Author(s): Dr. Anu Sharma and Deepak Hooda
From a physiological perspective, it is clear that the shorter middle-distance events have large anaerobic and aerobic endurance contributions (especially the 800m and 1500m), due to the large aerobic component required for success, despite the high running velocity which must involve significant anaerobic energy (Brandon, 1995; Snell, 1990). The aim of present study is to compare the various games players on the basis of age groups with regard to their Eight hundred meters run endurance. To accomplish the study, purposive sampling technique has been used. The sample of the study has been selected from the various games. For this purpose, total 180 male players were selected as subjects. Six age group categories were profiled and 30 players were selected from each age group category. The selected subjects were between the age group of 10 to 15 years. The subjects were selected from the Bhiwani district of Haryana state. Eight hundred meters run endurance test was applied to measure the anaerobic and aerobic endurance. The timings were registered in m/sec. To find out the significant difference among different age groups, independent sample ‘t’ test was applied through Statistical Product and Service Solutions (SPSS) version 20.0. The level of significance was set at 0.05.The results of the present study shows that significant difference was found between the age group of ten and eleven year, thirteen and fourteen year players while no significant difference was found between the eleven and twelve year, twelve and thirteen year, fourteen and fifteen year age group players with regard to their eight hundred meters run endurance.
