Author(s): Vivek Pandey and Dr. Praveen Kumar

Abstract:
Soccer is the most popular sports played worldwide. Apart from technical efficiency and tactical skills, the most important features of successful soccer players are their physical components of motor fitness which affects their performance. The assessment of physical capacities of soccer players is one of the most important issues in modern gameplay. The objective of present study was to assess the selected physical and physiological parameters among Indian collegiate soccer players. For the purpose of this study, a total of 20 male soccer players (age: 19±0.47 years; height: 170±4.5 cm; body weight: 67±2.04 kg) were recruited from the soccer match practice group at LNIPE Gwalior. YYIRT2 was administered to measure aerobic endurance, VO2max was assessed using an equation and HR, and BR were recorderd by palpation method. The major finding of this study is that collegiate level soccer players exhibited fairly excellent results which shows that they had a sound physical base. They may be lacking tactical and technical skills to excel the game of soccer at higher competitive levels. The coaching staff may utilize these field-based tests to track the improvements made by different training methods.
