Sports is still a subject in the state list of the constitution so that we can have a national sports and physical education law, which will facilitate better co-ordination and monitoring of sports and physical education activity in the country. There is also an urgent need to develop sports awareness and sports consciousness amongst our people. Physical education is one of the most important factors in promoting health and longevity. Physical education and sports increase the scope of the human ability and enriches the life of the individual and that of the society as a whole. The teachers, students, parents, and faculties for creating a much needed sports culture on the country we need to orient our minds towards sports and physical education. The physical education teacher and experts here have a major role to play on this exercise. The psychological aspects of sports are gaining attention at meeting of sport administrators representing all levels of competition. Administrators are aware the sport is no longer the only choice for young people. Their interests have broadened and they often choose the form of recreation other than sport, to help and make sport more attractive to prospective athletes. Coaches need to learn about the psychology of coaching and sport. This study would help to find out the differences in personality traits and self concept between B.P.Ed and M.P.Ed athletes. If the study proves that there are differences in personality among players, then it might be correlated with performance.
