Abstract

This paper reported a correlational study between IQ, EQ, physical fitness, and athlete performance. The samples were 30 futsal players at SMAN 1 Banjaran, Bandung, West Java. The study was conducted using a survey method. The research instrument were the APM (Advanced Progressive Matrices) test, questionnaires, the bleep test, and the Game Performance Assessment Instrument (GPAI). The results revealed that IQ influenced athlete performance as much as 19.4%. The correlation coefficient between them was 0.441. In other words, IQ and athlete performance was moderately correlated to each other. It was also revealed that EQ influenced performance as much as 21.2%. The correlation coefficient between EQ and performance was 0.460. It means that these two variables were moderately correlated. The results also show that physical fitness influenced performance as much as 14.2%. The correlation coefficient between physical fitness and performance was 0.367. It means that these two variables have low correlation. Meanwhile, there was a strong correlation between IQ, EQ, physical fitness and athlete performance as the observed F value was 4.653 with a significance value as much as 0.010 < 0.05. It means that the null hypothesis was rejected. Put it simply, there was a significant correlation between IQ, EQ, physical fitness and athlete performance.
