Abstract:
The aim of this study was to compare the body composition between of volleyball and korfball players. In this study inter collegiate volleyball and korfball players were selected from Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand. In this study, 40 players were selected as subjects, including 20 volleyball and 20 korfball players. In this study to find out the body composition of the subjects A test developed by J. V.G. A. Durnin and J. Vommersley (1974) was used in which skin fold calipers were tested at four sites i.e. biceps, triceps, sub scapular and supra-iliac and the score was recorded in millimeters. The t-test was applied to examine the difference in mean scores between volleyball and korfball players. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The present study concluded that there is a significant difference in body composition between volleyball and korfball players. Body height of volleyball players was found to be higher than that of korfball players, body fat content of volleyball players was found to be less than that of korfball players, Absolute Body Fat of volleyball players was found to be less than that of korfball players, but no positive difference was found in lean body weight and body weight. On the basis of the results obtained, it can be said that the training given to volleyball players, in that training more emphasis would be on jumping more level, due to which their body composition is good. It has been suggested by researchers that korfball players should be given plyometric training so that their body composition can be corrected.
