Abstract

The purpose of the study was a three dimensional motion analysis of the volleyball spike from position four during competition. Spikes were analysed at a tournament of the European league.

It may be concluded that there exists reserves within the training process concerning the coordination in the takeoff phase even in high level athletes.
