Dr. Marwa Ahmed Fadl, Mohammed Nader Shalaby
The current research aims to identify the effects of visual exercises on improving the serve skill for junior female volleyball players. The researchers used the experimental approach (two-group design) with pre- and postmeasurements. The researchers purposefully chose (27) junior female volleyball players from Ismaily Sports Club. Five players were recruited as a pilot sample while two others were excluded due to non-punctuality in training. The main sample (n=20) was divided into two equivalent groups (experimental – control = 10). Results indicated that:
- The visual exercises program improved the visual abilities of the experimental group, compared with the control group. Improvement percentages ranged from (9.408%) as the least value on the Saccade test to (44.557%) as the max value on the Spontaneous test.
- Visual exercises improved the technical performance of the serve skill of the experimental group, compared with the control group with improvement percentage of (30.273%).
- Visual exercises proved effective in improving visual abilities and the serve skill in volleyball.
