AUTHOR(S): Sabzar Ahmad Lone and Aftab Ahmad Jan
The purpose of this study was to compare Sportsmen and Non Sportsmen on their levels of stress. The present study is the descriptive survey method. Total numbers of 100 Sportsmen and Non Sportsmen were selected as the samples for the study purposively from the 10 Secondary Schools of Shopian District of Kashmir. In which 50 were Sportsmen and 50 Non Sportsmen. For the collection of data the researcher administered the R.S Eliot’s (1994) Stress Scale Test. Data of stress level of Sportsmen and Non Sportsmen was compared by using t-test. Results shows, that the mean and standard deviation scores of Sportsmen and Non Sportsmen on stress are 38.80 (5.76) & 39.96 (6.79) respectively. The calculated ‘t’ of stress level between Sportsmen and Non Sportsmen is 0.92 which is not statistically significant at 0.05 level of significance. The result shows that there is no significant difference between the stress level of Sportsmen and Non Sportsmen, thus the null hypothesis was accepted. In the stress level, we observe that Sportsmen got good results as compared to Sportsmen and Non Sportsmen. Researcher observed that the means scores of stress showed that Non Sportsmen have high degree of stress level than Sportsmen. Finally researcher concluded that Non sportsmen were more stressed as compare to sportsmen. Thus from the study we can say that physical activity plays a very vital role in decreasing the stress level.
