Analysis of selected kinematic variables with the performance of volleyball players in float serve

Author(s): Pankaj Singh, Anita Pharswan, Virendra Singh
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship of selected kinematic variables with the performance of Volleyball players in float serve. The subjects for this study were ten male volleyball players of match practice of Lakshmi Bai National University of Physical Education, Gwalior. The performance of subjects was evaluated by Russell Lounge test. The digital photography was used as a technique for Biomechanical analysis of Float serve in volleyball. The Pearson’s Product moment Correlation was calculated between selected kinematics variable and performance of the subject in float serve. For testing the level of significance was set at 0.05. The variables which might have contributed to the effectiveness of the technique could be identified and undertaken to analyze the technique of float serve were:- 
1. Angular Kinematic variables :
a) Knee joint (right) 
b) Knee joint(left) 
c) Shoulder joint (striking arm) d) Elbow joint(striking arm) 
2. Linear Kinematic variables : 
a) Height of center of gravity of volleyball players at the moment execution (strike). 
b) Height of the center of gravity of ball at moment execution (strike). 
The results have exhibited that the obtain value of correlation coefficient in case of the height of center of gravity of player at moment execution and height of center of gravity of the ball from the ground at moment execution has shown the significant relationship with the performance of subjects in float serve whereas other selected kinematic variables show an insignificant relationship at the 0.05 level of significance.
