The thesis is comprised by the analysis of information gathered from the measuring of male and female players of regional volleyball teams. The measuring has taken place on a tournament in Kranj in February 2017. The following tests have been adopted: body height, reaching height, body weight, jump height according to Sargent, reaching approach height, reaching blocking height, bend on the bench and throw of a medicine ball with both hands from a sitting position. 76 boys and 82 girls have taken part in the test. The focus was on their physical characteristics and motor skills in the whole generation and based on their playing specialization.
The information has been analysed with the SPSS statistics system. The results have been placed into charts and completed with the findings.
The test shows similarities in length parameters of boys with positions as blockers, setters and hitters/receivers. The last ones dominate the vertical jump height, approach jump height and reaching blocking height tests.
Blockers and setters are better in length parameters as far as girls are concerned. Blockers achieved the best results during vertical jump height, approach jump height and reaching blocking height tests. The players set as “liberos” have scored the most points in body mobility tests.
Based on the analysed information it could be concluded that length parameters have limited relevance regarding result success for young male players. Motor skills are more relevant. The most important ones are hands and legs explosive power. Skills, tactics, competitiveness and team cohesion are essential in this age category.
