To work on the purpose of the study 300 male Indian field hockey players played at different levels of competitions were selected. The age of the participants ranged from 17 to 25 years.

Stratified random sampling technique (proportionate) was done and 100 participants were selected for each stratum. Achievement motivation of the subjects was measured by using sports achievement motivation test developed by Kamlesh (1990). In order to find-out the achievement motivation of the field hockey players of different levels of competitions, One Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to find out the significant difference among inter-collegiate, north-zone intervarsity and all India intervarsity level field hockey players. To know more about the pattern of differences existing within a set of population means, Least Significant Difference (LSD) Post-hoc test were used. The significance was tested at 0.05 level.
