The data for the present study were collected in the inter college competition organized by Himachal Pradesh University, during the session 2011-2012. Each athlete was tested for various anthropometric characteristics necessary for estimation of chest, hip, thigh and calf circumference and biceps, triceps, sub scapular, supera iliac, thigh and calf skinfold measurements of fullback footballers and hockey players.
