Abstract:

This study explores the differences in psychomotor abilities among university-level volleyball players across different playing positions: setters, hitters, and liberos. Psychomotor abilities such as kinesthetic perception, speed of movement, and response time are critical for volleyball performance. Using the Horizontal Space Test, Nelson Speed of Movement Test, and Four-Way Alternate Test, we assessed these abilities in a sample of 60 players. ANOVA results revealed significant differences in kinesthetic perception and response time, with setters outperforming hitters and liberos, while no significant differences were observed in speed of movement. These findings underscore the need for position-specific training to enhance performance. The study contributes valuable insights for coaches and trainers in optimizing training regimens tailored to the distinct psychomotor demands of each playing position.
