ABSTRACT
This study compared the effect of the Gallwey inner game method with the progressive method, as presented in the U.S. Volleyball Association Level 1Technical Manual, on the learning of volleyball skills. The interaction of the methods with hemispheric dominance was also investigated. Hemisphericity was assessed using the Herrmann Participant Survey Form (HPSF). Volleyball skill was evaluated with a modification of the Barbarich (1980) Forearm Pass Test (BFPT) and a team game called cooperation. Undergraduate volunteers were divided into four groups. Two groups were taught by the inner game method and the other two groups were taught by the progressive method. Analysis of variance on the gain scores of the BFPT revealed no significant differences between the methods for forearm pass. There were also no differences on the team scores for cooperation, nor was there any significant interaction between brain dominance and either method. Thus, the prediction that right hemisphere dominant students would profit more if taught by the inner game method and that left hemisphere dominant students would profit more through the progressive method was not realized.
