This study investigates the effect of movement imagery on learning the forearm pass in volleyball. Twenty four mail students from Physical Education Factuly at Jordan University (19 ± 0.5) years of age. After Completed the Movement Imagery Questionnaire-Revised (MIQ-R; Hall & Martin, 1997) the subjects randomly divided into two groups, experimental group (n = 12) received both physical practice of the skill and mental imagery training units and control group (n = 12) received only physical practice of the skill. Statistical analysis included t-Test for mean at pre and post test for the two groups, and t-Test for mean at post test in the two groups. The results showed significant differences (p < 0.05) in post test between the two groups in favor of the experimental group. Learning a new motor skill through mental movement imagery training and physical practice enhanced learning and improved performance more than physical practice of the skill alone. In conclusions, the combination of mental movement imagery and physical practice enhanced learning and improved motor skill performance.
