Abstract

The purpose of the study was to compare skeletal breadth and skin fold tests between sports persons and non sports persons. To achieve the purpose of the study 15 sports persons and 15 non sports persons men students were selected from Ayya Nadar Janaki Ammal college, Sivakasi. The player’s age ranged from 18- 23 years. The skeletal breadth and skin fold tests were selected as criterion variables for thos study. Skeletal breadth were taken from bi- acromial, bi-cristal, bi-epicondylar femur were selected were selected, the skin fold tests were taken from triceps, sub scaular, medial calf. The experimental design for the study was static group comparison design. The data collected from the two groups on selected variables were statistically examined by independent ‘t’ test. In all cases 0.05 level was fixed as significant level to test the hypothesis. There was no significant difference between sports persons and non sports persons on skeletal breadth such as bi-acromial, bi-cristal, and bi-epicondylar femur. There was no significant difference between sports persons and non sport persons on skin fold test such as triceps, sub scapular, and medial calf.
