Abstract:
Man has faced numerous problems since the beginning of life. They have solved the problems by the help of Physical Capacity and mental capacity viz., intelligence creativity etc. It can never say that the creative genius only born but can be manifest through proper congenial environments. Motor creativity is the physical expression of the creativity. When a child play it can be considered as the expression of creativeness in his own world of movement and actions. The physical aspects of motor creativity are only possible through motor movements. The ability of motor movement has been measured through motor ability test. Persistency of an individual mostly depends on mental power as well as it depends on motor capacity. 60 boys from 22 to 25 years were selected as the subject of the study among which 20 were football, 20 Kho-Kho and 20 cricket plays. All the subjects were taken from state level players in their respective games. The purpose of the study was to find relationship among persistency, motor fitness and motor creativity, whether motor creativity was dependent on persistency or on motor fitness or on both persistency and motor fitness together and whether persistency, motor fitness and motor creativity has any influence on performance of different nature of games. Motor creativity was measured by a newly constructed test by the researcher. The motor fitness of the subjects was measured through Indian Motor Fitness Test. The persistency of the subjects was measured through square puzzle test. In case of statistical procedure, Mean, Sd, ‘t’- test and correlation was done. The result shows that in motor fitness Kho-Kho players were better than other two groups and in motor creativity Kho-Kho players were also better than football and cricket group but in case of persistency cricket players were better than other two groups. The motor fitness, motor creativity and persistency were related to each other.
