AUTHOR(S): Shashikumara KN and Dr. Apppanna M Gasti
ABSTRACT:
Purpose of the study is to find out the relationship of selected anthropometric variables towards the skill performance (playing performance) of B division hockey players. 206 B Division male state hockey players were participated as the samples for the study. Different sites (Height, weight, arm length, Biliocristal Shoulder width, Elbow width, Knee width, Chest circumference, Arm circumference, Calf circumference) were measured of samples. Standard procedure was followed to measure the anthropometric sites. To measure the skill performance (playing performance) while samples playing the match three experts of hockey were asked to assess the skills of the player in match situation and give their marks for 50 each. After that all three experts’ marks were added and averaged to get the marks of playing performance. Karl-Pearson’s co-efficient of correlation technique was used to find out the relationship between anthropometric measurement and playing performance. Very few anthropometric measurements found significant with skill performance. The implication of results are discussed.
