Determining Dominant Physical Factors in Takraw Service Capability


Service technique is a quite important element in the game of takraw because it is the initial kick done by kicking bendly towards the opponent field as a sign of starting the game in takraw game. With a good service will make it difficult for the opponent to return the ball so that point achievement can be achieved by the team who do the service. The purpose of this study is to determine the dominant physical factors as determinant of takraw service capability. The method used is correlation with multiple linear regression analysis processed by SPSS program version 16. Sampling technique in this research is purposive sampling with 100 sample from population of120 students. This study was conducted on 07-13 October 2015 at the Sports Hall of Cenderawasih University, Jayapura Papua. The variables of this study are leg length, weight, flexibility of leg, leg power, balance and service capability with the formula Y = a + b1X1 + b2X2 + b3X3 + b4X4 + b5X5. The conclusion showsthat the dominant physical factor in the takraw servicecapability is the leg muscle power variable (X3).This is because the limb muscle has the highest standardized coefficient beta value (0.230) compared with other variables
