Les décisions du passeur de haut niveau en volley-ball sur side out : quatre études de cas

Abstract : In agreement with Eloi (2009), all specialists agree to recognize the dominating role of the setter in the performance of a volleyball team. It exists paradoxically, only few works available on this theme. The object of this thesis is the elaboration of a modelling of its decision-making activity at a high level, in situation of game. The stake is to characterize the complexity of the tactical decisions, by underlining the dynamic relations between the elaborate aspects and the sources of more general influence. By adapting the modelling of Mouchet (2003), we operate a friction of several scientific paradigms which offer various explanatory models of the cognition, bringing a particular lighting on the decision-making behaviours. Our epistemological posture consists in understanding the complexity (Morin, Le Moigne,1999; Le Moigne,1999) by a systemic approach, by investigating the decision-making behaviours in ecological situation, and by taking into account the point of view of the subject. We make the hypothesis that the system of influence, constituted by the culture, by the momentary environment and by the experience of the person, fills the decision-making activity by being compacted in the current action. Every player builds his own world by integrating the various levels according to a singular logic. Our study concerns four case studies of international French setters. To collect data of " the hidden part " (Gouju, 2001), we set up a methodology established by an armed observation, by a directive semi interview, by a simulation, and by video feedback (principle of triangulation).
