Author(s): S Susatha, STN Rajeswaran and T Mohan Kumar

Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to find out the positional influence on select motor fitness variables among the male handball players participated in the inter-collegiate level. As samples, the handball players from the teams qualified for pre-quarter at inter-collegiate level tournaments were selected with the purpose of overcome the differences in the performance on variables among the samples. Thus initially 224 players (Back court position = 96, Pivot position = 64 and Wing position = 64) were selected for the present study. In selection of samples, age group was fixed in the range of 18-24 who were hailed from various socio- economic conditions. In the present study, to study how for, the motor fitness components influenced the positional play, based on the nature of the positional play and research studies pertinent factors demanding the performance of players in the particular positions, the following variables were selected. Thus, as motor fitness components speed, agility and explosive power were identified. Hence to study the influence of positional play on motor fitness components among the handball players, as research design comparative research design was employed in this study. For which form the selected samples (N=224) based on status on tournament and voluntary participation using random sampling method further the samples were extracted 30 for Back court position, 30 for Pivot position and 30 for Wing position. Thus totally 90 samples were selected for the final study. The collected data were tested using one way analysis of variance. Further to test the significance of results 0.05 level was chosen as level of significance. Positional play used in the study to find out its significance over the components of speed, agility and explosive power evidencing that each positions shows its dominance on the components. Thus regarding in the performance of speed, pivot positional play found to be better than others. Whereas in the performance of agility, players pertain to backcourt positions and in the performance of explosive power wing position found to be better than others.
