Author(s): Prakash M Chopade
Abstract:
The aim of this study was to examine the relationships between anthropometry and physical fitness variables in softball players. Thirty softball players who were studying in colleges affiliated to R.T.M. Nagpur University, Nagpur those who have represented intercollegiate tournaments were randomly selected as subjects for this investigation. The age of the participants were ranged from 18-20 years. Physical fitness was measured with the help of AAHPERD Test. The row scores of each item were converted into composite score and then correlated with each selected anthropometric variables. The Pearson Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation was used to find out the relationship between anthropometry and physical fitness variables in softball players. The level of significance was fixed at 0.05 levels. We concluded that six physical variables- muscular strength, muscular endurance, agility, explosive strength, speed, cardio-vascular endurance were found to be significantly correlated to standing height, sitting height, leg length and hand length where body weight was found to be not significantly correlated to physical fitness variables.
