An analytical study of reaction time and speed in hockey playersAuthor(s):
Dr. Shrikant S MankarAbstract:
The purpose of the present study was to determine the relationship between reaction time (auditory & visual) and speed (20 meter sprint time) in male hockey players. A total of 45 male hockey players with an average age, height and weight of 21.38 ± 3.15 years, 170.34 ± 5.79 cm and 64.17 ± 6.45 kg, respectively, volunteered to participate in this study. Each subject’s reaction time and speed were measured, and the data analyzed using Pearson’s correlation and paired t
tests. There were no meaningful correlations between reaction time and speed in the subjects. However, their auditory reaction times were significantly better than their visual reaction times, and there was a negative correlation between body weight and speed (p
< 0.01).Pages: 111-113 | 379 Views 6 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
