In addition to preparing youth volleyball players for travel team and school play there are physical and mental benefits to the game for players.
- Improves hand-eye coordination: Youth Volleyball is all about hand-eye coordination. When players serve, they follow the ball with your eyes, and strike the ball at the right point. Defensively, players must react to where the ball is going and get in position to make a play. While setting hand-eye coordination helps players see where teammates are, to make sure they are giving a good set.
- Builds agility, coordination, speed, and balance: Due to quick changes of pace and direction, volleyball places a large number of demands on the technical and physical skills of a player. In 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.
- Builds muscular strength: Volleyball requires a strong chest and core muscles for nearly every play. Passing is essentially a squat, and that requires the use of legs to generate power. When players set, it requires the use of arms, legs, and hands and thighs. Strong hands also prevent injuries.
- Improves interpersonal skills: Volleyball requires that teammates work cooperatively at a breakneck pace. Leadership and cooperation skills are number one. Players also develop the interpersonal skills while handling exhilarating victories and devastating losses. The interpersonal skills learned build character that transfer to dealing with others in other situations.
- 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 improve your self-confidence, self-esteem. Involvement in youth volleyball can also improve your motivation and ability to succeed. Cooperative efforts lead to the success or failure of the team. Team members encourage one another during practice and in the game to give everyone the confidence to keep on trying to master and perfect the necessary skills to win.
