Abstract:
Vision is the key of victory in all sports. Visual skills are very important for players. There can be no doubt that visual skills have a positive impact on the performance of players. A successful player needs not only good physical fitness, but also visual skills. The game badminton is a multidisciplinary skill. In this game, the short-serve and long-serve play a dominant role. In this present study the researchers tried to study the effect of visual skills training on the abilities of short-serve and long-serve among the school level badminton players. One hundred and twenty nine students studying in schools in the age group of 12-14 who have experienced minimum at inter-school level competitions were selected. Out of this, samples exist in the range from 3.5 to 5 on the performance of overall playing ability are screened to 64. Among them, 45 samples were randomly selected and assigned to three groups equally. Thus, each group consists of 15 subjects. Group-1 is named as Visual Skills with Imagery Training (VSIT), Group -2 as Visual Skills Training (VST) alone and Group-3 as Control Group (Traditional Training Group). As variables, the performance of subjects on the abilities of short-serve and long-serve were selected. The French Short-serve Test and Pool Long-serve Test have been used to measure short-serve and long-serve respectively. The samples of Experimental Group-1 were treated with visual skills with imagery training, Experimental Group –2 with visual skills training alone and Experimental Group -3 with traditional training for about 12 weeks in alternative days a week. For employing visual skills, the drills related to coordinative abilities and basic fundamental skills were used with duration of 40 minutes. The collected data were tested with paired t-test, so as to test the induvidualised effects and comparative effects of visual skills with imagery training, visual skills training alone and traditional group on selected coordinate abilities of short-serve and long-serve. To test the significance of the results derived, 5% level of significance was chosen. The results of the study revealed that there is positive effect of visual skills training on the abilities of short-serve and long-serve among the school level badminton players.
