Comparative evaluation of mental toughness among female players based on their achievements in indigenous sports


Author(s): Dr. Arun Kumar Nayak

Abstract:
The present study was planned to assess the difference in mental toughness of indigenous sports female players based on their achievements. To conduct the study 30 high achiever female players were selected from indigenous sports namely kho-kho and kabaddi. The criteria were to have a team member of a team from the first four places in the national tournament. 30 district level female players were also selected from the same indigenous sports and labelled as low achievers. The age range of female players of both groups was 20-25 years. Random sampling was used for selecting female players participating in indigenous sports. The mental toughness of female players participating in indigenous sports was evaluated by a questionnaire constructed by Tiwari (2007). This questionnaire is a valid measure to evaluate mental toughness and it is based on five factors namely self-confidence, motivation, attention control, goal setting, visual and imagery control and attitude control respectively. The reliability and validity of this questionnaire are established by the author with proper statistical techniques. Based on results and discussion it may be concluded that high achiever female players from indigenous sports possess more magnitude of mental toughness than the low achiever female players from indigenous sports thereby reestablishing the scientific linkage between mental toughness and achievement in indigenous sports competitions.
