Author(s): Dr. Ashwani Kumar

Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to analyze the differences in linear measurements between goal keepers of football and hockey game. This study was conducting on 20 goal keepers of football and hockey game with an aim to find out differences in certain linear anthropometric measurements between the goal keepers of football (N = 10) and hockey (N = 10). The data for the present study were collected in the inter college competition organized by Himachal Pradesh University. Each player was tested for various anthropometric measurements necessary for estimation of body weight, height, sitting height and certain linear measurements of goal keepers of football and hockey game. To analyze the difference in selected anthropometric measurements between two groups of football and hockey game were determined through ‘t’ test. From the findings, it may be interpreted that goal keepers of football game have depicted somewhat higher mean value for height, weight, sitting height, total arm length, leg length, upper leg length, foot length and foot width and similarly, the goal keepers of hockey game have shown higher mean value for lower leg length as compared to goal keepers of football game. But none of such mean differences were found to be significant at 0.05 levels.
