Comparison Differentiation Ability of Female Soccer Players of Uttar Pradesh State at Different Achievements Levels

Biswajit Sardar


The purpose of the study was to find out the Comparison of Orientation ability of Soccer players of excellent of achievement among National, District and Sub-division levels. The subjects selected for the study was 90 (n = 30) Female Soccer players (i.e. National = 30, District = 30 , and Sub-division = 30 ) of Uttar Pradesh, India. They were selected randomly, who were physically as well as skillfully strong. The test administered at different play grounds, where all the equipments are available and test can easily be conducted. The data was analyzed by using of LSD for mean comparison on Differentiation ability among Sub-division, District,and National level of Soccer players. The level of significance chosen for testing the hypothesis was set at 0.05 level of significance. It was assessed by using ‘Backward Medicine Ball Throw Test’ and was recorded in points. On the basis of results significant difference in Differentiation Ability among three levels of Soccer players i.e. Sub-division, District,  and National, since the f value observed was 5.882, which is much higher than the criterion value 1.34 required being significant. Post-hoc(LSD) mean comparison reveals significant performance difference between three groups of differentiation ability. Significant difference was found in case of Sub-division & District level, Sub-division and State as the mean difference was greater than the critical difference.  No significant difference was found in case of District and State level as the mean difference was less than the critical value of 0.28 at 0.05 level of significance.
