Abstract

BACK GROUND: In West Bengal, scientific data on Kho-Kho players are very less. AIM: The aim of this study was to find out relationship between B.M.I and motor performance of the university Level Kho-Kho Player. METHODOLOGY:Study area Visva-Bharati University, West Bengal, India. Subjects 30 University level male Kho-Kho player from Visva-Bharati University were selected as subjects. The age of the subjects varied from 19 to 26 years. Criterion measures To measure Motor Performance, standing broad jump for explosive strength, zig-zag run for agility, 6 pound medicine ball put for upper body strength were used. Design It was a survey study. One time test was taken for both the components. Statistics The Mean, Standard deviation, Z-scale, T-scale and Pearson Product Moment Co-relation were used to find out the significant relationship between B.M.I & Motor Performance of the University level Kho-Kho players. RESULT: The Mean Height and weight was 162.53±5.56cm. and 56.93±4.57Kg respectively. The Mean B.M.I was 19.89 ± 1.30Kg/M², Standing Long Jump was 219.21 ± 17.53cm, Zig-Zag Run was 25.83±2.68second and 6 Pound Medicine Ball Put was 846.11 ± 41.14cm.. A significant relationship was found between B.M.I and Motor Performance of the University level Kho-kho Player. Interpretation:Bodymass may influence positively the leg and arm power of the Kho-Kho players. CONCLUSION: B.M.I and Motor Performance can be considered as two important criterion for the selection of Kho-Kho players for higher performance level.
