DIFFERENCES IN PULMONARY VENTILATION FUNCTION PARAMETERS IN YOUNG VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS ACCORDING TO COMPETITIVE SUCCESS CRITERION

Sanja Vitaić, Marko Erceg, Mirjana Milić

Spirometry is a very acceptable method of sports diagnostics; due to its simple application, it is used in measuring lung capacity and speed of air flow through the airways. The aim of this research was to determine the sizes of lung function indicators in 56 young female volleyball players from Split-Dalmatia County, whose mean chronological age was 14.1 years, as well as the differences according to the criterion of competitive success. The application of Student’s independent samples t-test indicated a significant difference in the defined subgroups of successful (n=32) and less successful (n=24) players, regarding the indicators of absolute value of maximum expiratory flow at 50% and maximum expiratory flow at 25%.The obtained results indicate the importance of dynamic lung indicators in the differentiation of successful and less successful young female volleyball players.
