Benefits of Playing Volleyball

Burns calories and fat

Harvard Medical School reports a person can burn between 90 to 133 calories during a half-hour game of non-competitive, non-beach volleyball, depending on a person’s weight, while a competitive gym game of volleyball burns between 120 to 178 calories. An hour-long game of volleyball on the much less stable ground of sand can burn up to 480 calories.

Tones and shapes the body

The physical activities involved in playing volleyball will strengthen the upper body, arms, and shoulders as well as the muscles of the lower body. Playing volleyball also improves the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.

Increases metabolic rate

Playing volleyball enhances your energy level and improves your overall performance in other sports and workouts.

Improves hand-eye coordination

Volleyball is all about hand-eye coordination. When you serve, you must follow the ball with your eyes, and strike the ball at the right point. On defense, you must react to where the ball is going and get in position to make a play. While setting, your hand-eye coordination helps you see where your hitters are, to make sure to give them a good set.

Builds agility, coordination, speed, and balance

During the course of play, players are required to serve, pass, set, attack, block and dig the ball. These skills require flexibility, good balance, upper and lower body strength and speed in order to be played effectively.

Heart healthy

By getting your heart rate up, your body will circulate more blood and nutrients throughout your body, which improves your overall health.

Builds muscular strength

Volleyball requires a strong chest and core muscles for nearly every play. When you pass, you mimic a squat, and you must use your legs to generate power. When you set, you must use arms, legs, and hands, especially your thighs. When the ball is coming to you, you need to load your legs and arms, and push up. Your hands need to be strong to prevent injury.

Increases aerobic ability

According to Well Source’s Aerobic Mile Chart, you expend the same amount of energy playing an easy, slow-paced game of volleyball for 20 minutes as you would jogging one mile. You expend the same amount of energy spent jogging a mile by playing a vigorous 12-minute game of volleyball.

Improves interpersonal skills

Volleyball requires that teammates work cooperatively, and at a fast pace. Leadership and cooperation skills provide valuable lessons that help us in other aspects of our lives.

Boosts mood and increases drive to succeed

Your involvement in volleyball can improve your mood, reduce stress and encourage pride in your accomplishments as a team member. The activity can also improve your self-confidence, self-esteem, your body image and make you feel happier about life in general. Involvement in volleyball can also improve your motivation and ability to succeed.
