Information Processing Ability of Sports Children

Nethravathi R, Dr. Sreenivas.M

In early child hood sports is fun. Later stages children will take it as competitions. In this stage coaches are important and they will fulfill the children needs. Focusing only on winning typically diminishes the enjoyment experienced. Indeed, for both boys and girls the most important reasons given by them for participating in sports are developing skills, having fun, becoming physically fit, and being challenged (Gill, Gross, and Huddleston, 1983). Clearly, such a profile of objectives would require coaches to think expansively, the issue of the appropriateness of competitive vs. a social emphasis in children's sports programs must also take into account the level of the physical and psychological maturity of a participant. Many research reports that sports participation enhances the cognitive functions like, memory, attention and concentration, information processing, behaviour and academic performance for children. When the children started getting training in sports their skills will improve. Studies in the western countries have suggested a positive relationship between sports participation and information processing. However, there are not many studies in this direction in India. It is evident that results from the west cannot be directly applied to Indian context because of cultural skepticism. Keeping above points in view present study try to explore whether a sport coaching enhances children information processing. 30 children who are actively participating competitive sports and 30 children who are not participated in any competitive sports were selected using convenient sampling technique. Reaction Time Apparatus (1896) used to test the information processing ability of the children. The study will help to enrich the theoretical understanding of sports coaching and cognitive skills enhancement. The results were discussed in this paper.
