ENERGY SYSTEMS AND PHYSIOLOGICAL DEMANDS IN BASKETBALL AND NETBAL
The Aerobic energy system provides a steady supply of energy throughout the duration of a game.( Netball is having more aerobic activity in comparisons with the Basketball), and a player must have trained cardiovascular system in order to provide the necessary amount of oxygen.The dominant energy system in basketball and Netball are different because of the nature of movements in both the games under study. Netball is considered the game of interval whereas game of Basketball is known for explosive speed and power. By comparing four of the playing positions-center, goal shooter, goal keeper and goal defense- the information is gathered. The goal shooter caught the ball on more occasion than the other positions, and was stationary for a considerable amount of time during the game. . The timing and amount of energy liberation largely depend upon the conditioning and delivery of energy systems of a player. That would be the deciding factor in the performance of an individual player.
