All of the participants were sprinters that qualify for SUKMA Sarawak 2016. Participants underwent the dynamic stretching alone and combined static dynamic stretching in counterbalanced order with 1-week wash-out period between both stretching protocols. Participants were tested using the 20-meter sprint test after each intervention. The result showed a significant sprint time difference between both interventions (p&lt;0.007). Dynamic stretching alone (3.16±0.090) showed a faster time to complete the 20-meter sprint test compared to combined static dynamic stretching (3.39±0.239). In conclusion, dynamic stretching alone is better than combined static dynamic stretching prior to speed performance. Combining static and dynamic stretching activities prior to speed performance is not recommended.</p> Syahir Brahim, Ebby Waqqash Mohamad Chan ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3329 Sun, 14 Jun 2020 15:06:10 +0000 Movement pattern in term of court coverage among top international male and female badminton players during BWF World Championships 2013 https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3293 <p style="text-align: justify;">The aim of this study are to identify the movement patterns of top international male and female badminton players in term of their court coverage. Twenty games (n=20), ten each from the males and females single of the World Championships 2013, were chosen for this study. The subjects were all elite athletes from the various countries’ national squads. All games were analysed using Sports code Pro, which was recorded by Astro Beyond. Then, the researcher is required to identify the specific movement patterns especially on court. Finally, the movement patterns and direction movement of athletes on court were identified and analysed. From the results of this study, we can see that the opponents will try to send the shuttlecock to the sites far from the players to earn advantages. It is a need for the badminton players to have a proper physical conditioning training in order to increase their performance and at the same time reduce the risks of injury.</p> Frederick Josue @ Mohd Fadhil Abdullah, Izwyn Zulkapri, Kamaruzaman Soeed, Iqbal Tariq ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3293 Sun, 14 Jun 2020 15:33:23 +0000 Modification of sports motivation instruments based sport motivation Scale-II https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3131 <p style="text-align: justify;">The ability of athletes to use psychological maturity, especially motivation, is an effective effort to achieve maximum performance in every sport. This study aims to adapt the Sport Motivation Scale-II (SMS-II) scale into Indonesian. The subjects of this study were 32 students from the Special Sports Class at Yogyakarta 13 Public Middle School, with 21 male and 11 female students. The findings in this study are that the Indonesian version of the SMS-II scale has good construct validity because it matches the underlying construct and has good reliability values. Thus, the Indonesian version of the SMS-II scale can be used to measure students' sports motivation in the context of research and practice.</p> Aditya Akbar Islami ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3131 Fri, 26 Jun 2020 02:36:02 +0000 The effectiveness of teaching games for understanding to promote enjoyment in teaching games of physical education lesson https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3415 <p style="text-align: justify;">Physical Education is one of the compulsory subjects in primary and secondary schools in Malaysia. The primary goal of Physical Education is to develop students in the aspects of cognitive, psychomotor, and affective. Teaching and learning of Physical Education should provide more opportunities for students to improve the efficiency of motor skills, movement, and maintaining physical fitness. The teaching and learning process must focus on students' learning to generate understanding, learning, and ' satisfaction. The failure to attract students toward Physical Education may affect the goals of the subject. Enjoyment is a crucial factor underlying exercise motivation and positive participation in both physical activity and Physical Education. 'Students' attitudes toward Physical Education are likely to be linked with their enjoyment in classes. Therefore, to achieve the goals of the subject, it is imperative to create enjoyment in the teaching and learning process. Hence this study to determine the effectiveness of teaching games for understanding to promote enjoyment in teaching games of Physical Education lesson. Eighty students from form Vocational College in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur, and one Physical Education teacher agreed to participate in this study. They were divided into two groups in order to compare two instructional approaches. The experimental group (A), 42 students, experienced Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU), while the control group (B), 38 students, and experienced a technical-traditional approach. The study design was a quasi-non-equivalent group pre-test and post-test design. A pre- and post-test were performed on each group to assess the influence of the methodology used on students' enjoyment in Physical Education. ANCOVA analysis was conducted to determine the effectiveness of teaching methods toward student enjoyment in Physical Education. Results revealed that group A showed greater enjoyment in the class than group B. Significant differences were found in enjoyment.</p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Zarizi Ab Rahman, Azlan Ahmad Kamal, Mohd Anizu Mohd Nor, Rozita Ab Latif ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3415 Fri, 26 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Motivasi intrinsik dan ekstrinsik dalam kalangan atlet Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3464 <p style="text-align: justify;">Motivasi adalah dorongan dalaman yang menjurus seseorang individu untuk memenuhi matlamat diri dan organisasi. Motivasi terdiri daripada dua bahagian iaitu motivasi instrinsik dan juga ekstrinsik. Secara umumnya, motivasi merupakan faktor psikologi penting yang sering kali dikaitkan dengan penglibatan atlet dalam sukan. Kajian ini dijalankan adalah untuk mengenalpasti perbezaan jenis motivasi intrinsik dan ekstrinsik berdasarkan Self-Determination Theory (SDT) daripada perspektif jantina. Sampel kajian terdiri daripada 63 orang atlet Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) (n=63; lelaki=30, perempuan=33) yang menyertai Karnival Sukan MASUM. Instrumen yang digunakan bagi mengukur motivasi atlet ialah melalui borang soal-selidik Skala Motivasi Sukan (Sport Motivation Scale, SMS-28) yang merangkumi kriteria motivasi intrinsik (untuk mengetahui, untuk menyempurnakan, untuk mendorong), ekstrinsik (pengaruh luaran, pengaruh introjeksi, pengaruh kenalpasti) dan amotivasi (demotivasi). Hasil kajian menunjukkan atlet-atlet UKM lebih didorong oleh motivasi instrinsik (M=4.43 ± 0.38) berbanding motivasi ekstrinsik (M=4.19 ± 0.44). Walau bagaimanapun, tidak terdapat perbezaan yang signifikan bagi dimensi-dimensi motivasi intrinsik dan ekstrinsik di antara jantina (p &gt;.05). Secara keseluruhannya, kajian ini menunjukkan bahawa motivasi intrinsik adalah faktor utama bagi penglibatan atlet UKM dalam sukan yang diceburi.</p> Mohamad Firdaus Ahmad, Siti Aida Lamat, S.M.P Sharifah Maimunah, Muhammad Wafi A.

Kajian ini dijalankan selama sembilan bulan bermula dari Julai 2018 hingga April 2019. Sebanyak 10 orang jurulatih PLD dari kalangan guru telah terlibat sebagai peserta kajian dan ditemu bual bagi mendapatkan data. Jumlah peserta kajian telah di tentukan oleh tahap “saturation of information” di mana peserta kajian yang di temu bual didapati sudah tidak dapat mengemukakan sesuatu data yang baru berbanding dengan peserta kajian sebelumnya. Data hasil dari temu bual, pemerhatian dan kajian lapangan serta dokumen yang berkaitan telah dianalisis menggunakan kaedah thematic analysis seperti yang telah dicadangkan oleh Patton (2002). Berdasarkan kajian yang dijalankan mendapati tahap kompetensi latihan, kompetensi perlawanan dan kompetensi pengurusan jurulatih dari kalangan guru dapat mempengaruhi prestasi pemain bola sepak PLD di Kuala Lumpur seterusnya dapat menyumbang kepada peningkatan kualiti pemain bola sepak di Malaysia.</p> Fakrul Hazely Ismail, Zulakbal Abd Karim, Novri Ghazali ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3457 Tue, 30 Jun 2020 02:18:12 +0000 Tai Chi and Zumba Gold®: An alternative to motivate elderly in doing physical activity. https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3185 <p style="text-align: justify;">Elderly population are at risk of getting cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, loss of physical and functional fitness and any other health conditions related to ageing. Research has shown that, adherence to physical activity can help to reduce and control the prevalence of this diseases. However, as age increased, the tendency of elderly population to involve in physical activity decreased, and will continue decreasing as the age increased. Most of elderly population claimed that their motivation to involve in physical activity was low due to the several factors which includes; feeling fear that they will fall, their body will be in pain, too old to do exercise, no fun elements and no time to do exercise. Therefore, it is important to find a suitable exercise program for this aged group which will interest them to participate and at the same time will be beneficial to their health.&nbsp; In this paper, we will look on two possible exercise programs which have the elements of safety and not too vigorous to be done by this age group which are Tai Chi and Zumba Gold®.</p> Nor Fadila Kasim, Sarah Aldred, Jet Veldhuijzen Van Zanten ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ejournal.upsi.edu.my/index.php/JSSPJ/article/view/3185 Tue, 30 Jun 2020 03:15:07 +0000
