The sample of this study were athletes who had won medals in table tennis competitions at the city or district level in Riau Province and Yogyakarta Special Region (DIY) Province as evidenced by certificates during 2023. Therefore, the sample of table tennis athletes involved was 70 athletes (44 boys and 26 girls). The characteristics of the athletes were an average age of 18.7±7.2 years and 6.1±0.9 years of training experience. The research instrument was a questionnaire distributed via <em>a Google form</em>. The questionnaire contained 20 statement items with a scale of 1 - 4. The coach's skills are divided into 4 factors (table 1), which were 1) skills in applying sports techniques, 2) skills in applying training periodization, 3) psychological skills, and 4) communication skills.</p> <p><strong>Results. </strong>Table Tennis Coaches' skills in general showed "very poor" 2 answers (3.32%), "poor" 19 answers (28.33%), "fair" 25 answers (33.53%), "good" 22 answers (31.68%), and "very good" 2 answers (3.32%).</p> <p><strong>Conclusions. </strong>From the results of this study, it is expected that the Riau Province and DIY Province table tennis organizations pay more attention to the quality of coach skills. One effective solution at this time is to provide training to coaches in stages. Further, providing opportunities for former athletes who no longer have a career to be given basic coaching knowledge so that later they can become professional coaches.</p> 2024-04-19T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Ali Mandan, Syahriadi, Trisnar Adi Prabowo Effect of Swimming Free 50 Meters for Males on Calcium Levels and Some Enzymes of Thyroid and Parathyroid Gland 2024-05-03T13:14:44+00:00 Shatha Hazim Gorgees <p><strong>Study purpose.</strong> This study aimed to investigate the effect of swimming free 50 meters on calcium levels and activities of some key enzymes involved in calcium metabolism in males.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods.</strong> Eleven healthy male adults were selected to participate in the study. They freely swam 50 meters daily for four weeks. A one-group pretest-posttest design was used to evaluate the effect of the swimming intervention on markers of calcium metabolism. Measurements were taken for participants before and after swimming. Fasting blood samples were collected before and after swimming to measure serum calcium levels as well as the activities of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), 5'-nucleotidase, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and parathormone (PTH) by standard enzymatic methods.</p> <p><strong>Results. </strong>After four weeks of swimming free 50 meters daily, serum calcium levels showed a statistically significant increase compared to baseline (p &lt; 0.05). The activities of ALP, AST, and ALT were significantly higher post-intervention (p &lt; 0.05 for all enzymes). There were no significant changes in 5'-nucleotidase, TSH, and PTH activities.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions.</strong> The results indicate that swimming free 50 meters daily for four weeks increases serum calcium levels, likely through enhanced bone resorption as suggested by the elevated activities of ALP, AST, and ALT. However, there were no significant effects on thyroid and parathyroid functions as assessed by TSH and PTH.</p> 2024-05-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Shtha Gorgees Faculty Members' Perspectives on Organisational Identity: Digital Leadership of Universities of Nineveh Governorate 2024-05-10T05:23:12+00:00 Thabet Ihsan Ahmed Ahmed Raad Ibrahim Nour Fares Ahmed Dhamiaa Ali Abdullah <p><strong>Study purpose.</strong> This study aimed to identify and determine the level of DL implementation by heads of physical education and sports science departments and the extent to which DL contributes to organisational identity in universities in Nineveh, Iraq. A descriptive survey method was used and the study involved faculty members in colleges and departments.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods</strong>. Data were obtained from 92 participating members. A structured questionnaire related to organisational identity was used, consisting of five dimensions (strength of identity, normative identity, utilitarian identity, mental image, and pride). Data were analysed for participants' responses in the form of percentages, arithmetic averages, and statistical data using SPSS version 21.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>. The results showed that the high level of DL application was for innovation and knowledge, at 83% and 73.7%, respectively. There was a positive and statistically significant relationship between DL application and organisational identity, respectively, and 82.5% for pride and 77% for normative identity, the most important dimension of organisational identity. There was a positive and statistically significant relationship between DL and its dimensions (innovation, persuasion, knowledge) and organisational identity of higher education (p&lt;0.05).</p> <p><strong>Conclusions</strong>. The study concludes the adoption of DL and organisational identity by department and college leaders as a result of high adoption of innovation and knowledge, in addition to normative identity, pride, and scientific method in dealing with lecturers. It was found that there is a significant relationship between DL and its organisational identity dimensions.</p> 2024-05-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Thabet Ihsan Ahmed , Ahmed Raad Ibrahim, Nour Fares Ahmed, Dhamiaa Ali Abdullah Differences in the Effect of Circuit Training and Fartlex Training on Increasing Vo2Max of Pencak Silat Athletes 2024-04-30T16:31:28+00:00 Kamarudin Kamarudin Sasmarianto Sasmarianto Wahyuni Rahmalia <p><strong>Study Purpose.</strong> The purpose of this study was to determine the difference in the effect between circuit training and fartlek training in increasing VO2Max for pencak silat athletes.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods.</strong> This study uses experimental research methodology with independent variables of circuit training and fartlek training, the dependent variable is VO2Max. The sample in this study amounted to 26 martial arts athletes with total sampling. Circuit training exercises have an effect on increasing VO2Max, then Fartlek training has an effect on increasing VO2Max.</p> <p><strong>Results.</strong> The results of the value of the two tests obtained a value of 0.00 &lt;0.05 circuit training and farlek training of 0.01 &lt;0.05. before and after being given exercise treatment it can be concluded that the results obtained by circuit training and Fartlex Exercise Influence on Increasing VO2Max athletes who are significant.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion.</strong> Based on the results of research and data analysis, it can be concluded that circuit training has a significant effect on increasing VO2Max, fartlek training has a significant effect on increasing VO2Max. when viewed from these two exercises, fartlek training has a more significant effect on increasing VO2Max for Pencak Silat athletes.</p> 2024-05-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 kamarudin kamarudin, Sasmarianto Sasmarianto, Wahyuni Rahmalia Effectiveness of Training Variations in Improving Forehand Smash Ability in Badminton Game 2024-05-23T03:32:45+00:00 Nikmah Kuswanti Yuskhil Mushofi Rubbi Kurniawan Trinovandhi Setyawan Shinta Masitho Windriyani <p><strong>Study purpose.</strong> This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of variations of arm muscle strength training and body flexibility in improving the forehand smash hitting ability of badminton players.</p> <p><strong>Materials and methods.</strong> The research sample consisted of 14 badminton players who were members of PB Nusantara Malang.
