Author(s): Ramesh Sharma
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of imagery training on selected skill performance variables of male volleyball players. To achieve the purpose of the present study, 30 male volleyball players were randomly selected from players participated at intercollegiate level. The subject’s age ranged from 18 to 25 years. For this study, pre post random group design was been employed with two groups namely experimental and control group with 15 subjects each. The variables used in this study were serving and passing. Russell lange volleyball test was used to measure the serving and passing ability. The experimental group underwent imagery training for the period of six weeks. The imagery training considered of having auditory listen to a imagery tape. Each participant should listen the auditory and visual for 15 minutes prior to passing and serving performance in volleyball. The control group was not given any treatment. The pre and posttest data were collected before and after training period of both experiential and control groups. The Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to investigate the effect of imagery training on selected skill performance variables of male volleyball players. Imagery training has significant impact on passing and serving among the players of imagery training compared to players of control group.
