AUTHOR(S): K Boopathirajan and Dr. D Jim Reeves Silent Night
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of drop jump training on selected biomotor variables among football players. Thirty male football players from various colleges affiliated to Madurai Kamaraj University, from Madurai district, Tamilnadu, India, during the academic year 2017-2018 were selected as subjects, the age of the selected subjects were ranged from 18 to 23 years. The selected subjects were divided into two groups namely drop jump training group and control group, Group A underwent drop jump training for eight weeks of three days per weeks. The duration of training session in all the days were between one hour to one and half hour approximately, which included warm-up and warm-down. Group B acted as control group, who were not engaged in any special activities other than their daily routine. The data were collected from each subject before and after the training period and statistically analyzed by dependent‘t’ test which is used to find out the significant improvement on selected criterion variables and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference between the experimental and control groups on each variables separately. All the cases 0.05 level of confidence was fixed as a level of confidence to test the hypotheses. There was a significant improvement on speed, agility, Power and coordination due to the effects of the Drop Jump training among Football players. There was a significance difference between Drop Jump training group and control group on speed, agility, Power and coordination among Football players.
