Author(s): Keshav Singh Yadav and Dr. Keshav Singh Gurjar
The purpose of this study the profile of Anthropometric Measurement among Inter University Football Players performance of defending skill on the basis of selected anthropometric measurements. Twenty (20) male attacker football players were selected as subjects for this study. The subjects were selected from Top four teams of west zone inter university players. Subjects were divided into three groups (each group consists of twenty players) on the basis of their position of play. The total number of subjects (N=20) Attackers footballers. The age levels of the subjects were ranged from 18 to 25 years. All the subjects belong to different social economic conditions. Selection of variables Anthropometric measurements Body weight, Standing height, Arm length Leg length, Fore-leg length. Thigh girth, Calf girth, Foot length. According to objectives of the study to gathering the data Analysis of descriptive statistics were used. (Mean Standard Deviation). Significant was set at 0.05. The results of the study have shown that was significance mean difference on body weight, standing height, Arm length, and leg length, fore leg length, and foot length, anthropometric measurements of attacker skill of football players. The main objective of present study was to describe the anthropometric variables of attackers in the game of football. The Data had been plotted on graph and descriptive statistics have been calculated for the purpose of describing the anthropometric variables of attackers. On the basis of findings of the study it was concluded that the body weight, standing height, arm length, leg length, fore leg length, thigh girth, calf girth and foot length of the attackers were ideal for the game of football and very less deviation was find from the mean value of all the anthropometric variables, which shows that the top four teams of interuniversity level players had almost same anthropometric characteristics to play the game of football and achieve high level performance.
