Kinematic analysis of velocity of jump serve among national level volleyball players


Author(s): Sreeja U Bhasi and Dr. CS Sadanandan

Abstract:
Jump serve is the difficult serve among all other volleyball serves. It has relatively short time of flight because the ball travels with greater velocity and topspin which leads to a fast drop down of the ball. A powerful jump serve often results an ace because either the opponent may not get adequate time for the reception or the player may not get the control on the received ball. In jump serve, the player jump from behind the end line, hit the ball in the air inside the court and land at the middle of the court. In effect, when comparing other serves by standing behind the end line; the ball contact of the jump serve takes place inside the court. This allows the served ball to travel less distance with greater speed towards the opponents’ court. Considering the importance of velocity of the serve, the present research investigates its characteristics through video analysis. The preset research attended to find out the relationship between selected linear kinematic variables of jump serve and velocity of the ball among national level male volleyball players. The purpose of the study was achieved with participation of 10 national level male volleyball players who have represented Kerala in national level competitions Two dimensional video analysis using the captured trials of different techniques by the sample (N= 20) trials for each techniques considered. The Kinovea motion analysis software was used as the tool for the same. The data collected through the video analysis method was statistically assessed by using Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient and found that there was significant positive relationship between velocity of the ball with take-off velocity, height of CG at ball contact, reach height and distance of jump.
