National Academy of Sports Medicine answeredYour intake should be approximately 60-65% of calories from carbohydrates and the balance, split between healthy fats and protein. Volleyball requires explosive power, quickness, strength, endurance, and precision. Competitions can last several hours and tournaments can go on for days. Your calorie needs depend on the intensity and duration of your training and competition, as well as your age, gender, height, and weight. A 130-pound volleyball player uses about 8.4 calories per minute of vigorous volleyball play. A 180-pound athlete burns about 10.4 calories per minute of play.
