ASSESSMENT OF AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC PROFILES OF YOUNG SOCCER PLAYERS
Dr. Laishram Thambal Singh
The first objective of the study was to analyze the significant improvement of VO2max and anaerobic power of young soccer players, and second objective was to determine the profiles of VO2max and anaerobic power of young soccer players. Sixty (N1=60) young soccer players between 12 to 14 years of age those were participating the regular soccer training, randomly selected from the different schools and academies of Manipur state. To determine the VO2max and anaerobic power, 12 minutes Run-Walk test and Sargent Jump- Lewis Nomogram was administered respectively. The data were collected in two phases on the same subjects in an intervening duration of three months (1st and 2nd test) and developed total 120 data (N2=120). By employing the paired sample „tâ€Ÿ test, the result showed that there were significant improvement on VO2max and anaerobic power of young soccer players during the course of three months soccer training. Lastly, the mean profiles of VO2max and anaerobic power of young soccer players were observed as M = 43.63±3.57 and M = 64.25±13.70 respectively.
