Abstract:

The aim of this study was to explore possible statistically significant differences between winning and loosing teams, on the basis of 6 situational parameters (serve, serve reception, block, defense, attack and counterattack) in two summary rotations (rotation "4-3-2" – when setter is in front line, and rotation "1-6-5", when setter is in back line). We used a sample of 19 games played in the European youth volleyball championship in Zagreb 2003. Discriminative analysis (standard method) was employed to confirm or deny possible significance. Analysis showed significant differences between two groups (p<0.01) in both "summary rotations". Winning teams performed all game phases better. Two variables with highest projection on discriminative functions in both summary rotations are ATTACK and SERVE. Possible influence of the quality of the performance of precedent game phase on the next game phase on the projection on discriminant functions can be occurred.
