The aim of this study is to determine the effects of the training done by the students on their respiration and blood circulation systems who plays volleyball, aged 11-14, at Izmir. 42 students doing sports average age 12.93 ± 0.74 and 36 students not doing any sports, with the age average 12.46 ± 0.91, voluntary involved in this study, which aims to determine the effects of the training done by test subjects on respiration and blood circulation systems. Parameters of age, height, weight, resting pulse measures, systolic-diastolic blood pressure, and vital capacity (VC), force vital capacity (FVC), force expiration volume (FEV), and maximum voluntary ventilation (MVV) values of respiration system were recorded. Findings obtained by SPSS 11.0 statistics program. The differences between the averages of groups were examined with independent t test at 0.01 and 0.05 levels. The differences between groups in terms of age, height, weight and diastolic blood pressure valves are not significant. There were significant difference on resting pulse and systolic blood pressure, vital capacity, force vital capacity and force expiration volume, maximum voluntary ventilation values of experimental group. In conclusion, resting pulse and blood pressure values of the students, who do training, were found to be lower; the respiration values VC, FVC, FEV1 and MVV were higher than those of the students not doing sports.
