Physical fitness assessment among different level of football players: An exploratory study
Author(s): Dr. Satinder Kumar
Abstract:
A study using a sample of 80 healthy, football (n = 80) players participated in the assessment of physical fitness in order to find out the difference between Inter-College and Inter-University Participation. Agility was calculated by measuring 20 Yard Agility Run Test and recorded to the nearest 1/100th second. Balance was calculated by Stork Balance Stand Test and recorded to the nearest 1/100th second. Speed was calculated by measuring 30 Yard Dash Test and recorded to the nearest 1/100th second. Explosive Strength was calculated by measuring Vertical Jump Test and recorded to the nearest centimetres. However, Flexibility was calculated by measuring Sit and Reach Test and recorded to the nearest centimetres. Convenience sampling (also known as availability sampling) is a specific type of non-probability sampling method that relies on data collection from population members who are conveniently available to participate in study were utilized for the purpose of this study. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS for Windows, version 20.0. Data were for analyzing differences of means. A p value ≤ 0.05 was taken statistically significant. Agility: It is concluded that the means of Inter-College and Inter-University are significantly different at p < 0.05. Balance: It is concluded that the means of Inter-College and Inter-University are not significantly different at p ˃ 0.05. Speed: It is concluded that the means of Inter-College and Inter-University are significantly different at p < 0.05. Explosive Strength: It is concluded that the means of Inter-College and Inter-University are significantly different at p < 0.05. Flexibility: It is concluded that the means of Inter-College and Inter-University are significantly different at p < 0.05.
