The aim of the research is to investigate the effects of sports specific training with perceptual skill training and sports specific training on motor fitness components of male inter collegiate hockey players. To execute the investigation, forty five (N=45) College hockey players studying from different Colleges affiliated to Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai District, Tamil Nadu, India were randomly selected as subjects. They were divided randomly into three groups of fifteen each i.e. (n=15). Group-I participates in sports specific field training and perceptual skill training, Group-II in sports specific field training , Group-III in traditional training or Control group with their age ranging from 18-23 years. The Experimental groups participated in particular training period on alternate days for twelve weeks. For sports specific field training with perceptual skill training, the training period was restricted to alternate days (Monday, Wednesday and Friday)every week and the training period per week was also limited to three sessions. For sports specific field training the training period was restricted to alternate days (Tuesday Thursday and Saturday)every week and the training period per week was also limited to three sessions. The dependent variables designed for this research were speed and agility. All the three groups were tested on the speed and agility before and immediately after the experimental period. The data obtained from the experimental groups before and after the experimental period were statistically investigated with dependent “t”-test and Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). At any time the “F” ratio for adjusted post-test means was created to be significant. The Scheffe’s Post hoc test was used to fix the paired mean differences. The level of confidence was fixed at 0.05 level for all groups. The result of the research revealed that there was a significant improvement on Speed and Agility after the sports specific training with perceptual skill training, sports specific training and significant difference was created among the training groups on Speed and agility in favour of sports specific training with perceptual skill training.
