e purpose of the study is to find out the influence of badminton skills training on selected biomotor and skill performance variables of college-level students with hearing impairment. Participants:
To achieve the purpose of the study 12 college students with hearing impairment from Ramakrishna
Mission Vidyalaya Industrial Training Institute, Coimbatore was randomly selected as subjects. The
subject’s ages ranged from 15 to 21 years. Parameters: For this study, Badminton skills training
was selected as an independent variable. Bio Motor parameters namely speed and skill performance
parameters namely short service and long service were selected dependent variables. Speed, short serve
and long serve was measured by 50 meters run test, French short serve test and Poole long serve test
respectively. Experimental Design and Statistical Techniques: The study was formulated as a truly
random group design, consisting of a pre-test and a post-test. A paired ‘t’ test was used to test the mean
difference between the pre and post-test. In this statistical test level of significance was chosen at 0.05.
The protocol of Badminton skills training: Standardized training protocol, a two days orientation was
given to the subjects in which the methods and techniques of the training program were explained
by using sign language interpretation and physical demonstration. The training program consisted of
twelve weeks of five days each week in ninety minutes of training per day. The training schedule
indicates that the training aim, drills and repetition of first to the fourth week, fifth to eight weeks and
ninth to twelfth weeks. The training contains the day of the week, training aim, drills and repetition
were detailly given in the schedule. Conclusion: Badminton skills training has a positive effect on
speed, short serve and long serve of students with HI.
