Six scouting key performance indicators including, serving, service receiving, setting, spiking, spiking receiving and blocking with corresponding results of either getting or losing a point or nothing by team from all sets and matches in the tournament were collected for ranking. Advanced Performance Analysis software (Focus X2 version 1.5) was used to summarize collected scouting data and were presented in terms of frequencies, percentages, and means and standard deviations. Independent-samples t-test and Kendall’s Correlation were employed for data analysis at p< .05 level of significance.
Correlations of the effectiveness of spiking skills between successful teams and those of unsuccessful teams were 0.393 and -0.400, respectively. By comparing skill effectiveness, only spiking skill exhibited significant difference at p < 0.05 level.
Spiking is the most important skill determining the success of the teams in the National Volleyball Tournament 2019.
