The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of small area games and yogic practices onselected stress and aggression of intercollegiate male volleyball players. To achieve the purpose of the study, 72 intercollegiate male valleyball players from Vivekananda college, Agasteeswaram, Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, Annai Velankanni College Kannayakumari and Sivanthi Aditanar College, Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu were selected as subjects their age ranged from (17 to 21 years as per the college records). They were divided in to 3 equal groups in which each group consisted of 24 subjects (n=24). Group – I and Group – II were the experimental groups such as small area games and yogic practices – SAGYP and small area games Group yogic practices – SAGYP and Group – III served as control group (CG).Group I and II under went training for a period of 12 weeks. The following are the criterion variables: Small area games yogic practices and control group. They were tested using standared test methods and instruments before and after training. The collected data were analysed using paired sample ‘t’ test and ANCOVA. When ever, the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post – test was found to be significant, scheffe’s post hoc test was applied. The level of confidence was fixed at 0.05 level. The findings of the study showed that there were significant improvements in the variables namely small area games, yogic practices and control group time between pre test and post-test of the 2 experimental groups. Better improvement was found in small area games with yogic practices group. There was no significant difference in any of the selected variables between pre test and post-test of the control group.
