The purpose of this study was to survey and compiling a talent identification model for volleyball elite players. The statistical population of this study was all elite volleyball boys’ players in ardabil city. Among the statistical population, 16 individuals were selected as a sample. All tests were performed on three consecutive days. On the first day, anthropometric features including lengths, environment, latitudes as well as body composition were measured. Then on the second day, the physiological and physical fitness features including: anaerobic capacity, agility, speed, muscle strength, reaction time, coordination, and power were taken. Finally, on the third day, the flexibility, muscular endurance and cardiorespiratory fitness were taken. SPSS software version 23 was used for statistical analysis and excel software was used for charts. The results showed that ardabil players are at a low level physiologically and anthropometric. The results of the study showed that the average speed of players was 5.92 seconds, the mean agility was 12.09 seconds, the average anaerobic capacity was 426 watts, the mean cardiorespiratory endurance was 43.24 ml / kg/min, the mean set up 44. 12 per minute The mean of vertical jump was 52.5 cm, the mean flexibility of 43.51cm, the average power of 50.56 kg, the mean coordination of 66.06 min / min, the mean time of the reaction time was 0.3152, as well as the mean height of 183.45 cm, the mean of the sitting high 94.10 cm, the mean of the wingspan was 194.35 cm, the mean palm length was 11.11 cm, the average fat percentage was 21.38 kg, and the average fat mass was 62.86 kg. The results indicate that the players in ardabil are at the lower level in terms of anthropometric and physiological indices. From the finding of this study, it can be conducted that the players of the present research study were low on anthropometric and psychological characteristics and these players are weak and have deficiency in terms of physiological and physical fitness that are modifiable defects, more than anthropometric.
