Abstract:
The study was to identify those prominent Anthropometric factors among national level women hockey players in Kerala. Total of 36 women Hockey players were selected for the study and the age of the subjects ranged from 17-25 years. The subjects were selected from SN College Kannur and SAI Kollam. Descriptive analysis were done on all the selected anthropometric variables namely; weight, height, sitting height, arm length, leg length, calf girth, thigh girth, ponderal index and crural index. In this study the principal component method was selected for the primary solution of factor analysis. Since there was very less study on anthropometric variables done on Hockey players, The scholar has undertaken this study to explore the importance of Anthropometric variables among Hockey players. The length factor (factor 1) comprises of height, arm length were heavily loaded items, the index factor (factor 2) which comprises the ponderal index was heavily loaded item, the another loaded factor of girth factor (factor 3) which comprising of thigh girth and calf girth were heavily loaded items among female hockey players.
The present study revealed that the length factor (factor 1) comprises of height, arm length were heavily loaded items, the index factor (factor 2) which comprises the ponderal index was heavily loaded item, the another loaded factor of girth factor (factor 3) which comprising of thigh girth and calf girth were heavily loaded items among female hockey players.
