The aim of this research is to determine the effects of game-based training on explosive strength and accuracy in adolescent volleyball players. The authors hypothesized that this program might significantly improve explosive strength and accuracy in adolescent volleyball players. Fifty six adolescent volleyball players participated in this study (16,26±1,01). Players were randomly allocated into a game-based conditioning group (n = 30) or a control group (n = 26). Each player participated in a 8-week training program that included 3 organized court training sessions per week. Training effects were analyzed using a multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) and one-way univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA). Game-based conditioning training induced a significant improvement (p < 0.05) in squat jump (SJ), countermovement jump (CMJ), sitting (MEDS) and standing medicine ball throw (MEDST), whereas traditional volleyball activities did not significantly improved any of the tested variabl...es. In SJ and CMJ results revealed a statistically significant difference between groups pre- to post-training (p < 0.05). After 8 weeks of training, there were increases in two medicine ball tests (MEDS and MEDST) for training group (p<0.05). There were no significant changes for lying medicine ball throw in both groups (p> 0.05). Experimental group did not significantly improved accuracy in contrast to control group which had significant improvement in several variables. Game-based training appears to be an effective way of improving explosive strength in adolescent volleyball players. The results of this study indicate that game-based training method was more effective for explosive strength performance than traditional instructional programme.
