Abstract

Many studies have considered the effect of training techniques (especially plyometric) on jump height. However, previous research has not considered the optimum surface for these training techniques. The aim of this research was to determine which training and/or playing surface is most beneficial in maximising vertical jump height for volleyball players. Attainment of such knowledge will not only assist athletes in optimising results but also help coaches in developing training. Conclusions. It is reasonable to suggest that sand training and playing surface had a greater effect on increasing vertical jump height on both surfaces. This minor thesis was written by a post graduate student as part of the requirements of the Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) program.
