AUTHOR(S): Kiran, Harmandeep Singh, Dr. Karanjit Singh, Dr. Kanwar Mandeep Singh and Sartaj Singh Chhina
The purpose of the study was to analyse and compare the anxiety and sports motivation among female gymnastics, softball and volleyball players from colleges of Punjab. To achieve the purpose of the study, 60 players (20 players from each game) who represented their colleges for inter-college tournaments were selected as subjects. The age of the subjects ranged from 18 to 28 years. Anxiety of the players was assessed by using the sports competitive anxiety test (SCAT) developed by Marten et al. and motivation was assessed by using the sports motivation scale (SMS) developed by Pelleiter et al. One way analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed that there were significant differences on the variable motivation (p<0.05), and anxiety (p<0.05) among the softball, gymnastics and volleyball players. Softball players had significantly greater values for motivation and various sub-variables of motivation than the volleyball and gymnastics players. The softball players also had significantly lower anxiety level as compared to volleyball and gymnastics players.
