vealey, 1986) and State Sport Confidence Inventory (SSCI, Vealey (1986). Trait sport Confidence Inventory was distributed among subjects approximately 18 hours before the first competition and state self confidence inventory was distributed among subjects about 1 hour before the first competition. It was found that both high and low altitude cricket players fall in the high trait and state sport self-confidence level. To test the hypothesis that the High Altitude Players and Low Altitude Players were associated with statistically insignificantly different mean TSSC and SSSC, an independent samples t-test was performed. The independent samples t-test was associated with a statistically significant difference for TSSC t (48) = 2.27, p
<.001 and for SSSC t (48) = 2.75, p
<.001. On the basis the results it was concluded that Low Altitude Cricket Players possess more Trait Sport Self Confidence and State Sport Self Confidence than High Altitude Players.Pages: 26-28 | 620 Views 31 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
