Effect of Perceptual Skill Training on Development of Selected Motor Fitness Components of Inter- Collegiate Women Volleyball Players


The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of perceptual skill training on development of selected motor fitness components of inter- collegiate women volleyball players. To achieve these purpose 30 female college students were studying in periyar university college of arts and science, Mettur Dam, Salem, Tamilnadu. The subjects were selected on a random basis and were divided into two equal groups. Such as experimental group and control group. Each group consist of 15 subjects. Group-I underwent perceptual skill training (PST) and group-II acted as control group (CG), they didn’t take part in any specific activities. The ages of the subjects were ranged from 18 to 22 years. The training session were conducted five days a week over a period of eight weeks. The selected motor fitness components for this study are: Speed, agility and leg explosive power. The data were collected by using standardized tools. Initial reading has been taken for both experimental and control groups and the readings have been carefully recorded. After completion of ten weeks training period, the post test was conducted for both experimental and control groups and the final readings have been recorded carefully. The collected data were analyzed statistically by using dependent ‘t’ test. In all the cases, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance. The results of the study show that experimental group shows better improvement on selected motor fitness components when compared to control groups.
