Bump, set, and spike is a steady heartbeat. That is the rhythm of a volleyball game. “Mine!”, “I got it!”, “Got it!” You will hear words like these flying out everywhere on a volleyball court. That is a player socializing. Playing volleyball has many advantages health wise.  According to Sara Ipatenco, “Playing volleyball is a healthy way to get some exercise. Regular exercise is crucial for your health because it helps keep your heart in good working order, as well as helping to prevent illnesses and diseases like cardiovascular disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes.”  So why not play volleyball? Other than the physical advantages, volleyball has social benefits.  Volleyball will bring a shy person out of their skin.  It brings many people together under one accord. “Playing volleyball requires that you work with a team to score points and keep the other team from winning. This requires that you work well with your team and gives you valuable opportunities to interact socially with friends and acquaintances.” says Sara Ipatenco.

I play volleyball now. It allowed me to connect with the other players on the team. It does not individualize people. It forces people to work together. It brings people self confidence and self-esteem up.  It boosted my self-confidence and it so for others. After I play a long game of volleyball, all my day’s problems are flushed out of my mind and I crave for more. Volleyball is known to help with many things, bring people together to create strong connections, and relationships, team work, and physical improvement. Why not let volleyball do that for you?
