The purpose of this study was to find out the impact of small area games and yogic practices on selected motor fitness variables of intercollegiate male volleyball players. To achieve the purpose of the study, 72 intercollegiate male volleyball players from Vivekananda college, Agasteeswaram, Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, Annai Velankanni College, Kanyakumari and Sivanthi Aditanar College, Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu were selected as subjects (17 to 21 from each college).They were divided into three equal groups in which each group consisted of twenty four subjects (n=24). Group – I and Group –II were the experimental groups such as impact of small area games and yogic practices – SAGYP and flexibility of Small area games Group yogic practices – SAGYP and Group – III served as control group (CG). Group I and II underwent training for a period of 12 weeks. The following are the criterion variables: Impact of small area games, yogic practices and control group. They were tested using Stan dared test methods and instruments before and after training. The collected data were analysed using paired sample t test and ANCOVA. Whenever, the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post – test was found to be significant, Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied. The level of confidence was fixed at 0.05 level. The findings of the study showed that there were significant improvements in the variables namely flexibility of small area games, yogic practices and control group time between pre-test and post-test of the two experimental groups. Better improvement was found in small area games with yogic practices group. There was no significant difference in any of the selected variables between pre-test and post-test of the control group.
