The aim of this study was to determine the possible significance of differences in the area of aerobic capacity among two groups of volleyball players. Laboratory measurements were performed on sixty-eight male subjects, all members of the A1 Croatian volleyball league, who were divided into two groups. The first group consisted of a higher level v...
Conference Paper
Spiking efficacy is one of the key factors for success of one volleyball team. The fact that one team wins most of the points in the set/match with the spike (Bellendier, 2003 ; Marelić et al., 2005) makes this element very interesting for analysis. Besides technical – tactical diversity the key factor on high competitive level is the spiking veloc...
Conference Paper
The efficiency of sprinting velocity depend on the optimal proportion of starting phase, acceleration phase, maximal velocity phase and deceleration phase. Maximal velocity is one of the most important factors of sprint (Coh and Dolenec, 2008) and in 100m race it is mostly maintained from 60 m to 90 m. Biomechanical parameters of sprinting performa...

The purpose of this study was to confirm the possible statistically significant differences between two groups of teams – the group of semi-finalists (1 st –4 th place), and other teams (5 th –8 th place), on the basis of 6 situational parameters (serve, serve reception, block, defence, attack and counter-attack) in each of the 6 game rotations. A...

The aim of this research was twofold. First, we tried to investigate the possible differences in fitness level and morphological characteristics between the group of starters and the group of substitutes. Second, we tried to develop a model of the top-level female volleyball player according to the playing position. Thirty-nine female volleyball pl...

Klasično sociometrijsko mjerenje provedeno je na prvoligaškoj ženskoj ekipi. Od ispitanica se tražilo da imenuju neograničeni broj suigračica prema emocionalnim i funkcionalnim tipovima kriterija biranja. Dobiveni rezultati pokazuju diobu ekipe u tri skupine. Utvrđeno je kako se dvije igračice znatno ističu po broju nominacija, što se podudara s tr...

To create a FunBall program (with two subprograms for children aged 6 - 7 and 8 - 9 years) that children will enjoy and that we facilitate the development of a broad knowledge and ability base, on the basis of which they will be able to remain in sport/recreation in the long run. The program supplements a lack of similar content in volleyball (Multisport + Volleyball) for children of that age in partner countries.
