To Compare the Skilled based Physical Fitness Such as Agility, Power and Speed between the Young College Male Basketball and Football Players
Background: Football and basketball players need good fitness, flexibility, power, strength, agility, endurance and vertical jumping ability to achieve sporting targets. Physical fitness is important for top class performance in sports and also for injury prevention.
Objective: To compare the skilled based physical fitness such as Agility, Power and Speed between the Young college male Basketball and Football players.
Method: 60 players (only males), playing football and basketball since 1 year, age between 17-25 years from different colleges in Surat and Bardoli were included for the study. From these 30 players were football players and 30 players were basketball players. All players had filled up the informed consent form and the self-administered questionnaire. The physical fitness tests were carried out such as Illinois Agility Test (IAT), 20 meter sprint, and Vertical Jump Height (VJH) for all 60 players. The comparison was done between the football and the basketball players for each of the physical fitness tests.
Results: All statistical analysis was performed using SPSS version 16. The independent t-test was used for comparing means between two groups. Results were considered to be significant at p<0.05 and confidence interval was set at 95 %. Significant differences was found between players for IAT and VJH with p=0.000 (p<0.05). There was no significant difference found between players for 20 Meter Sprint Test with p=0.590.
Conclusion: Agility was better in football players than basketball players. VJH was more in basketball players than football players. There was no difference found in 20 meter sprint test between basketball and football players.
