Abstract

This study analyses the setting in volleyball of two setters that play at the highest level of Spanish volleyball, in order to find opponent's movements pattern that may be predict where the ball will be set. A descriptive research design has been done by kinematical analysis through cinematographic techniques. The results indicate that relationships between the wide angle view of some body segments' and different setting tendencies can be established. Results show that analysis of wider angles of elbow, shoulder and hip segments can be useful to anticipate the setting of quick attack in volleyball.
KEY WORDS: Motor Behaviour, Volleyball, Kinematical Analysis, Anticipation, Setting
