Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify and describe the biomechanical characteristics of the high school volleyball players jump spikes. Eleven elite male players participated in this study. Two Peak high-speed cameras (120 Hz) were genlocked to record the spiking action. The results showed that the spiking techniques of male high school volleyball players are quite similar to those of university volleyball players except for contact ball height. It is suggested that coaches should train the young players jumping ability and fast spiking motion in order to improve spiking power.
