Abstract:

The study was designed to construct norms for engineering college men hockey players. Hence players from all over the engineering colleges in Tamilnadu who fulfill these conditions were selected for the study. The data were collected from 714 engineering college men hockey players. The researcher in this study attempted to construct norms for the selected physical variables for engineering colleges between the age group of 18 and 25 using single group normative design. The data for the selected variables to construct norms were collected by administering the appropriate standard tests. Before administering the test, the purpose and procedure were explained to the subjects in detail. The data was assessed during competition period. After collecting the raw scores mean and standard deviation were computed. After calculating the mean and the standard deviation(s) the scores were converted into percentile scale and 6- sigma scale for developing final grade. In explosive power out of the seven hundred and fourteen players, 25 players were in excellent grade, 172 players were in very good grade, 329 players were in good grade, 163 players were in average grade and 25 players were in below average grade. In speed out of the seven hundred and fourteen players, 31 players were in excellent grade, 165 players were in very good grade, 313 players were in good grade, 181 players were in average grade and 24 players were in below average grade.
