Abstract:
A researcher likes to have taken for granted the outstanding achievements of athletes experience in school. More probably, most of us have done and realized that athlete’s success in school is an effect of their dedication, time management skills, discipline, organizational abilities and other qualities which they have obtained through regular participation in play. There are two types of play, i.e., with physical activity (outdoor game) and without physical activity (indoor game). This study validates the play-type participation and scholastic performance. The 64 adolescence girl athletes (16 of each game) were randomly selected from different schools in Jalgaon district. The exam result of academic year 2016-17 was considered as a scholastic performance indicator. On the basis of collected data following results was found, i.e. there was no significant difference found in the scholastic performance among adolescence girl athletes of Jalgaon district. The scholastic performance of Football, Basketball, Gymnastics and Chess adolescence girl athletes is decreased by 7.2375%, 6.3375%, 1.1501% and 2.6375% respectively. Though the results shows the regression of scholastic performance of girl athletes, past researches was proved that there was a significant development in learning among athletes. It may due to the limitations of this study, i.e. it’s not a preplanned study, scholastic performance was considered as a learning developmental indicator, and non-athletes was not included in data collection. It’s a scope to do long term and preplanned study with appropriate psychological tool for accessing development in learning among athletes.
