Abstract:

The aim of this study was to identify determinants of the attack tactics' effectiveness in Elite Youth Men's Volleyball. Eleven matches of the 2007 World Youth Championship were analyzed, totalling 863 actions of reception, 1191 actions of attack and 435 actions of defence. Multinomial logistic regression was applied in order to analyze the association of reception effect, defence effect, attack tempo and attack type, with the attack effectiveness. The reliability of the observation was calculated through Cohen's Kappa, with values being above 0.81. This study showed that the powerful attack increased the chances of scoring in both side-out and transition. Regarding the timing of the attack, 1st tempo increased the chances of scoring in transition. These results show that the Elite Youth male's game claims a more offensive game through powerful and quick attacks.
