A comparative study of acceleration measures of Kabaddi players on clay and synthetic surface: With reference to RaidersAuthor(s):
Sourabh Pradhan and CD AgasheAbstract:
The aim of the present study was to assess acceleration measures of raiders on two different playing surfaces. To conduct the study, 100 national/interuniversity Kabaddi players (Average age 25.23 years) were selected. Following the inclusion criteria only raiders from teams were selected purposively as sample. Tracker video motion analysis software was used in the present study to assess acceleration measures of Raiders. A movement puzzle, designed in consultation with Kabaddi experts was used to study directional movement of selected raiders with the help of video motion analysis. It was found that the raiders accelerate faster on synthetic surface (Mean=36.53 m/s2
) as compared to clay surface (Mean = 31.53 m/s2
). The calculated t=4.68 also supports this findings at. 01 level of statistical significance because it is greater than the table value of 2.63 for df=99. It was concluded that the synthetic surface is more helpful in rate of change of velocity of raiders in relation to time as compared to clay surface.Pages: 12-14 | 229 Views 30 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
