Journal Title: Exercise and Quality of Life - Year 2016, Vol 8, Issue 1

Abstract

Skill-based training has been developed in order to combine the skill and conditioning elements in a coordinated approach. Our aim was to determine the effects of skill based conditioning training on power and COD speed in youth female volleyball players. Sixteen young female volleyball athletes (15±2 years) consented to participate in lower-body power and COD speed testing.Players were involved in six weeks skill-based conditioning training during in-season. There were no significant differences between pretraining and posttraining for Block jump and Spike jump. Moreover, there were no significant (p > 0.05) improvements in Standing broad jump also.However, compared with pretraining, there was a significant improvement in COD speed tests. Training induced significant (p ≤ 0.05) improvements in 9-3-6-3-9 test (p<0,001) and Side steps 10x4.5 m (p<0,001).In conclusion, skill-based conditioning training appears to have stronger effects in improving COD speed compared to lover body power young female volleyball players. Volleyball coaches could use this information in the process of planning the in-season training.
