Thus the aim of this study was to determine the comparative analysis of respiratory indices of throwers. To obtain data, the investigators had selected Sixty (N=60), male inter-college and inter-university level throwers between the age group of 18-25 years were selected. The subjects were purposively assigned into three groups: Group-A: Throwers (n1=60) Inter-College (n1a=30) and Inter-University (n1b=30). To determine the significant differences of motor fitness components between Inter-College and Inter- University Throwers, unpaired t-test was employed for data analyses. To test the hypothesis, the level of significance was set at 0.05. To concludes, it is significant to mention in relation to Respiratory Indices that insignificant differences occur between Inter-College and Inter-University Throwers on the sub variable Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV). However, the significant differences occur between Inter-College and Inter-University Throwers on the sub variable Vital Capacity (VC), Tidal Volume (VT), Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV) and Inspiratory Capacity (IC).
