Effect of Motor Ability and Self-Confidence on Triple Jump Skills in Youth Aged 18–20: Path Analysis Study Among Students at University College
The purpose of the study is to analyze the impact of motor skills and self-confidence on triple jump skills.
Materials and methods. The study participants (n = 41) were male college students aged 18–20 years. Regression analysis (path analysis) was used to analyze the interrelationship between motor skills variable variables, self-confidence (exogenous variables) and triple jump skills (endogenous variables).
Results. The analysis indicated that there is an influence of motor skills towards triple jump skills with = (r ≥ 0.711; p < 0.000; significant) and a linear determination coefficient (R2 ≥ 0.506) contributing 50.60%. There is an influence of self-confidence on triple jump skills with = (r ≥ 0.707, p < 0.000; significant) and a linear determination coefficient (R2 ≥ 0.50) contributing 50.00%. There is an influence of motor skills on self-confidence with = (r ≥ 0.693, p < 0.000; significant) and a linear determination coefficient (R2 ≥ 0.480) contributing 48.00%. There is an influence of motor skills and self-confidence on triple jump skills with = (r ≥ 0.771, p < 0.000; significant) and a linear determination coefficient (R2 ≥0.594; p < 0.005; significant), the total exogenous variable contribution is 59.40%.
Conclusions. Motor skills and self-confidence must be considered by educators or trainers during the training process. Good motor skills and high self-confidence will affect triple jump skills.
