Abstract

Research was conducted on the sample of 73 female participants, members of volleyball clubs “Jahorina” from Pale and “Student”, aged 10-16 (younger pioneers N=35 and pioneers-cadets N=38). Younger pioneers had been involved in the training process for 1 year whereas pioneer-cadet female participants had been involved in the training process for at least three years. Morphological characteristics were measured on entire sample using the IBP procedure, as well as the vertical jump stiffness assessment using the device ‘Just Jump System’ aim of this research was to determine the connection between anthropometrical variables and jumping performances of female volleyball players. Linear regression analysis results suggest that predictor system of the anthropometrical variables had no statistically significant connection with the criteria in both sub-samples. Common variable in both cases was in very low percentages. Research results suggest that the assessment of muscle strength in explosive motor tasks is independent from the body size and activities of morphological characteristics.
