The aim of the study is to assess the relationship psychomotor abilities in relation to selected sports skill in volleyball. A group of One Hundred Twenty (N=120) male Inter University Level Volleyball Players of northern region of India were selected purposively to attain the objectives of the study. All the subjects, after having been informed about the objective and protocol of the study, gave their consent and volunteered to participate in this study. Online Pearson Correlation Coefficient Calculator used in data analysis. The Pearson’s product moment correlation coefficient method used to find out the relationship between selected psychomotor abilities, coordinative abilities and skill related components of fitness with selected sports skill in volleyball. The level of p£0.05 was considered significant. Summarizing from the above findings we can say that the psychomotor abilities (i.e., Kinesthetic Perception and Speed of Movement) significantly influence the performance of Serve, setting and reception in volleyball players.
