Author(s): Dr. P Selvakumar
The purpose of the study was to assess the effect of agility ladder training on aerobic endurance and anaerobic endurance among football players. To achieve the purpose of the study, thirty college football players from Aditanar Educational Institutions, Tiruchendur, Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, India were selected as subjects. They have participated in the intercollegiate tournaments for their respective, affiliated university of Manonmaniam Sundaranar University intercollegiate football tournaments and Tamil Nadu Physical Education and Sports University intercollegiate football tournaments. Their age ranged from 18 to 25 years. The thirty subjects were divided into two groups of fifteen (15) subjects each. Group I underwent Agility Ladder Training (ALT), group II acted as control they did not participating any activities. Experimental group have training programmes for 12 weeks consisting of 60 morning sessions in addition to their regular programmes in their curriculum design. For that purpose, the aerobic endurance and anaerobic endurance selected as dependent variables for this study. Aerobic endurance and anaerobic endurance was assessed by yo-yo intermittent recovery test and 300 yard shuttle test. Since no effort was taken to pair the groups in any way and therefore to eliminate the variation in pre-test mean. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was applied as statistical tool for the present study. Significant at 0.05 level of significance. The data were examined by applying SPSS measurable package in the computer. The results of the study shows that Agility Ladder Training group have improved their aerobic endurance and anaerobic endurance compared with control group.
