Sociometry method also serves as a powerful tool in lessening the communication gap and reducing conflict by helping the group to analyze, examine and evaluate its own dynamics. It can also be helpful in finding out the relevant group that requires therapy or training. The purpose of the present study was to compare the group cohesiveness between university level athletes and non-athletes groups. To determine the cohesiveness of a two small group. To find out if there is any difference in group cohesiveness of athletes and non-athletes groups. For the study total Twenty two (22) University level athletes students (11) and non-athletes students (11) were selected for the study based on the purposive sampling method. In this study causal comparative research design were used. The hypothesis selected for this study there was no significant deference in group cohesiveness of University level athletes and non-athletes groups. For this study socio-metric method (Moreno. J. 1934) was used to measure on group cohesiveness. For the analysis of the data socio-metric index was used. The socio-metric index of athletes group was 0.46 and non-athletes group was 0.36. The finding of this study proved that cohesiveness of athletes group has been found to be moderate cohesiveness and non-athletes group has been found to be low cohesiveness by using socio-metric method.
