Abstract

The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of yogic practice and plyometric training on selected coordinative abilities of inter collegiate Netball players. To achieve this purpose, forty five inter collegiate netball players selected from Meenakshi Ramasamy Physical Education College, Ariyalur District, the subjects were divided into three equal groups of fifteen each. The selected variables for the present study are coordinative abilities namely differentiation ability, space orientation ability and complex reaction ability. The following standardized tests were used to measure the coordinative abilities namely backward ball throw, numbered medicine ball run, ball rolling test. Experimental group ‘A’ underwent Yogic practice and Experimental group ‘B’ underwent plyometric training programme for a period of twelve weeks. The control group was not exposed to any specific training apart from their regular routine. All the subjects were tested on selected variables, before and after the treatment. The collected data from the three groups prior to and after the experimental treatment on selected coordinative abilities were statistically analyzed by using the concept of analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post test means was found to be significant, Scheffe’s test was followed as a post hoc test to determine which of the paired means difference was significant.  The result reveals that there was s significant difference between the groups of inter collegiate Netball players.
