Author(s): S Sivakumar and Dr. AS Logeswaran
The purpose of the study was to analyze the anthropometric and physical fitness Parameters among Position wise volleyball players. To achieve the purpose of the study 35 Attackers, 35 Blockers, 25 Setters and 12 Libero players those who represented for the inter-collegiate level tournament from affiliated colleges Bharathiar University, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu.

Only male volleyball players were selected as participants subjects were tested on the selected Parameters. The data pertaining to the Parameters were examined by using analysis of variance (ANOVA) for each variables to determine the differences if any, among the means. Whenever ‘F’ ratio was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was used as post-hoc test to determine the cell mean differences. The level of significance was fixed at.05 level of confidence for all the cases. The result of the study indicates that there is significant difference among Positional-Wise Male Volleyball Players namely Attackers, Blockers Setters and Liberos.
