Abstract

The aim of this study was to analyze kinematically the jump throw movements of adult category players. The sample of this study was done by ten players. For the kinematic analysis, it was used a bidimensional video graph system and the Jump Test system to analyze the vertical jump. Within the analyzed variables, the angle of elbow extension in the moment of ball release was a value of 126,67 ± 9,42º, which was not verified a significant difference related to other studies. In the variable projected angle of the ball it was observed an average value of 54,75 ± 2,48º, with a significant difference related to other studies. The jump throws has a low technique rate, because only 40% of realized throws had success.
