Abstract: This study was designed to investigate the impact of endurance training on aerobic fitness and speed endurance of Inter-Collegiate cricket players. To achieve the purpose of the study 30 Inter-Collegiate cricket players were selected from Bharathiar University, Coimbatore. The subjects was randomly assigned to two equal groups (n=15). Group- I underwent endurance training and Group - II was acted as control group. The training was given to the experimental group for 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) for the period of six weeks. The control group was not be given any sort of training except their routine work. Aerobic fitness was measured by Yo-Yo test and unit of measurement was in levels. Speed endurance was measured by 150mts/dash unit of measurement was Seconds. The data collected from the subjects was statistically analysed with ‘t’ ratio to find out significant improvement if any at 0.05 level of confidence. The result of the aerobic fitness and speed endurance improved significantly due to impact of endurance training with the limitations of (diet, climate, life style) status and previous training the result of the present study coincide findings of the investigation done by different experts in the field of sports sciences. Endurance training significantly improved aerobic fitness and speed endurance of inter-collegiate cricket players.
