Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to find out the difference of Self-efficacy between Sprinters, Throwers and Jumpers of Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, Punjab, India. A Cross-Sectional study was conducted on sixteen (N=16) male Sprinters, Throwers and Jumpers (age 21-26 years). All the subjects were informed about the objective and protocol of the study. Purposive sampling was used keeping in view of administrative feasibility. The participants participated in the study voluntarily and all the subjects were informed about the objective and protocol of the study. The General Self-efficacy scale developed by Schwarzer and Jerusalem (1995) was used to measure self-efficacy of athletes. This study’s data analysis procedure was divided into two sections: - Section-1: A descriptive analysis was used to describe the data distribution. Section-2: The hypothesis testing with ANOVA was included in the second section. The data was statistically analyzed using SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) version 17 to draw conclusions. For testing hypotheses, the level of significance was set at 0.05. Sprinter had a mean value of 30.1429 and Thrower had a mean value of 22.6000. This shows that the Sprinter group performed better than Thrower group on Self-Efficacy. The Sprinter had a mean value of 30.1429 and Jumper had a mean value of 33.5000. This demonstrates that the Jumper group performed better than the Sprinter group on Self-Efficacy. The Thrower group had a mean value of 22.6000, whereas Jumper had a mean value of 33.5000. This reveals that the Jumper group performed better than the Thrower group on Self-Efficacy.
