Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 6 week plyometric training program on maximal vertical jumping height of collegiate level soccer players. To achieve the purpose of this study, 30 students selected from C.S.J.M. University, Kanpur were selected as subjects. Their age were ranged between 20 to 25 years. The selected subjects were randomly divided into two groups each group consists of 15 students, namely experimental group “A‟ and control group “B‟. Plyometric training for 6 week was assigned to experimental group “A‟ and control group “B‟ does not undergone any type of experimental training. All the training programmes were scheduled for three days per week for a period of 6 week. The maximal vertical jumping height measured by the help of standing vertical jump. The data collected from the plyometric training group “A‟ and control group “B‟ on the criterion measures i.e., maximal vertical jumping height was statistically analyzed by the application of analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The mean of pretest for plyometric training group (50.06) and control group (49.53). Further the mean of post test for plyometric training group (54.86) and control group (49.73). The result of ANCOVA shows that there was significant effect of 6 week plyometric training group maximal vertical jumping height of collegiate level soccer players. In the light of finding it is conclude that plyometric training improves maximal vertical jumping height of collegiate level soccer players.
