Author(s): Alok Gupta and Dr. Vipendra Singh Parmar
Abstract:
The primary objective of this research was to conduct a comparative analysis of sports competition anxiety among male players participating in college-level Basketball and Weightlifting. To achieve this goal, a sample of sixty participants, comprising thirty each from Basketball and Weightlifting, was randomly selected for the study. The age of the participants ranged between 18 to 25 years. The instrument employed for measuring sports competition anxiety was the Sports Competition Anxiety Test (SCAT), developed by Martin Rainer in 1990. The SCAT questionnaire was administered to the subjects 30 minutes prior to the commencement of the competition. The hypothesis posited for this study asserted that there would be no substantial difference in sports competition anxiety levels between Basketball and Weightlifting players. To scrutinize the data, an independent "t" test was employed, with the predetermined level of significance set at 0.05. The mean score obtained by Basketball players was 22.50, whereas Weightlifting players scored an average of 19.50. The computed "t" value of 3.95 indicated a noteworthy disparity between the anxiety levels of Basketball and Weightlifting players. It is noteworthy that the calculated "t" value of 3.95 exceeded the tabulated "t" value of 1.675, affirming the statistical significance of the observed difference.
