ABSTRACT
With the aim of evaluating the effects of plyometric training on the development of jumping agility, an experimental research program was carried out on a sample of 38 cadet volleyball players. Following the general principles of plyometric training, individual training programs were constructed. In order to evaluate the effects of plyometric training on the development of jumping agility, six variables were used. For the purpose of this research, all six tests for the evaluation of jumping agility were validated. The experiment was realized in the second part of the preliminary period, and lasted for six weeks with two to three training sessions per week. The training of the control group involved technical-tactical exercises. The data were processed with the help of a univariate and multivariate analysis of covariance. On the basis of the research results and the discussion, we can with great certainty conclude that the exercise model that was used, as the basic factor of the experimental group, made a statistically significant contribution to the difference in the increase in jumping agility in comparison to the control group which used technical-tactical exercises for the development of jumping agility.
