Background: Cricket is the most popular sport in India. In cricket, the majorities of injuries are of a non-contact nature and have traditionally been thought of as “overuse” injuries. The CricFit intervention is focused on aspects such agility, strength, power, endurance, speed, flexibility, repeat sprint ability, injury prevention and performance and improve the cricket-specific physical fitness and performance of cricket players.
Objective: To determine the effect of CricFit Intervention program on throwing and running performance in non- elite Adolescent Cricketers.
Method: 40 Non-elite male adolescent cricket players within age group 19-24 randomly assigned and baseline variables were recorded pre and post. CricFit intervention program 35-45 min per session is given. The intervention also incorporated a dynamic warm-up and a static cool-down. Pre and post intervention, the parameter assessed by using functional throwing performance index (FTPI), radar gun, 17.68-m with bat sprint cricket speed test.
Results: The CricFit intervention program in pre test the Mean and SD of FTPI was 52.90±15.28, which was decreased in post test with Mean and SD 53.63±10.16. The Wilcoxon test for pre and post test were no significant at (p> 0.05). In pre test the Mean and SD of Radar Gun was 101.33±7.68, which was increased in post test with Mean and SD of 104.53±8.08, the t–test for pre and post score were significant at (p< 0.001). In pre test the Mean and SD of 17.68-m with bat sprint cricket speed test 3.21±0.22, which was reduced in post test with Mean and SD of 2.73±0.46, the t-test for pre and post test score were significant at (p< 0.001).
Conclusion: It evidenced that CricFit intervention program was statistically significantly improved the throwing speed and running performance among the non elite adolescent cricket player but no statistically significant differences was seen in throwing accuracy.Pages: 07-13 | 319 Views 88 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
