The aim of this study was to evaluate the technical and tactical performance of volleyball players and compare them according to their experience level in sport. Twenty-four teams finalists in the 2010 State Championship of Santa Catarina in categories under-15, under-16 and under-17 have participated in the study. The instruments used were a questionnaire to athletes to identify the level of sport experience and Technical-Tactical Evaluation Tool in Volleyball (IAD-VB) by Collet et al. (2011) to evaluate the technical-tactical actions. For data analysis we used descriptive statistics and multinomial logistic regression, in the SPSS software, adopting the significance level p <0.001. The results indicated that the category under-15 had no relationship between technical and tactical performance of players and experience in the sport, confirming the assumptions of a long-term sports development. The sports experience has favored the technical and tactical development of young volleyball players, especially in the categories under-16 and under-17.
