Mrs. Deepti Joshi
For the purpose of this study 55 female national level long jumpers were selected as a subject. The purposive sampling method was adopted to select the subjects for the study. Data was collected form 54th National Inter State Senior Athletic Championship held at Lucknow in June 2014, Federation Cup National Senior Athletic Championship held at NSNIS Patiala in September 2014, And All India Inter University Athletic Championship held at Moodbidri Mangalore in January 2015 after completion of long jump event during the competition and from coaching camps of above mentioned championships. Age group of athletes was 17 - 28 years. The test items selected for this study were coordinative abilities which were orientation ability, differentiation ability, balance ability, rhythm ability. The data on jumping performance along with coordinative abilities was examined by Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation in order to find out the relationship of jumping performance to each of the coordinative ability separately. Multiple Regression analysis was done in order to predict jumping performance on the basis of coordinative abilities. The analysis was done with the help of SPSS 16.0 software. The level of significance to check the relationship obtained by Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation was set at 0.05. Results of the study shows that significant relationship was found out between balance ability and rhythm ability with long jump performance in female long jumpers and no significant relationship was found out in orientation ability and differentiation ability with long jump performance.
Key Words: Coordinative Abilities, Long Jump, Explosive Power and Strength.
