Common drills used to evaluate volleyball players.
10 yard Dash
The 10 yard dash is a measure of linear speed and acceleration. Adding in a 5 yard split gives additional insights and is indicative of a typical distance moved on a volleyball court. This requires 2 gates, 3 gates if you are getting the 5 split.
The Pro-Agility is a test of speed, explosion, body control, and ability to change direction. This drill uses a stationary start and requires 1 timing gate. For a 3-point start (the standard for football) we suggest using an additional gate. This gate is placed on a short tripod, aimed down the same line as main laser. This laser is blocked by the athlete's down hand.
Vertical and Approach Vertical Jump
The vertical jump test is a test of lower body power and has been performed for over 100 years. When using Dashr|Jump hardware for this test you will need a Vertec or similar vane based system, and we will make it smart! You can also manually enter jump measurements into the Dashr app. You can record both standing vertical and approach (max) vertical through the app.
Getting biometric/anthropometric data on your athletes is key for both evaluation and tracking progress. You can record bio data manually through the Dashr app, or you can use our BioStation to automate these measurements.
