A systematic increase in the level of physical fitness, stress resistance, and social adaptation of young people is an important task of modern society. Its solution helps to improve the health of the younger generation and increase its labor potential. This is especially true for a wide range of modern young people with a low level of physical development and various chronic diseases. A stable increase in motor activity stimulates the adaptive and regulatory capabilities of all internal organs and forms the basis of socially responsible behavior in students. As a result of increased physical activity, the functions of the cardiovascular, respiratory and musculoskeletal systems increase, and the body's sensitivity to emotional and physical overload decreases. In addition, regular exercise increases a person's social contacts, creativity, and quality of life. Regular football, volleyball, and basketball activities significantly improve the quality of life of youth students. As a result of playing sports, they increase the level of physical fitness, stress resistance, and the degree of socialization. Analyzing the data obtained, it can be argued that amateur sports develop the physical qualities of students, strengthen their psychological characteristics and contribute to their fuller inclusion in society.
