Sports are a unifying medium and at the same time become an arena for every state
citizen to fight for his country. To get good results, it requires athletes who have skills in the
sports they are involved in. To print sportsmen, special requirements are needed in order to
create or be born sportsmen who are superior and accomplished.
The formation of a superior sportsman starting from the nursery means that a coach must
be able to see who the potential athletes are, including Paralympic athletes. This will be the
beginning of the athlete's formation process. The more observant the coach is in selecting and
choosing, the higher the potential for creating superior and accomplished Paralympic athletes.
This study aims to identify the anthropometry and biomotor which are carried out on
athletes with disabilities that will be very beneficial for the coach in preparing training programs
and providing targets to bring the athlete's physical condition to the level desired by the coach.
In addition, the analysis carried out on elementary anthropometric and physical
components will provide an advantage when the coach wants to develop tactics or game
strategies and identify potential athletes (Yüksel1 & Sevindi, 2018). The coach's assessment
when selecting athletes contributed 44.4% to the anthropometric and somatotype components of
the body, the rest was based on the psychology, motorbike and psychomotor aspects of the
athlete (Limoochi, 2012).
This study used a quantitative descriptive approach, conducted to identify and study the
anthropometry and biomotor of volleyball athletes in the Indonesian National Paralympic
Committee. The use of the cross-sectional method in this study is useful in answering the problem formulation proposed by the researcher, where the data is obtained through
measurements at one time.
The population in this study were athletes with disabilities in sitting volleyball who are
under the supervision of the National Paralympic Indonesia and are conducting training centers
for the preparation of the 2020 Asean Para Games. The sample included in this study is the entire
population of athletes with disabilities in the national sitting volleyball sport, totaling 11 people
