Let’s play vol­ley­ball

Panay News - - BUSINESS - By Ron Rick D. Deluna,

AC­TU­ALLY, play­ing sports is re­ally im­por­tant in our lives. Aside from the fact that it gives in­nu­mer­able ben­e­fits phys­i­cally, men­tally, psy­cho­log­i­cally and even so­cially it also gives us chances to learn to love it by do­ing it of­ten.

A study showed that sports usu­ally help chil­dren to help them­selves deal with the realms of the world. It makes them think that real­ity is not easy as they think it is thus one must ex­ert ef­fort. Sports or recre­ational games play sig­nif­i­cant role in the lives of in­di­vid­ual es­pe­cially to those who likes to deal with it.

One of the most fa­mous sports in the world is vol­ley­ball. It has been likely listed as one of the most pop­u­lar team sports. In fact, vol­ley­ball has been taught in schools and the in­sti­tu­tions have been cam­paign­ing for stu­dents to deal with it. The ben­e­fits of play­ing vol­ley­ball are nu­mer­ous. Ab­so­lutely many peo­ple seem not to know it, but play­ing such sports brings not only en­thu­si­asm to an in­di­vid­ual but also to the so­ci­ety he/she be­longs to.

As a MAPEH teacher who un­der­stands the value of deal­ing with phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, it ex­cites me that I can teach my stu­dents with such sport and at the same time I can help them to live a healthy life­style. In my lessons, I en­lighten my class that deal­ing with a sport like vol­ley­ball can bring them a lot of ben­e­fits. In this way, they’ll able to un­der­stand the im­por­tance of play­ing it.

As men­tioned, a per­son play­ing vol­ley­ball can ab­so­lutely gain pos­i­tive re­sults. One of those is that, play­ing vol­ley­ball helps us to be phys­i­cally fit thus men­tally healthy. Ac­cord­ing to stud­ies, vol­ley­ball helps us to burn calo­ries and fats in our bod­ies. Since, calo­ries is an im­por­tant com­po­nent of a weight loss it is safe to as­sure that while we are play­ing vol­ley­ball we are slowly gain­ing and shap­ing our bod­ies to a healthy one – for sports keep our body healthy. Men­tally and psy­cho­log­i­cally speak­ing, vol­ley­ball is a help­ful tool to im­prove one’s self- es­teem, self- con­fi­dence, mood, re­duce stress and mo­ti­vate one­self for the op­por­tu­nity to play as a team and the pride to win an ac­com­plish­ment. This will make a per­son also so­cially ac­tive with the mo­ti­va­tion and en­cour­age­ment he/she gets from play­ing vol­ley­ball.

For brief facts about vol­ley­ball, it was in­vented by Wil­liam G. Mor­gan in 1895 and its generic name was “mintonette.” It was de­rived or de­signed as the com­bi­na­tion of basketball, base­ball, tennis and handball. It was then fur­ther de­vel­oped with stan­dard rules needed to play a fair vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment. Play­ing vol­ley­ball is very easy. For recre­ational game it can be played by two per­sons only but for am­a­teur and pro­fes­sional games, it is played by two teams of six play­ers on a court di­vided by a net.

Vol­ley­ball has a very sim­ple ob­jec­tive that is to send the ball over the net so that the op­pos­ing team can­not re­turn the ball or pre­vent it from hit­ting the ground in their court. For rules and reg­u­la­tions, as men­tioned vol­ley­ball has it. Sounds in­ter­est­ing? What are you wait­ing for, wear your shoes now and let’s play vol­ley­ball.
