The purpose of this study was to compare the anthropometric characteristics and selected fitness variables between women Kho-Kho and Kabaddi players. A total of fifty (N=50) subjects were randomly chosen for this study. Out of 50 players, 25 players were from Kho-Kho and 25 from Kabaddi. The age of the players ranged from 18 to 28 years. The variable undertake for the study are : selected anthropometric variables namely height, weight, arm length, leg length and motor ability test namely abdominal muscle strength endurance (AMSE), leg explosive strength (LES), speed and agility were considered as criterion for the study. All the fitness variables were measured by AAHPER Youth Fitness Test. Mean and standard deviation of each variable were calculated and t-test was computed to analyze the significance of difference between the means. All statistical calculations were done by standard statistical procedure. To determine the differences, if any, between the two groups of players, the independent t-test was calculated. Statistical significance was tested at 0.05 level of confidence. It is concluded from the result that no significant difference was observed between the women Kho-Kho and Kabaddi players.Pages: 66-68 | 920 Views 32 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
