Relationship study between selected anthropometric measurements and playing ability of volleyball players
Author(s): Sukanta Goswami
Abstract:
The main purpose of the study was to determine the significant relationship in between selected anthropometric measurement and playing ability of volleyball players. 20 male Volleyball players who represented the state of Tripura in the National Tournaments of Volleyball were randomly selected as subjects for the purpose of the study. The age of the subjects was ranging from 18 to 24 years. The study was restricted to volleyball players who represented the State of Tripura in the National Tournaments as well as anthropometric measurements were restricted to body weight, standing height, arm length, leg length, chest girth, thigh girth and calf girth. Body Weight was measured by weighing machine at least clothes and score was recorded in Kilogram. Standing height was measured the maximum distance from the floor to the highest point on the head by use of anthropometer and score was recorded in centimeter. Arm length was measures the distance between acromial all across to dactyl- ion (from shoulder to the tip of middle finger) by use of anthropometer and score was recorded in centimeter. Leg length was measured the maximum distance from the floor to the highest point of trochanterion by use of anthropometer and score was recorded in centimeter. Chest girth was measured the circumference of chest at the level of mesosternale in standing position with arm relaxed by sides by use of anthropometric tape and score was recorded in centimeter. Thigh girth measurement was taken at the level midway between the trochanterion and tibiale laterale sites by use of anthropometric tape and score was recorded in centimeter. Calf (maximum) girth was measured from the lateral aspect of the leg by use of anthropometric tape and score was recorded in centimeter. The playing ability of the volleyball players was measured by use of five point rating scale (highest point is 5 and lowest point is 1) was discovered by Biggs in 2003 and The score on the playing ability being the middle score of the three experts, ratings were considered accurate enough for the purpose of the study. To determine the significant relationship between selected anthropometric measurements and playing ability of volleyball players the Pearson’s product co-efficient of correlation statistical technique was employed. Level of significance was set at 0.05. The findings of the study showed that there were no significant relationship in between selected anthropometric measurement and playing ability of volleyball players.
