The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of 4 week conditioning programme on selected physical fitness components of novice hockey players of Kashmir. 25 novice junior hockey players of Kashmir of the age group 12-14 years were selected, by random sampling technique, for the study. Conditioning programme for four weeks was adopted to develop cardiovascular endurance, agility, and flexibility of the athletes. Pre-test and Post-test were conducted. Standard tests were used to evaluate the parameters as, Cardiovascular Endurance (Queens College Step Test), Flexibility (Forward Bend and Reach Test) & Agility (4x10 Yards Shutter Run). The results showed that in Cardio-Vascular Endurance no significant differences were found (p
