Dr. Margrette Leena V and Alex MAbstract:
The purpose of the study was to find out the somatotype characteristics of football players in coastal area. For the purpose of the study a total of 60 male subjects were selected randomly from the game of football who represented District level and above. Their age ranged between 18 to 25. Players from coastal area of Thiruvananthapuram District of Kerala state were selected as subject for the present study. The variables selected for the study were Somatotype components Endomorphy, Mesomorphy and Ectomorphy. The absolute variables measured for deriving the somatotype components were body mass, stretch stature, Triceps skinfold, subscapular skinfold, biceps skinfold, iliac crest skinfold, supra spinale skinfold, abdominal skinfold, medial calf skinfold, Arm girth relaxed, Arm girth flexed and tensed, waist girth (Min), Glutel girth (max), Calf girth (max), Humerus breadth and femur breadth. Descriptive statistics such as mean, standard deviation and Frequency are calculated to find out the status of somatotype components. And also to find out the frequency of each type falling into the specific playing positions. The result indicate that more number of football players (24 numbers) of coastal area is falling in the expected Ectomorphic Mesomorph body type group.Pages: 83-86 | 123 Views 8 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
