Author(s): Mridusmita Phukan

Abstract:
Social support is vital to athletes' performance and well-being. Social support has a strong influence on youth sports. The athletes' ability to rely on social support in sports help them to overcome the obstacles like environmental stressors and others in the sports arena. The study aimed to explore the Multidimensional Perceived Social Support between National level Male and Female shuttlers of Assam. A total of 30 (thirty) subjects, male 15 (fifteen) and female 15 (fifteen) National level Badminton players from Assam were selected to collect data. The age of the subjects ranged from 13-19 years. The purposive sampling technique was applied to select the subjects. The Multidimensional Perceived Social Support questionnaire developed by Zimet, Dahlem NW, Zimet SG, and Farley Gk 1988 was used to collect data. Mean and standard deviation were used as descriptive statistics, and a t-test was used to compare social support between genders. The level of significance was kept at 0.05 level. Male and Female Badminton players statistically no significant difference was observed between the groups on perceived social support (t = 0.051< t .05(28)= 2.048), support from significant others (t = .535< t .05(28)= 2.048), support from family (t = 0.168< t .05(28)= 2.048)and support from friends (t = 0.053< t .05(28)= 2.048).
