Abstract [en]

Background: Volleyball is a physically demanding sport, not because of physical contacts between players but because of the quick movements and changes of directions that occurs both horizontally and vertically. Many coaches consider vertical jump and agility as the most important skills for a successful volleyball player to possess. Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the correlations of different anaerobic physical skills, such as countermovement jump (CMJ), squat jump (SJ), eccentric utilization ratio (EUR) and agility, to success in order to find out which skill is most important for sportive success for male and female elite volleyball players. Methods: Male (n=7) and female (n=7) elite volleyball players were recruited to perform CMJ, SJ and t-test. After a standardized warm-up the participants performed three CMJ and three SJ each on the first test session. On the second test session the same standardized warm-up was made after which the participants performed the t-test two times each. Results: A very strong correlation between success and SJ for men was the only significant correlation to success found in the study. A strong correlation between EUR and success, also for men, were found. Conclusion: It seems as vertical jumps are more important to success than agility for men but it’s difficult to draw any concrete conclusions from this study. The women’s results are even more difficult to interpret but it seems as vertical jumps are not as important for success in female volleyball compared to male volleyball. EUR is very interesting area and for the men it had a high correlation to success which could possibly mean that when finding the optimal EUR level for volleyball players, that could possibly be the best indicator of success.
