Abstract

The study was designed to investigate the effect of plyometric training and plyometric training with mind training on volleying skill among college level volleyball players. For this 30volleyball players were selected randomly from college of Kerala as subjects. Their age ranged from 18 to 25 years. They were divided into three equal groups namely control group Experimental Group II, and Experimental Group III. 3 days in a week, the Experimental Group II underwent plyometric training, Experimental Group III underwent plyometric training with mind training and Group-I control group was not given any specific training. The following criterion variable was chosen, namely spikingskill. It was assessed before and after the training period of 12 weeks. The analysis of covariance was used to determine any significant difference present among the three groups of the dependent variables. The study revealed that the selected skill performance variables (Spikingskill) were significantly improved due to the influence of plyometric training and plyometric training with mind training on college level volleyball players.
