The doctoral dissertation was done with the aim of determining the effects a programmed training would have on the changes in the explosive strength and agility of young female volleyball players. The sample was constituted of 30 female volleyball players, aged 14 to 16, who, at the time of the testing process, were active players of two volleyball clubs from Nis, OK ‘Desetka’ and OK ‘Millennium’. The examinees were divided into two groups – the experimental one (n=15) and the control group (n=15). The experimental group was comprised of the players from the club OK ‘Desetka’, who, apart from the basic technical and tactical training process, underwent a specially designed programme for developing explosive power and agility two times a week (on Tuesdays and Thursdays). The experimental programme was applied during the period pf preparations before the official beginning of the regional competitions for cadets. The control group was comprised of the players from the club OK ‘Millennium...’, who, during the same period of time, underwent only those training sessions which had previously been planned within the annual plan and programme of the club. The sample of the measuring instruments for evaluating the explosive strength included four sets of tests: squat jump (SJ), countermowement jump (CMJ), drop jump (DJ),one-legged countermovement jump (OLCMJ). The agility of the examinees was evaluated through seven tests: T-test, Hexagon Agility Test, Illinois Agility Test, 9-6-3-6-9 Agility Test, Japan Agility Test, 505 Agility Test, Step-Hop Agility Test. Data analysis was done by the Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test. The effects of the progremmed training on the development of the explosive strength and agility of the young female volleyball players was determined by the Covariance Analysis, AKNOVA. The results obtained in such a way showed the statistically significant improvement in the parameters tested within the experimental group. The difference was insignificant in the OLCMJ test only. The results point to the conclusion that the experimental training programme had positive effects on the changes of explosive strength and agility of young female volleyball players.
