Relationship of Psychomotor characteristics and playing ability of hockey players


Author(s): Mandoli Sapna and Sen Shweta

Abstract: The purpose of the study is to find out the relationship between psychomotor and playing ability of hockey players (N=20) male University Hockey team players of LNIPE, Gwalior were selected as the subject of the study, age ranging between 18 to 25 years with a mean and SD 20.40 ± 1.47. The data was obtained by testing sensomotor coordination (S2)- Time in Ideal range (TIR), Visual pursuit test (S2) - No of correct answers (NCA), Reaction test (S10) - Mean reaction time (MRT) and time movement anticipation (S3) - Motion Anticipation - (MA) for psychomotor abilities and Akhil Malhotra objective skill test (Angular passing & receiving test – (APRT); Dodging & goal shooting test - (DGST); & Rolling & passing test (RPT) for playing abilities. The psychomotor abilities were assessed with the Vienna Test System (VTS). The data was analyzed by using Pearson's Product Moment correlation. The overall performance of psychomotor abilities was correlated to the playing ability of Hockey players. The level of significance was set at 0.05 level. The criterion measures chosen for assessing the psychomotor abilities with the Vienna Test System (VTS) are: Sensomotor Coordination (SMK S2), Visual pursuit test (LVT S2), Reaction test (RT S10), Time/movement Anticipation (ZBA S3). After analyzing the data it was found that The correlation of Hockey playing ability (APRT) angular passing & receiving test & psychomotor ability (LVT), of sub factor (NCA) no of correct answers is significantly correlated whereas hockey playing ability is positively correlated with (RT,ZBA) reaction test & time movement anticipation. In psychomotor ability (SMK) & hockey playing ability negatively correlation is found. The correlation of Hockey playing ability (dodging and goal shooting test & Rolling & passing test) & sensomotor coordination, Visual Pursuit Test is negatively correlated & with Reaction test, Time Movement Anticipation is positively correlated.
