Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to predict the playing ability in volleyball from selected anthropometrical and physical among college level male volleyball players. To achieve the purpose two hundred and sixty one volleyball players were randomly selected from various colleges in Tamilnadu state, India and their age ranged from 18 to 25 years. The subjects had past playing experience of at least three years in volleyball and only those who represented their respective college teams were taken as subjects. As the performance is concerned, the anthropometrical and physical variables play a vital role in overall performance. The anthropometrical variables namely – standing height, body weight, arm length, leg length, calf girth, thigh girth; physical variables namely – speed, Strength, agility, flexibility. The playing ability is the dependant variable. It was taken as the performance factor, which was subjectively assessed by three qualified volleyball coaches. The computation of multiple regression was also used. In multiple regressions, a criterion variables from a set of predictors was predicted. Step wise argument methods of multiple regression was used in this study to find out the predictor variable that has the highest correlation with the criterion variables were entered in the equation depending on the contribution of each predictor. The SPSS 15 version package was used to determine the predictive equation. The results revealed that the leg length, standing height, agility, arm length and calf girth become the common characteristics which can predict the Volleyball playing ability among college level men players.
