Sports have become as competitive as other fields in the world. In ancient times, our ancestors exhibited the extraordinary talents in terms of physical activity. But now it has become completely professional. Somehow or other irrespective of age the human race is involved in different kinds of sports either for recreation or competition. In the present world, Sports have become extremely competitive. It is not mere participation or practice that makes an individual victorious. Sports life is affected by various factors like physiology, biomechanics, sports training, sports medicine, sociology and coaching, computer application and psychology and so on. The purpose of the present study, 90 players were selected as samples from Anna University affiliated colleges, Coimbatore District in the year of 2019 - 2020. Finally sixty men volleyball players were randomly selected as subjects for the present study. They were divided into three groups. Each group consists of 20 subjects. Group -I Pre-Season Strength Training Group (PSTG), Group - II Pre-Season Plyometric Training Group (PPTG) and Group - III control group (CG). The ages of subjects were ranged from 18-25. In the present study are significant source to maintain the skill performance variables is serving ability and with its related physical fitness variables is speed and the physiological variables is resting heart rate. The present study pays attention mainly on testing the means of three groups (two experimental and one control) and secondarily deals with the increase of means in each group from baseline to post treatment for various measures. The statistical tools used are the analysis of co-variance was applied. To determine whether the training programmes produced significantly different improvements in selected variables after 12 weeks of training the analysis of co-variance was used. The result of this study indicates that there is insignificant difference in speed and resting heart rate among players of volleyball game. The hypothesis of this study stated that there would be significant difference in serving ability among players of volleyball game. From the result of this study it is observed that there is significant improvement in all the variables.
