Introduction: In this research we are deal with two teams of the super league of Kosovo in volleyball. The goal of this study is to verify the differences between the two teams in volleyball in some anthropometric characteristics, basic motor skills and situational tests. Methods: For the realization of this research, there were included 12 volleyball player from the team KV “Prishtina" and 12 from the team KV "Universiteti AAB". There are applied 4 anthropometric variables (body weight, body height, arm length, forearm length), 5 basic motor variables (long jump from place, high jump from the place taping hand, taping feet, jogging with 20 meters with a fast start), and 7 situational tests (pass the ball with the fingers on target vertical expulsion of the ball with the forearm ("hammer") in vertical target, passing the ball with the fingers in a horizontal target, the expulsion of the ball with the forearm ("hammer") in horizontal target, pass the ball with fingers to jump in the horizontal target, tennis service in horizontal target, the target service with the horizontal jump. For processing the obtained results from the measurements and proving the difference between the teams in anthrop motored parameters, was used the discriminatory analysis using the t-test for independent variables. Results: The results obtained show that the players of the two volleyball teams, involved in research do not distinguish between them in anthropometric characteristics (p> 0:05). The team KV "Prishtina" has had better results in some explosive force motor variables and situational tests (p <0:05), which are also important for success in the game of volleyball. Discussion: To prove statistical differences between the two teams VC "Pristina" and VC. "AAB" in each variable is used T - test. Through this method can be verified the change between two arithmetic means. To achieve the statistical validity of differences between two groups in sample above 20 entities, the value of must be T > 1.97, at the statistical significance level of p < 0.05. Results from our sample showed that between VC. "Pristina" and VC. "AAB", important statistical changes were in those motoric tests. High jumping, foot taping, Passing the ball with hammer to the wall, Tactical accurate Service, Accuracy of service with jump and Standing long jump length.
