Literature Review: Volleyball problem for Sports

This “Ten Problems for Sports in the 2020s” booklet will introduce ten relevant problems, namely: coaches, performance, fundamentals, match fixing, politics, talent development, diversity, education, economics, e-sports; for the ten most popular sports in the 2020s world, as for estimated fans number: soccer, cricket, basketball, hockey, tennis, volleyball, table tennis, baseball, American football / rugby, golf.

Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the sports that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. soccer,
  2. cricket,
  3. basketball,
  4. hockey,
  5. tennis,
  6. volleyball,
  7. table tennis,
  8. baseball,
  9. american football / rugby,
  10. golf.

Each sport has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references for each open question and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

6 Volleyball

THE PROBLEM — Volleyball estimated fans worldwide are 900 million in 2020.

Here follows a short introduction to all of them with recent references for own consultation.

CASE STUDIES — … buy this booklet from Amazon …

CONCLUSIONS — The expected main achievement of Volleyball Information System is that the ability to analyze the assessment final results becomes meaningful feedback to students, athletes, or coaches. Force pressure sensors and MEMS inertial motion sensors can be used for performance measurements in volleyball. The data from the floor and motion sensor units can be combined to analyze patterns in volleyball and the floor is capable of showing video. A total of 16 volleyball players were involved in the 2012 South Korea match fixing scandal by deliberately making mistakes when they received, tossed, and spiked the ball. In the United States, a lack of funding in volleyball for meso-level mass participation programs and education of coaches at the macro-level has been highlighted. Volleyball coaches should adopt a cautious approach when attempting to predict the success of early stage players based on anthropometry and volleyball skill tests. Age-diverse teams appear to be less vulnerable to discouragement in the face of setbacks. The use of decision-making training programs/interventions leads to significant improvements in volleyball players’ decision-making. It is necessary to pay attention to intangible assets of a sports club, as these assets are more important in pricing a club. Master the skills of volleyball and experience all the thrills of one of the most complex team sports played today, realistically reproduced in 2019 Spike Volleyball with the powerful Unreal Engine 4.
