The purpose of the Study was to find out the effect of plyometric ballistic training and basketball drills on leg explosive power among school level basketball players. To achieve the purpose of the study, sixty (n=60) School level basketball players from CMC school, Vellor, they were selected as subjects at random and their age’s ranged between 16 to 18 years. The selected participants were randomly (simple random sample) assigned to one of four groups of fifteen (n=15) each, such as experimental group I, experimental group II, experimental group III and control group. The group I (n=15) underwent plyometric training, and group II (n=15) underwent ballistic training, group III (n=15) underwent Basketball drill for a duration of 12 weeks and the number of sessions per week is confined to three days, in addition to the regular schedule and group IV (n=15) acted as control. Leg explosive power was selected as dependent variables for this study. The following independent variables were selected for this study such as plyometric training, ballistic training, and Basketball drill. The pre-test and post-test randomized control group design was used as experimental design. The collected data from the four groups prior to and immediately after the training programme on selected criterion variables were statistically analyzed with analysis of co-variance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference between experimental and control groups. Whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted test was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post-hoc test to find out paired mean difference. In all the cases 0.05 level of significant was fixed to test the hypothesis. The plyometric training, ballistic training, Basketball drill training had significantly improved the participants leg explosive power. The plyometric training had significantly outperformed than ballistic training, Basketball drill training on the participant’s leg explosive power.
