Volleyball Player Assessment
Transcript of Volleyball Player Assessment
Strength and Speed
Volleyball is highly dependent on P-CR and anaerobic glycolysis
Athlete's anaerobic capacity correlates to fatigue during high intensity exercise bouts
300m shuttle test correlates to treadmill running MAOD poor/high scores (Moore & Murphy, 2003)
Repeated-effort test (RET) most sport specific, reflects game play movements
Jump Height Assessments
Vertical jump -most important to performance (Tanner & Gore, 2013; (AVCA volleyball performance index. Coaching volleyball 2.0, 2015)
Spike jump ( arm velocity also measured)
2 hand block jump
Body mass (balance scales)
Standing reach (Vertek)
Lower body fat in elite players (Lider & Ziv, 2010, Tanner & Gore, 2013)
Goniometer (shoulder girdle)
Studies on flexibility are equivocal
Dominant shoulder flexibility limitations may be related to rotator cuff injury
Time and block height of first trial is considered "ideal"
Each subsequent trial is records, and decrement calculated.
Limitation: Elite athletes often have high decrement percentage due to extremely high first trial.
Compare to normative data
(5.17sec,female college recruits)
Compare to previous performance

15 feet sprint
While indoor volleyball has a controlled environmental temp, beach volleyball is often in hot conditions.
-Hydration, appropriate sun gear and apparel important
Volleyball is primarily
anaerobic (rallies avg. 11 seconds of high intensity)
Shuttle run beep test may be done
Indoor games last up to 90 minutes; endurance still important
Physical /medical clearance
Tests would occur before season/training begins (could be used for try-outs)
Same tests in same order after 8-12 weeks to assess training effectiveness (avoiding testing before or after competition).
Minimum 48 hours between strength and field testing days.
Environmental conditions (indoor court vs. beach)
(Tanner & Gore, 2013)
Sample volleyball battery
300m shuttle run
1RM strength testing
shuttle run (beep) test
Reliability: same testing facility/technician
Valid: Coorelation to performance? Sometimes not the case ((AVCA volleyball performance index. Coaching volleyball 2.0, 2015))
Same time of day
