Abstract
Volleyball was invented 100 years ago in 1895 by the American William Morgan. Today it is generally considered to be the world’s largest sport in terms of the number of active players, estimated of 200 million players. AGILITY is defined as the ability to sprint accelerate and de accelerate alongside change of direction. PLYOMETRICS was created by doctor Yuri verkhoshansky former soviet sports scientist and coach in the 1960’s. Plyometrics are the training technique used by athletes in all types of sports to increase Strength and explosiveness. A Comparative study involving volleyball players of convenient sample and the sample size is 24 students - 12 in each group. Group A-plyometric training Group B–agility ladder drills. It shows a significant effect in statistical analysis with p-value (0.05) within the group A and B. The present data indicate that both the training was effective in improving agility among volleyball players. The pre and post-test values of T test for agility between the group-A and group B is analyzed using un paired t-test for 22 degree of freedom and at 5% of significance, the t table value is 2.074 and the calculated t value is 3.72. since the calculated t value is greater than the table t value. The study concludes that (GROUP-A) plyometric training and (GROUP-B) agility ladder drills show a significant effect on improving agility, when comparing both groups plyometric training (GROUP-A) shows more improvement than (GROUP-B) Agiltry ladder drills among volleyball players.
