Abstract
Elite beach volleyball can be played with specialized positions (blockers and defenders) yet research addressing the differences between these players is lacking. Moreover, research in junior beach volleyball is very scarce. Therefore, the primary goal of this study was to describe then compare playing techniques and tactics between blockers and defenders (and universal athletes for women only) at the 2011 Junior (U21) FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships to see whether differences existed between these athletes. Multiple actions from each skill (serving, serve reception, setting, attacking, blocking, defense) were recorded. Results revealed significant differences between serving technique (p<0.05) and quality (p<0.05) between blockers and defenders for men, as well as blockers, defenders and universal athletes for women (technique, p<0.001; quality, p<0.05). Lastly, where possible, secondary comparisons were made between junior men and women, as well as between junior and senior athletes.
