To take the sample in this research Cluster Random Sampling is used with as many as 76 people (37 people for the try out and 39 people for research). The measurement of this study is using a concentration test of children. The data were analyzed by using a statistical non parametric Mann Whitney U Test. Obtained a value of U = 80.000 p = 0.002 (p <0.05). The average value of concentration gain score study subjects in the experimental group amounted to 25.50 while the average value gain score subjects in the control group at 14:21.
