Relationship between selected anthropometric variables and performance of volleyball players


Author(s): Dr. Sukhwinder Singh

Abstract: The present investigation finds the relationship between selected Anthropometric variables and performance of university level Volleyball Players. For the purpose of the study, thirty (N=30) volleyball players were selected as subjects from the North Zone Inter-University Volleyball Tournament. The selected Anthropometric measurements were taken with the help of vernier calipers and lange’s skinfold calipers. The performance of the subjects was measured in terms of Spiking ability of the players during the match. Product moment method for inter-correlation was applied for analysis of data. The body diameters i.e. biacromial, bicristal and elbow diameters have been found to possess positive and significant (p<0.01) correlation with the performance at 0.01, and body diameters Femur Bicondylar, Wrist and Ankle have been found to statistically insignificant (p>0.05) correlation with the performance. The skinfold measurements i.e. subscapular and suprailiac have been found to possess positive and significant (p<0.01) correlation with the performances at 0.01, biceps, and calf skinfold measurements have been found to possess positive and significant (p<0.05) correlation with the performances at 0.05. Triceps and thigh skinfold measurements have been found to statistically insignificant (p>0.05) correlation with the performance. It can be concluded from the findings of the present study that body diameters biacromial, bicristal, and elbow and; subscapular, suprailiac biceps, and calf skinfold measurements contribute significantly in Volleyball performance.
