Author(s): PK Kamalakannan and Dr. R Desingurajan
Abstract:
Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the effect of game specific skill training on selected physical variables among basketball players.
Methods: Forty two men basketball players (N=40) were randomly selected as a participant from Chennai district, Tamil Nadu. The participants were aged between 17 to 25 years. The selected participants were randomly assigned into two equal groups of 21 each, such as game specific skill training group and control group. The game specific skill training group underwent their training programme for three days a week for six weeks of training, each section lasted 60min. The control group did not participate in any kind of special training programme apart from the daily physical activities. The speed and agility were measured by 100m sprint and shuttle run. The subjects of the two groups were tested on selected physical variables prior to and immediately after the experimental period.
Statistical Procedure: The collected data were analyzed statistically through analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) to find the significant difference. The 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance difference.
Conclusions: The results indicated that the basketball players receiving the game specific skill training and reported speed and agility was improved compared to the control group. These findings seem to suggest that specific skill training programs may be a promising approach to promoting speed and agility among basketball players.
