Author(s): Devanand B Sawarkar
The purpose of the study is to compare the motor fitness components of Volleyball and Handball players. Researcher hypothesized that, there might be significant differences in motor fitness components of Volleyball and Handball players. The present study is delimited to the 15 male Volleyball and 15 male Handball players of inter-collegiate level only. The age of the subjects ranged between 18-25 years. The study was delimited to the motor fitness components i. e. by using J.C.R. test. The sources for data, inter-collegiate Volleyball and Handball players, who participated in inter-collegiate tournaments and who appeared in the Sant Gadge Baba Amravati University, Amravati respective team trials. Simple Random Sampling (SRS) method was adopted for the selection of players. For collecting data the researcher administrated J. C. R. test i. e jumping measured by using standing broad jump for leg strength and recorded in inches, chin-ups measured by using chin-ups for shoulder strength and recorded in numbers, running measured by using 50 meter dash for speed and recorded in seconds. The data were collected on the selected subjects by administering the appropriate tests. The test was successfully administered with the help of assistants and under the supervision of guide. 'T' test was employed to determine the difference of volleyball and handball players for each variable independently. Significant difference observed in standing broad jump (t=2.763), 50 meter dash (t=2.292) of volleyball and football players but insignificant in chin-ups (t=0.250) in tabulated t-value of 2.048 at 0.05 level of confidence of 28 degree of freedom.
