Relationship of selected kinematic variables with the performance of basketball players in layup shot


Author(s): Dr. Praveen Kumar

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to measure the relationship of selected biomechanical variables to the performance in Lay-up shot. The subjects for this study were ten male basketball players of Dept. of Physical Education, Ch. Charan Singh University Meerut, who represented Ch. Charan Singh University Meerut in Intervarsity Championship. The age ranged from eighteen to twenty two years. All the subjects were right handed shooters. The data was analyzed by use of Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation. The level of significance chosen to test the hypothesis was. 05. None of the selected angular kinematic variables that is Ankle Joint (Right and Left), Knee Joint (Right and Left), Shoulder Joint (Right and Left), Elbow Joint (Right and Left) and Wrist (Right and Left), and Hip Joint (Left and Right) has significant relationship with the performance of basketball players in lay-up shot. Incase of linear kinematic variables that is height of center of gravity at moment release does not have significant relationship with the performance of basketball players in lay-up shot.
