Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the annual development of biomotor
characteristics in college volleyball players.
Methods: A total of 16 college male volleyball players (age: 21.75 (4.45) years, body
mass: 78.60 (12.20) kg, and body height: 187.0 (18.9) cm) from Turkish National Volleyball

year) volleyball-specific training and competitions. The 30m sprint, ilinois agility,
countermovement and squat jump, 20m beep test and maximal muscular strength tests of all
participants were measured.
Findings: Significant progress (p<0.05) was monitored in summation 30m sprint,
ilinois agility, countermovement and squat jump, 20m beep test and maximal muscular
strength tests. Findings for the one-way repeated measures ANOVA revealed a considerable
main effect among tests on 30m sprint, ilinois agility, countermovement and squat jump, 20m
beep test and maximal muscular strength tests performance.
Conclusion: The findings of this study indicate that, within a college population of
male volleyball players, enhancing endurance, sprint, jumping and strength characteristics in
regular exercises are moderately associated with improves in aerobic endurance, sprint,
jumping and strength ability.
