AUTHOR(S): Dr. Deepak Sharma and Jaiveer Singh Rawat
The study was conducted for the purpose of constructions of objective skills test battery in soccer as well as to prepare norms for the selected test items. For the purpose of this study a total of 50 male soccer players were selected from Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education, Gwalior. The purposive sampling method was adopted to select the subjects for the study. All the subjects were in the age category of 16-25 years. The data was collected by administering various test batteries. To construct a test battery the basic fundamental soccer skill was selected i.e. Kicking, Dribbling, Receiving, Tackling, Heading, Feinting and Ball Sense. Statistical analysis consisted of multiple correlation and regression analysis technique were used for selecting the optimum number of skill test items on the basis of players high magnitude of co-efficient with playing ability. Findings of the study reveals the significant relationship between independent variables and the criterions. The highest value of correlation for different components namely, kicking the ball along the ground for accuracy (r=.299), kicking the rolling ball along the ground for accuracy (r=.308), shooting in goal (r=-.375), Figure of 8 dribbling (r=.289), receiving the ball with chest (r=.358), receiving the rolling ball with foot (r=.322), receiving an Arial ball with foot (r=-.408). The combined contribution of these seven-battery test shows higher significant relationship on soccer playing ability. The soccer test batteries developed by the researcher has the ability to predict the objective skill test of soccer player.
