Abstract: Objective: The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of eight weeks proprioceptive training on agility of male kho-kho players. Methodology: Fifty (25= experimental & 25= Control group) male national level kho-kho players were selected purposively as subject for the present study. The age of the subjects ranged between 14 to 18 years. Eight weeks proprioceptive training was considered as independent variable and Agility acts as dependent variable. The design of the study was repeated measure group design since the data were collected at different intervals. The test was conducted before the intervention program i.e. at baseline level, then after 4 weeks & finally after 8 weeks of intervention program. Agility of both the groups was measured by using Illinois agility test. In order to find out the effect of proprioceptive training on agility, Descriptive Statistic and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used. Trend analysis was used to find out the trend of improvement. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The data was analyzed by statistical package of social science (SPSS). Results & Conclusion of the study: The finding of the study showed that the Proprioceptive training improve performance of Illinois agility test of male kho-kho players. Statistically significant difference was found between experimental and control groups in pre, mid and post mean scores, experimental group showed higher scores at (p < .05) level.
