	%X The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of
Aquatic and Land plyometric training on selected physical variables
in intercollegiate male handball players. To achieve this purpose of
the study, forty five handball players of Sardar Vallabhbhai National
Institute of Technology, Surat, Gujarat were selected as players at
random and their age ranged between 18 to 21 years. The selected
players were divided into three equal groups of fifteen players each.
Group I underwent Aquatic plyometric training, Group II underwent
Land plyometric training and Group III Control group for three days
per week for twelve weeks. Control Group did not participate in any
special training programme apart from their regular activities as per
their curriculum. The following physical fitness variables namely
speed; leg explosive power and agility were selected as dependent
variables. All the players of three groups were tested on selected
dependent variables prior to and immediately after the training
programme. The analysis of covariance was used to analyze the
significant difference, if any among the groups. Since, three groups
were compared, whenever the obtained ‘F’ ratio for adjusted posttest
was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test to find out the paired
mean differences, if any. The 0.05 level of confidence was fixed as
the level of significance to test the ‘F’ ratio obtained by the analysis
of covariance, which was considered as an appropriate. The result of
the study indicates due to Aquatic and Land plyometric training on
speed, explosive power, and agility has been improved significantly.
