Purpose of the study is to find out the relationship of selected motor fitness variables towards the playing performance of an B division hockey players.206 male state hockey players were participated as a sample for the study. Different physical fitness components (speed, strength, endurance, flexibility and agility) were measured of samples. Standard procedure was followed to measure the motor fitness variables. To measure the playing performance while samples playing the match three experts of hockey were asked to assess the skills of the player in match situation and give their marks for 50 each. After that all three experts marks were added and averaged to get the marks of playing performance. To measure the speed, shuttle run and endurance standard stop watch was used to record the time while to measure the explosive power and flexibility steel tape was used. Karl-Pearson’s co-efficient of correlation technique was used to find out the relationship between motor fitness measurement and skill performance (playing performance). Strength, flexibility and agility are the variables which were found significant co relationship with skill performance. The implication of results are discussed.
