It is reasonable to assume that warm-up activities produce a change in an athlete's performance. Observations have shown that many athletes take some kind of warm-up before actual participation. In view of the fact that such activities are prevelant, the problem in this study is one of determining the effect of warm-up exercises in physical performance in basketball.

The purpose of this study is two-fold, namely: (1) to ascertain the effects of select warm-up activities on physical performance of basketball players and (2) to determine to what extent changes, if any, occur in the performance of the athletes.

The study is limited to the physical effects that selected warm-up activities have on the physical performance of ten basketball players of Bethune High School, Crane, Texas.
