Abstract

Hitting the ball is a complicated ability in softball academicie, because in appreciation to prioritizing movement skills, cognitive appearances additionally need to be investigated, one of which is attention. Meanwhile, going to hit the ball requires excellent attention for an individual student. Exhibiting gamma waves further influence arrangements of hitting performance. The objectives of this study were first, to determine the negative functional correlation between gamma brain waves and hitting skills, then second to know the positive functional correlation between attention and hitting skills and third to determine the effect of attention on increasing hitting skills. The method used in this research is an experimental method with a one-group pretest-posttest design research design. The sampling technique in this study was using a saturated sampling technique. This investigation amounted to 20 subjects, in the calculation of the Pearson product-moment correlation test using SPSS v.23. The first results collected were p-value 0.026 with an r square value of 0.25, so there is a significant negative functional correlation between gamma brain waves and hitting skills in softball learning of 25%. The second issue obtained p-value 0.017 with an r square value of 0.28, so there is a significant positive functional correlation between attention and hitting skills in softball learning by 28%. Furthermore, thirdly, the results obtained p-value 0.0001 between pre-test and post-test, with a significant increase in skills of 70.17%, so there is a significant influence between attention and hitting skills.
