Shubhankar Roy, Dr. Atanu Ghosh

Abstract


The purpose of the study was to compare the selected physical tness components between state and
national level football referees. In this investigation fteen (n=15) active male state level football referees
and fteen (n=15) national level football referees were selected as subjects from Calcutta Referees Association (CRA) of West
Bengal, India. The age of the subjects ranged between 24 to 30 years. For the criteria of the present study two physical tness
variables were studied i.e. speed and endurance. Speed was measured by 40 meter run, where as endurance was measured by
interval run test. The obtained data was analyzed by descriptive statistics viz. mean, standard deviation, standard error of mean
and further independent 't' test was also used for generalizing the statistical signicant difference between state and national
level football referees. The result shows that, there was signicant difference found in endurance, while insignicant different
found in speed between state level and national level football referees.
