Football players sprint several times to attack, seize the ball or rush to secure the area for the whole duration of the game, which required aerobic capacity and is a factor in winning a game. Therefore, the purpose of the study was to describe the aerobic capacity of grassroots boy’s football players in North-east India. The study was conducted on one hundred and twenty-five boys of age: 11±1; height: 142.56±9.29 cm and weight: 35.53±7.13 kg from the northeast state of India. Aerobic capacity was measured by a 20m shutter run test. Descriptive statistic was applied for analysis in SPSS 16. In the result, the median VO2
max was 44.49 and the median class was 42-46. 36% were lies in the median class, 13.6% were below the median and 49.8% were above the median. The study concluded as the North-east player has good aerobic capacity at the national level but at the international level, aerobic capacity was average. Therefore, it was suggested that for competing at an international level further research and proper training were required.Pages: 78-79 | 68 Views 4 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
