KINEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF HIGH DRIVE IN SOCCER
An effort has been made through this study to present kinematical affects in the performance of high drive in soccer in order to understand mechanics of high drive. Ten national male soccer players, volunteered to be subjects. Selected Kinematical variables for the selected skill were angle at right ankle joint, angle at left ankle joint, angle at right Knee joint, angle at left Knee joint, angle at right shoulder joint, angle at left shoulder joint, angle at right elbow joint, angle at left elbow joint, distance of sticking point from the hitting object towards the intended direction and angle of release of the ball. Distance covered in meters by the ball in high drive which was supervised by the experts was the main criteria to measure the performance. Prime objective of the study was to find out the correlation between the selected kinematic variables of the subject and the performance of the subject in set shot. Specialized Motion Pro and Simi Machix software were used to analyze the movements of the subjects. It was observed that the distance of sticking point from the hitting object towards the intended direction and angle of release of the ball having significant relationship with the performance of high drive in soccer. Whereas angle at right ankle joint, angle at left ankle joint, angle at right Knee joint, angle at left Knee joint, angle at right shoulder joint, angle at left shoulder joint, angle at right elbow joint and angle at left elbow joint were not found significantly related with the performance of high drive.
