Volleyball players are at high risk of overuse should injuries, with spike biomechanics a perceived risk factor. This study compared spike kinematics between elite, male, volleyball players with and without a history of shoulder injuries. Height, mass, maximum jump height, passive shoulder rotation range of motion (ROM), active trunk ROM were collected on elite players with (13) and without (11) shoulder injury history and compared using independent samples t-tests (p<0.05). The average of spike kinematics at impact and range 0.1 seconds before and after impact during down the line and cross court spike types were compared using linear mixed models in SPSS (p<0.01). No differences were detected between the injured and uninjured groups. Thoracic rotation and shoulder abduction at impact and range of shoulder rotation velocity differed between spike types. The ability to tolerate the differing demands of the spike types could be used as return to play criteria for injured athletes.
