To achieve the purpose, 45 Volleyball players were selected from various schools in Tirunelveli District and their age is ranged between 15 to 17 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into three groups namely Group I Cognitive techniques training, Group II somatic technique training and Group III Control group. Group I underwent 6 weeks cognitive techniques training, Group II underwent 6 week somatic technique training. The criterion variables chosen for this investigation are serving and passing and it was measured by using Brumback Volleyball service and bump to self tests were followed. The collected data from the three groups prior to and post experimentation were statistically analyzed by using dependent t-test and ANCOVA, to find out the significant difference between pretest and posttest among the selected three groups. Whenever a obtained ‘F’ ratio values was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences, if any. The level of significance was fixed at .05 levels, which was considered to be appropriate. It was concluded that there was significant difference exists between both experimental groups and control group. Cognitive techniques training group are found better in serving and passing when compared with somatic techniques training and control groups.
