Volleyball is a sport originated in the United States, and is now just achieving the type of popularity in the U.S. that it has received on a global basis, where it ranks behind only soccer among participation sports.

For that the nature and purpose of the present study were clearly informed to them. To test the significance of the mean difference among the teams ranked winner, runner, third and fourth on criterion measures of cognitive anxiety and self-confidence one-way analysis of variance was used in case of significance of mean difference observed on criterion measure, to find out which pair of group grown up, as post-hoc test the schefee test was applied. It is the most stringiest form test. In the criterion measures used in the study, significance mean difference was observed among the teams rankings of semifinals (winner, runner, third and fourth places) on cognitive anxiety and self-confidence.
