Impact of stance width on field hockey goalkeeping performance in penalty stroke
Author(s): Kalaiselvan R and Dr. P Rajinikumar
The purpose of the study was to find out the impact of stance width on goalkeeping performance in penalty stroke in field hockey. To achieve the purpose of this study, ten Inter-Collegiate goalkeepers were selected as subjects from Chennai and age group was ranged from 19 to 25 years. The stance width and knee angle in the penalty stroke position were selected as independent variables. The overall penalty stroke performance of the goalkeeper was measured using the 10 point scale which consists of five penalty strokes. Each goalkeeper was given five trials only. The successful trials of each goalkeeper were digitized and analysed by taking the mean values. The goalkeepers preferred stance width and the knee angle also was measured by using KINOVEA software. Canon EOS 600D and SONY HDR-XR550E camera was positioned on a camera tripod 1.50m off the ground 6.40 m directly in front of the goalkeeper and 5.00m directly perpendicular to the goalkeeper. The collected data were statistically analysed by using Pearson product moment correlation and the level of significance was fixed at 0.05 level. It was concluded that the stance width had a significant relationship with goalkeeping performance in penalty stroke position in field hockey.
