Effect of Wait on Volleyball Skills

Volleyball is a game that highly depends on tactics; teams with higher understanding of other teams have a better chance of winning. Teams are also interested in analyzing their own squad to improve their weak points. These analyses are based on statistics, and video analysis of both, the home team and the opponent team. In this paper, we will cover the effect of wait on a player’s performance in each volleyball skill. Our analyses will be done on 79 matches played by volleyball national teams, and clubs from the following countries: “Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia” in local, regional, and international competitions listed here: “FIVB Men’s World Championship 2014 Qualifications, Al Rashid International Volleyball Tournament, Arab 30th and 31st Championship, Lebanese Championship 2012, 2013, 2014” on 50,130 recorded statistics done by the Lebanese statistics team led by Coach John Abou Jaoudeh, and Coach Spyro Klitira.
