Physical Fitness today s receiving increasing attention throughout the United States and even the whole world. This was pointed out when President Eisenhower expressed concern over the results of the Kraus-Weber Tests and called a conference on health and physical-fitness. Health literature generally is giving increased emphasis to activity and the results of activity at the various age and size levels. This study is an attempt to evaluate the worth whileness of soccer as an activity in physical education programs especially as it affects cardiovascular-fitness and agility. The purpose of this paper may therefore be listed as follows: (1) to determine the effect of a 3 ½ weeks soccer unit on the agility and cardiovascular-fitness of ninth grade boys, (2) to compare boys who are large for their age with those who are small with respect to cardiovascular-fitness and agility, and (3) to compare boys who have a long trunk and short legs with who have long legs and a short trunk with respect to cardiovascular-fitness and agility.
