Author(s): Vyas Shrinath Rakesh and Shah Nipa

Abstract: Kabaddi has gained tremendous popularity in the world, although there are studies which have addressed physical and biomechanical risk factors but, there is hardly any evidence depicting the injury prevalence and its correlation with the psychological characteristics. The purpose of the study is to examine the influence of psychological variables on the injury risk among young kabaddi players. 88 kabaddi athletes (52 males, 36 females) of under 17 age completed Competitive State Anxiety Inventory (CSAI-2) and reported frequency of injury occurrence in past 12 months. The results of Spearman’s correlation analysis showed more significant correlation between injury occurrence with cognitive state anxiety (p<0.01) and self-confidence (p<0.05) in female kabaddi players and in male kabaddi players there was significant correlation between injury occurrence and self-confidence (p<0.05). It can be concluded that psychological factors may relate with the injury occurrence in kabaddi players. So that can be addressed and dealt with to improve the overall performance.
