The objective of the study was to prediction of hockey playing ability on the basis of Physiological variables.
Method: For the purpose of study twenty male National hockey players were selected. Hockey playing ability was selected as a dependent variable and Physiological was considered as Independent Variable. The Hockey playing ability was measured by composite score of three judges rating and Physiological variables were measured by physiological kit. To find out the significant relationship Pearson's Product Moment correlation and find out the joint contribution multiple correlations was used and find out prediction multiple regression equation was used. The level of significance was set at .05 levels.
Results: Hockey performance was found significantly correlated with Peak Flow Rate as well as Body Mass Index, at 0.05 level of significance and multiple correlation to Peak Flow Rate, Body Mass Index, Systolic Blood Pressure, Diastolic Blood Pressure and Resting Heart Rate are 0.817 and regression equation Y= 19.391 +.046 (Systolic Blood Pressure)-.086(Diastolic Blood Pressure)-.059 (Resting Heart Rate)+.004 (Peak Flow) -.467 (Body Mass Index).
