Author(s): Dr. Khushal J Alaspure
The purpose of the study was to compare and find out the relationship between somatotype and aspiration level of West Zone Inter University Female Kabaddi players. To achieve this purpose researcher had collected data on Female Kabaddi players participated in the West Zone Inter University Kabaddi (Women) Tournament 2019, Amravati out of total female Kabaddi players 30 players were selected randomly by observation method and 10 Endomorphy, 10 Mesomorphy and 10 Ectomorphy female Kabaddi players were selected by Carter and Heath Equation Method. The age was ranged between 18 to 25 years. Ten (10) anthropometric measurements from the various body parts were needed to calculate the anthropometric somatotype, like; height, weight, four skinfolds (triceps, sub scapular, supra Iliac and calf), two bone breadths (bicondylar humerus and femur), and two limb girths (upper arm and calf). Somatotype components (endomorphy, mesomorphy and ectomorphy) of the subjects were calculated according to Carter and Heath Equation method. To see the level of aspiration researcher has selected ‘The level of aspiration measure test’ which was constructed by Mahesh Bhargava and M. A. Shah were distributed to the players and the same were collected back after having filled by the players. To compare the each somatotypes components, viz. Endomorphy, Mesomorphy and Ectormorphy, in reference to Aspiration Level one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was applied. Result shows that there was significant difference in different somatotype female Kabaddi players in reference to aspiration level as obtained F-ratio was 4.425 which was higher than that of required tabulated ‘F’ value of 3.354 at .05 level of significance with (2,27) degree of freedom. Least significant difference (L.S.D.) was applied to assess the paired means difference among the different somatotype components it revealed that significant difference was found between the means of endomorphy and mesomorphy, endomorphy and ectomorphy, mesomorphy and ectomorphy, as the mean difference of above three was greater than the critical differences. The sequence of performance in all three groups was (4.92) mesomorphy > (3.78) endomorphy > (2.58) ectomorphy.
