Author(s): Abhay S Chandekar
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of aquatic training on agility, speed and cardio respiratory endurance among Kho-Kho players. To get these goal forty Kho-Kho players were randomly selected as participants. The subject’s age ranged between 18 and 25 years. The participants are categorized into two groups randomly viz. experimental group (N=15) and control group (N=15). The selected criterion variables Agility was assessed by 6 X 10 Meters Shuttle Run, speed was assessed by 50 yard dash and cardio respiratory endurance was assessed by twelve minute run and walk test (Cooper's Test). The aquatic training group underwent the experimental treatment for six weeks, five days per week and a session on each day with 60 minutes duration. Before and after examination information were collected pre and post six weeks of Aquatic training programme. The together information was analyzed using ‘t’ test. The means and standard deviations of both groups were calculated for agility, speed and cardio respiratory endurance for the before as well as after tests. ‘t’ test was used to study importance between testing experimental and control groups. Statistical importance was set at 0.05. All statistical tests were calculated using the Microsoft excel 2007. The results indicate that a significance difference between before and after test on cardio respiratory endurance. The result of the study reveals that due to the effect of six weeks of aquatic training programme of the subjects have increased mean score.
