The ability to reach a high performance, skill related to particular game is essential for basketball players to excel in competitions. The purpose of this study was to study the effect of the cluster training and Pilate training on skill performance of school basketball players. To achieve the purpose of the study 30 school basketball players were randomly selected from Amirta Vidyalayam School, Coimbatore and their age were ranged between 13 and 17 years. The subjects were randomly assigned to two equal groups (n=15). All the subjects were divided in to two groups with 15 subjects each as experimental and control group. Group-I underwent Cluster training and Pilate training for a period of twelve weeks and group-II acted as control who did not participate in any special training other than the regular routine. The physical variables such as leg explosive power, flexibility were selected as dependent variables. Leg explosive power was tested by standing broad jump, flexibility was tested by sit and reach. Pre and post-test random group design was used for this study. The dependent ‘t’ test was applied to determine the difference between the means of two group. To find out whether there was any significant difference between the experimental and control groups. To test the level of significant of difference between the means 0.05level of confidence was fixed. The result of the study shows that, there was a significant improvement takes place on leg explosive power, flexibility of school basketball players due to the effect of twelve weeks of Cluster training and Pilate training and also concluded that, there was a significant difference exists between experimental and control groups on Leg explosive power, flexibility. The control group did not improve the selected criterion variables. This protocol can be recommended to coaches for athletes or individuals as this type of training can be beneficial for increasing performance.
