AUTHOR(S): Keerthi Kumar M and Sundar Raj Urs
ABSTRACT:
The purpose of this study is to find out the effect of twelve weeks Plyometric Training on Performance of Basketball Players. To achieve the purpose 40 Male basketball players are selected randomly and the age group of the subject is ranged from 18-23 years. The subjects were divided into two equal groups of 20 each. The study was conducted on two groups of players. Group -I (n=20) called plyometric training group, and Group II (n=20) act as control group who have not taken part in any special training apart from regular basketball practice. After assigning the subjects into various groups the pre-test was conducted on the selected variables of Speed, agility, flexibility, explosive power, passing ability, dribbling ability, shooting ability. After completion of the pre-test, the subjects were trained with their respective training program. The training period was scheduled for Twelve weeks. Experimental Group-I (PTG) underwent a plyometric training programme, and control group-II (CG) did not practice any specific training. After 12 +weeks of the training period post test was conducted on the dependent variables of Speed, agility, flexibility, explosive power, passing ability, dribbling ability, shooting ability for the two groups. The analysis of covariance (T-TEST) was used to find out the significant differences if any, between the experimental group and control group on selected criterion variable. In all the cases, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as an appropriate. The result of the present study has revealed that there was a significant difference among the experimental and control group on shooting performance.
Results: The Plyometric training group significantly improved in (P<0.05) the selected variables of speed, agility, explosive power, passing ability, dribbling ability and shooting ability better than the Control groups.
