Author(s): Rajdeep Kaur and Dr. Amarpreet Singh
The purpose of the study was to compare the selected anthropometric measurements of offensive and defensive inter university female hockey players. Forty eight (N=48) female hockey players, 16 each from Punjabi University Patiala, GNDU Amritsar, and Punjab University Chandigarh were selected as subjects for this study who had participated in North- Zone all India interuniversity hockey championship during session, 2016-2017. Only those hockey players were tested who played at offensive and defensive positions during the championship. Age of the subjects ranged between 18-25 years. All the measurements were taken with standard equipment’s. The‘t’ test was applied to examine the significance of mean differences between interuniversity offensive and defensive female hockey players. From the findings of the study, it was concluded that there were significant differences between offensive and defensive players in mid-thigh girth as the calculated value of 7.10 was greater than the table value of 1.679. But in Biceps skin fold, triceps skin fold, Sub scapular skin fold, Iliac crest skin fold, height, sitting height, Upper arm length, Fore arm length, Hand length, Leg length, Weight, Calf girth, Waist girth, Arm relaxed girth, and Arm flexed girth defensive hockey players did not differ significantly with offensive players as the calculated ‘t’ values of 0.46, 0.17, 0.19, 0.42, 0.44, 0.29, 0.08, 0.41, 0.19, 0.17, 0.008, 0.0002, 0.009, 0.006, 0.0007 respectively were less than the table value of 1.679 required to be significant at 0.05 level.
