They were divided in to three equal groups each group consisted of 15 players. Namely experimental group I (Hill Training group), experimental group II (Sand Training group) and control group. They were tested twice before and after the training with respect to performance variables of dribbling, passing and shooting. The training period for this study was three alternative days per week, for six weeks. The collected data were statistically analyzed with analysis of co-variance (ANCOVA) was used. The Scheffe’s test was used as post-hoc test to determine which of the paired means differed significantly where the differences in adjusted post-test means resided in univariate ANCOVA among three groups. All of the statistical analysis tests were computed at 0.05 level of significance was used to find out the significant difference between two experimental and control groups.  In all the cases 0.05 level of significant was fixed to test the hypothesis. It was concluded that the hill and sand training groups having more significant improvement, than the control group.
