Comparison of rally times and action effectiveness between professional volleyball and school sub-19
This study aimed to compare the rally times, the pattern of complexes and actions performed between professional volleyball players and players under 19. Four matches were evaluated, one male and another female from the Brazilian Superleague (SL - professional volleyball) and another from the Games of the Federal Institutes (JIF - under-19 school volleyball) using the Adobe®Premiere®Pro software, where the rally times and their intervals, % of density, the types and numbers of complexes and the actions in the rallies were analyzed, in addition to the point obtained in the rally. Under-19 school players and female volleyball players showed longer rally times and % of density, reducing recovery time. Under-19 school players held a greater number of complexes in the rally than the professionals. Complexes with 3 and 1 actions were the most performed and showed the highest occurrence of points. Under-19 school players revealed a higher occurrence of points through fundamental errors (blocking, defense, and attack), whereas there were more points of attack in professional games. Serve errors in the men's super league were more relevant than in the other categories. In conclusion, under-19 school players differ from professional players in rally times, complexes, and action patterns, due to less proficiency in the sport.
Keywords: Game time, Complex I and II, Occurrence of points.
