VOLLEYBALL TRAINING NOT ASSOCIATED WITH MOOD CHANGES IN FEMALES
Moger, L. J., & Raglin, J. S. (1998). Mood state and vertical jump during a season of competition in collegiate volleyball players. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 30(5), Supplement abstract 501.
Mood state is closely related to training load in swimming. An assessment of a similar relationship in volleyball was conducted. POMS was used to measure mood disturbances in mood in female volleyball players (N = 15) at various stages of a competitive season. Vertical jump was used as a single performance test.
All POMS scores, except confusion, changed significantly as some time during the season. No real pattern of factor by stage of training was revealed.
Implication. Training does not appear to be associated with mood changes in volleyball players. Other factors produce such changes.
