Priya S, Haripriya S and Tej NarayanAbstract: Introduction:
Agility can be defined as the ability which allows one to act and alter direction quickly and effectively to achieve a specific goal e.g., evade, deceive, react to the opponent, create space, etc. Functional performance refers to any action performed with a certain goal or action with purpose. Agility is one of the significant components which contributes individually to exhibit optimal performance in daily activities as well as in recreational games. But the relationship between agility and functional performance in recreational athletes is not established.
Aim: To determine the relationship between agility and functional performance in recreational football players.
Methodology: Twenty-four male recreational football players were selected according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Each participant performed tests for agility and functional performance i.e T-test and Triple hop test respectively. Karl’s Pearson Correlation Coefficient test with SPSS v.26 was used to determine the correlation between the two tests.
Result: A statistically significant positive correlation was found between agility and functional performance in recreational football players. (r=0.739, p=0.000)
Conclusion: This study confers a positive relationship between agility and functional performance indicating better agility can result in better functional performance. Pages: 363-366 | 159 Views 8 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
