Level of aspiration of cricket players in relation to their sports achievementAuthor(s):
The present study was an attempt to investigate the significant mean difference and correlation between level of aspiration & sports achievement of cricket players which are participating at District, State, Inter-university and National level. The sample of the study comprised 300 cricket players of Haryana state. All the players are male participants and their age ranges from 17 to 23 years. Level of aspiration of cricket players was incorporated: Shah & Bhargava). In order to test the significance of mean difference between the variables descriptive statistics, one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was applied and for comparison between possible pairs of different achievement groups, Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied. The correlations among variables were obtained by using Pearson’s product movement method of correlation. The result indicates that two of the three measures of level of aspiration showed significant correlation with different achievement levels of cricket players. Goal discrepancy score (GDS) yielded negative correlation, while Number of time Goal reach score (NTRS) showed a positive correlation with achievement in cricket. Correlation between Attainment discrepancy score (ADS) and achievement levels of cricket players is not found to be significant. Different achievement groups differ significantly on GDS and NTRS while no difference was found among cricket players on ADS (a measure of LOA).Pages: 14-18 | 946 Views 16 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
