A total of sixty players (N=60) male soccer players were selected at random from Calicut District, Kerala. The age of the selected soccer players was restricted to U-19. The variables selected for this study are personality traits and playing ability. To measure personality traits Eysenck’s Personality Questionnaire - Revised (EPQ-R) was used and playing ability of soccer players was assessed through subjective rating by coaches/experts. The collected data from the subjects were statistically analyzed using SPSS 20 and Pearson correlation was applied and the level of significance was tested at 0.05. It was concluded that positive correlation was found between psychoticism and playing ability, extraversion and playing ability and a negative correlation was found between neuroticism and playing ability among Kerala youth soccer players.
