The purpose of this study is to examine the team cohesion pattern between male and female secondary school volleyball team from Larut Matang and Selama districts. A total of 192 volleyball players (96 men and 96 women) were selected as respondents. This study is a quantitative survey which adopted the Group Environment Questionnaire (GEQ: Carron, Widmeyer, & Brawley, 1985) which contains 18 items and four cohesion dimensions. It was employed to identify the team cohesion pattern of the aforementioned teams in the quarter and semi-final stage. The data obtained were analysed using descriptive and independent sample t test. The results demonstrated that the team with a higher team cohesion pattern won the quarter-finals and the semi-finals as compared to losing teams. The findings further indicate that there are significant differences in the winning team in the quarter-finals. However, there was no significant difference in the men and women team who lost or won in the semi-finals. This suggests that teams that do not exhibit strong team cohesion amongst the team members, were found to lose the matches played and demonstrated inconsistency in their performance. The present study reveals that team integrity cohesion is a non-trivial element in team sports and the coach should emphasise on team cohesion before, during and after the match to form a better performing team in future competitions.
