The purpose of the present investigation was to find outthe effect of the technique training with and without strength training ondribbling and hitting. To achieve this purpose, sixty men students wereselected randomly as subjects. Their age ranged from 20 to 25 years. They wereassigned randomly into two experimental groups (group I and group II) and acontrol group (group III) of twenty each. All the subjects of three groups weretested on selected dependent variables before and after the treatment. The datapertaining to the variables in this study were examined by using dependentt-test and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) for each variable separately. Twoexperimental groups namely technique training with and without strengthtraining groups have achieved significant improvement on dribbling and hittingwhen compared to the control group. Significant differences were found between technique training with andwithout strength training groups towards improving the selected variables suchas Dribbling and hitting. It may be concluded that technique training withstrength training group is found to be better.
