Author(s): Dr. Shrikant S Mahulkar
The purpose of the present study was to find out the effect of plyometric training on skill performance in Soccer players. The participants selected for the present study were those who have participated at inter-university level competitions. For the current study soccer players from two different colleges of Sant Gadge Baba Amravati University were selected during the session of 2016-17. The age of the subjects ranged from 18 to 25 years. The 50 subjects were randomly assigned to two groups, one experimental groups and one control group consisting of 50 subjects each. To measure the skill performance by McDonald Soccer Skill Test was use. Six weeks of plyometric training were given to the experimental group. The subjects were involved in regular training in soccer playing during their practice period. Then training was given for five days per week (alternative days). In order to test the effect of training, the collected data from all the two groups before and after experimentation on skill performance of soccer players were statistically analyzed by using ‘t’ test. In all the cases the level of confidence is fixed at 0.05 to test the significance. Result: Significant effect found that skill performance between pre and post-test experimental group and no significant difference in control group. Insignificant difference in skill performance between experimental and control group of before test but significant effect found that skill performance between experimental and control group of after test.
