In the present study, technique improved by 21%, while accuracy improved by 117%. The technical skill improvement following training in the present study was similar to that achieved following training in other skillbased sports (1, 22). However, the large improvement inaccuracy most likely reflected the poor accuracy in the volleyball players prior to training. While measures of skill improved following short-term training, it is unclear if these skill improvements would have been maintained following a longer period of training or if similar improvements would have been made by highly skilled volleyball players. The present results are therefore limited to talent identified junior volleyball players and may not be applicable to highly skilled, elite volleyball players. In addition, all skill tests were conducted in a controlled environment. Therefore, it is unclear if the improvements in skill would have transferred to a competitive environment, where skill is dependent on the player’s cognitive knowledge of the game-specific situation, their ability to process visual and other game-specific information, and their ability to execute the skill under the pressure of competition. While skill in the isolated tasks of spiking, setting, serving, and passing improved following training, a player’s ability to execute skills successfully after making a decision (e.g., during competition) is of greater importance. Future studies investigating the effect of skill-based training on skill acquisition could use a game-specific performance test to assess the decision making ability of players under conditions simulating the pressure and fatigue of competitive matches.Pages: 283-288 | 495 Views 52 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
