Author(s): Dr. Sahadev Mandrekar
The purpose of the present study was to compare the selected physical fitness variables of professional college football and cricket players who actively participate in inter collegiate sports tournaments. Total sixty four (64) (32 from Football and 32 from cricket) male players from various colleges of Goa were selected for this study. Their age ranged between 19-24 years. AAHPER youth physical fitness test was utilized to measure selected physical fitness components. It was hypothesized that no significant difference would be found between selected physical fitness variables for football and cricket players. For analysis of the data Mean & SD were calculated and to examine the significance difference between the group mean of different physical fitness variables, ‘T’ test was applied, and level of confidence was set at .05 levels. Study concluded that significant difference found between the means of selected physical fitness variables such as speed and agility (shuttle run), explosive strength of legs (SBJ), speed of lower extremities (50mt. dash) and explosive strength, cardio-vascular endurance (12 min run & walk) and no significant difference found between the means of muscular strength (dynamic) and endurance of arm & shoulders (Pull-ups), muscular strength and endurance of trunk (bent-knee sit ups) of college level football and cricket players.
