Effect of high intensity training on sprinting speed of soccer players
Author(s): Anshul Katiyar and Dr. Ajit Kumar
The present study has been conducted in order to determine the effect of high intensity training on sprinting speed of under-16 age group football players. The participants for the study were twenty one male football players of 15to 16 years of age, from Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools. The participants were selected on the basis of purposive sampling technique. The training was given for a period of 8 weeks. After taking a pre- test of sprinting speed, the experimental group was trained up to four days in a week. Training schedule includes short football sprints and small sided games focused over speed as its motor component. The selected variable sprinting speed was assessed on the performance of participants in 30meter sprint and time was recorded as the score. The pre- and post-test were conducted. After the collection of data, paired t- test was used as the statistical toot to assess the data. Data analysis showed the mean of pre-test and post-test scores for group as (4.47sec) and (4.21sec) respectively. The findings of the study indicate marked improvements of high intensity speed work out on sprinting speed of subjects. Significant differences of means in pre-test and post-test were seen as the calculated t value obtained (11.29) was greater than the tabulated t value at 0.05 level of significance.
