This study was designed to investigate effects of SAQ training on selected physical fitness parameters of Kabaddi Players. To achieve the purpose of the study (N=30) thirty college level men students selected from affiliated colleges of Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli, Tamilnadu, India were selected as subjects. Their age ranged in between 17 and 22 years. The subjects will be randomly assigned to two equal groups (N=15) namely experimental group and control group. The physical fitness parameters speed and agility were selected as dependent variable and it was measured by 50 m dash and 10x4 shuttle run respectively in seconds. The experimental group was subjected to SAQ training for weekly five days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday) at evening session for six weeks. Training was given in the evening session. The training session includes warming up and cool down. All day the workout lasted for 50 to 60 minutes approximately. During experimental period the control group was not be given any sort of training except their routine. Pre and post test were taken before and after the training period. After the compilation of proper data, it was statistically analyzed by using paired ‘t’ test to find out significant improvement if any. The level of significance was set at 0.05 for all the cases. It was concluded that the speed and agility were improved significantly due to influence of SAQ training.
