Analysis of psychomotor abilities as predictive factor for female long jumpersAuthor(s):
Sports activities required different levels of fitness and abilities as par the level of competition & requirement of that particular skill or event. Psychomotor abilities play an important role in learning and execution of skills. Sometimes the level of involvement of ability may vary in different games. So to analyze the impact of selected psychomotor abilities on long jump performance as predictive factor for female long jumpers researcher opted this topic for her research work. For the purpose of this study 55 female national level long jumpers were selected as a subject. Age group of athletes was 17 - 28 years. To carry out this study Single Group Experimental Research design was used. The test item selected for this study was psychomotor abilities i.e. Reaction Time, Speed of Movement, Kinesthetic Perception, Explosive power and Flexibility. Reaction Time was measured by Four way alternate response test, Speed of Movement was measured by Nelson Speed of Movement Test, Kinesthetic Perception was measured by Horizontal Space Test, Explosive Power was measured by Standing Broad Jump and Flexibility was measured by Modified Sit and Reach Test. Performance of an athlete’s was recorded during the competition. The data on jumping performance along with psychomotor abilities was examined by Pearson’s Product Movement Correlation in order to find out the relationship of jumping performance to each of the psychomotor abilities separately. Multiple Linear Regression analysis was done in order to predict jumping performance on the basis of psychomotor abilities. The level of significance to check the relationship obtained by Pearson’s Product Movement Correlation was set at 0.05.Pages: 479-481 | 1399 Views 57 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
