A total number of 60 subjects from 14 to 16 years players were divided into two groups as footballers and cricketers on the basis of their sports participation were considered as the subject of the present study.The kinesthetic perception was measured by distance perception jump and reaction time was measured by Nelson hand reaction test. To find out the difference between components of the Football and Cricket players the t test was computed and the following conclusions were drawn - i) There was significance difference was existing in kinesthetic perception and reaction timebetween footballer and cricket players. ii) Football players were better in kinesthetic perception and reaction time than cricket players.
