AUTHOR(S): Mukesh Kumar
ABSTRACT: The purpose of the study is to see the relationship between various anthropometric predictors with performance in hockey. Another objective of the study was to identify the essential predictor variable related to performance in hockey. To fulfil the purpose, the investigator has collected the data on 148 male hockey players from the north zone of India. The age of the samples was in between 12-14 years. After collecting data, the SPSS 22 version was employed to extract the information from raw data by using multiple correlation. The result of the study conferred that there is no relationship between anthropometric predictors and performance. Hence the null hypothesis fails to reject. Based on the result, it is concluded that anthropometric variables are independent of field hockey performance.
