Total 416 boys (208 = Tribal community and rest 208=General community) were selected as subjects by the random sampling technique. The age of the subjects was ranged from 13 years to 16 years which were divided into four groups according to their age and categories into two i.e. TB for Tribal boys and GB for General boys. The Physical variables of the subjects such as Agility, Power, Speed, Strength, Coordination and Psychosocial profile such as Social Maturity, Adjustment Ability & Attitude were considered as criterion measure. The measuring procedure for the physical variable tests such as zigzag run, standing broad jump, 50-meter dash, six-pound medicine ball put were followed by Barrow & McGee- 1979 and wall pass test were followed by Johnson & Nelson-2007. Psychosocial tests were conducted by Rao’s Social Maturity Scale, Adjustment Ability by Sinha and Singh and Attitude by S. L. Chopra.
