It was hypothesized that there may be no significant difference in Balance Ability of track and field athletes at different levels of achievement. For the purpose of the study, 90 male track and field athletes from Gujarat were selected as a subject. Thirty athlete (n=30) from district level and thirty athlete (n=30) from state level participated as subjects for the study. Hence, purposive sampling technique was considered for selection of subjects. The age of the subjects was ranged from 15-18 years. Descriptive statistics was used to process the data prior to employing inferential statistics. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to compare Balance ability of track and field players of different level on selected criterion variables separately. Level of significance was set at 0.05. It is evident from significant difference were found between the Balance Ability of District & State (0.1090), District & National (0.7380) and State & National level (0.6290). The observed sequence of performance of Balance Ability in three groups is District>State>National.
