The purpose of the present study was to study the efficacy of imagery training added with visual skills training on select coordinative abilities of Badminton players at school level. Visual skills in sport invariably needed to beginners and advanced learners in sport. In the game of Badminton the visual skills is serving as the basic requirements since a player has to eye focusing in learning skills, judging the speed of the ball, judging the height of the flight of the ball during serving and playing conditions and also to evaluate the spatial awareness. In addition to this, earlier studies proved that learning the physical skills along with imagery enhance the efficiency of the learner in concerned sports. To achieve this, as samples (N=129), students studying in schools were selected as samples in the age group of 12 to 14. As variables select coordinative abilities such as eye hand coordination and visual reaction time were selected. Selected variables were measured using standardizes tests. The present study is an experimental in nature pre-post random experiment group design was employed. Using the performance on overall playing ability samples (N=129), were further screened (N=64) and assigned randomly to experimental groups namely Visual Skills with Imagery Training group and Visual Skills alone consisting of 15 subjects each. Subjects of each group were treated with respective training program for about twelve weeks in alternate days. On completion of training program subjects of both groups were tested as such in the pre –test which was considered as post test score. Collected data were tested with paired t-test and analysis of covariance. The obtained results were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Visual skills training with imagery and visual skills training alone found to be significant in the performance of coordinative abilities. Visual skills with imagery training found to be efficiency in coordinative abilities compared to Visual skill training alone.
