In the present study attempt has been made to find the effect of tapering and detraining of plyometric training on motor fitness. The male students categorized as novice and trained players (N=25 in each group of age 18-25 years) studying in various colleges of Bengaluru, Karnataka, India during the academic year 2018-2019 were subjected to plyometric training of various types in three alternative sessions per week of one hour per day for 12 weeks from July starting of 2018 to September end of 2018 with tapering and detraining for 2 weeks each at KVAFSU, Hebbal campus grounds, Bengaluru and the motor fitness components like speed, explosive power, muscular strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and reaction time were assessed as per standard field tests before and after the training. On the whole, the selected motor fitness tests of both the groups’ novice and trained players revealed significant increase among groups with respect to the parameters after the plyometric training. Both the trained and novice subjects’ improved performance was maintained during the tapering period (2 weeks) with very slight changes, while during detraining programme (2 weeks) the novice subject’s performance declined but ver marginally compared to values of motor fitness immediately after plyometric training for the trained subjects’ even though performance started deteriorating towards the base line but not at statistically significant level.
