The identification of physical characteristics in a sport modality contributes to its success and enables to spot differences among athletes of different modalities, which is of great interest for both sport coaches and scientists. Sports performance is based in a complex and intricate diversity of variables, which include physical (general and specific conditions), psychological (personality and motivation) and body (body morphology, anthropometry and body composition) factors. The relationship between morphological variables and sports performance is the object of study of anthropometry and is an important element to be analyzed. In view of above facts the present study was an investigation on Anthropometric Measurements and Performances of High School Kho-Kho and Kabaddi players of Kodagu and Dakshina Kannada districts. The study aims to analyze anthropometric measurements like body weight, height, shoulder grith, arm length, leg length and circumferences (thigh, calf and relaxed arm) of high school kho-kho and kabaddi players of Dakshina Kannada districts. Further the comparison of anthropometric measurements of Kho-Kho and Kabaddi players was done.
