Hakan Acar, Nebahat Eler


Body composition and the skill of jumping are very important for high physical performance in volleyball. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship between body composition and jumping performance in female volleyball players aged 14-17. 74 female volleyball players volunteered to participate in the study. The height, body weight, body mass index, body fat percentage, body muscle mass and trunk fat percentage measurements were taken and the vertical jump and standing long jump tests were applied. The data were evaluated with the SPSS 16 statistical software program, the Pearson Correlation test was done for the statistical analysis and the significance level was determined as p< 0.05. The athletes’ vertical jump and standing long jump values were found statistically to have a negative relationship with height, body fat percentage, body muscle mass and body fat percentage, whereas a positive relationship was found between vertical jump and standing long jump values and body weight (p< 0.05). As a result, it was determined that body composition in volleyball players affects jumping performance.
