Effect of Sand Plyometric Training on Sprinting and Jumping Performance of School Volleyball Players

Abstract :

The sand plyometric training significantly improved sprinting variables namely 30 m dash and 50 m dash
performance of the experimental group. The sand plyometric training significantly improved jumping variables namely vertical jump and long jump of the experimental group. In the present study thirty volleyball players were selected randomly from Don. Bosco Hr.Sec.School, Chennai. The subjects were equally divided into two groups namely experimental group and control group, and the age of the subjects were ranged from 14 to 16 years. The investigator explained the purpose, importance of the experiment and the procedure, the role of the subjects during the experiment and the testing procedure were also explained to and good health. They were requested to co-operate and participated activity for the same. During the training period, the experimental groups under groups underwent their respective training programme 3 days a week for 12 week in addition to their regular task. On the training days, practices lasted in the evening 4.30 to 5.30 p.m approximately. The control group did not participate in any specific training. However, they had to perform their regular activities. The collected data from the subject during pre and post test were used for statistical analysis to find out the effect of the treatment on the criterion variable. The collected data were statistically analyzed by using dependent ‘t’ test to find out the significant difference at 0.05level.
