The purpose of this study was to compare the selected anthropometric and physical fitness variables between football and hockey male players. Total thirty subjects were randomly selected (15 from football and 15 from hockey) for this study. The age of the players ranged from 20 to 30 years. The variables undertake for the study are: selected anthropometric variables namely height, weight, and physical fitness variables namely speed and agility were considered as criterion for the study. The physical fitness variables were measured by AAHPER Youth Fitness Test. Mean and standard deviation of each variable were calculated and independent 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 football and hockey male players.Pages: 30-31 | 1230 Views 56 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
