Volleyball may be a mostly non-contact sport, but that doesn't mean its players aren't at extreme risk for a plethora of injuries.

Due to the constant swift movements, as well as the often awkward landings and slides, players can incur a game-changing injury in mere seconds. Once these injuries occur, it's not unusual for surgery or extensive periods of rehabilitation to take place, removing the player from the game for extended periods of time or indefinitely.

Once an injury has occurred, it is not uncommon for it to reoccur in the future. The location of the injury becomes vulnerable and the player needs to take extra precautions to ensure there is not a repeat situation.

In addition to being expensive, these activities are intended to meet with a program whose number of parties is absurd. (During just one weekend a team can play between 5 and 8 games, two out of three sets each one of 25 points and the decisive third of 15 points).  Such matches  definitely exposed young athletes to overuse injuries.
