Eighty volleyball players from the various schools of Dakshina Kannada in Karnataka were selected as subjects and their age ranged from 14 to 17 years. The subjects were divided into four equal groups. The first group underwent plyometric and specific training with skill training (n=20), the second group underwent plyometric with skill training (n=20), the third group underwent skill training (n=20) and the fourth group acted as the control group they did not practice any specific training. The selected variables were assessed by the leg explosive power (vertical jump test), flexibility (sit and reach test) and volleying ability (Brady volleyball test) conducted before and after the 12 weeks of training regimen.
