The study aims to verify the effects of volleyball programs on the fitness and attention-intensive abilities of students with intellectual disabilities in middle school. Physical strength and attention concentration were analyzed to verify the effectiveness of the volleyball program. The volleyball program was applied to the experimental group three times a week, 90 minutes a week, a total of 36 times for 12 weeks. To verify the effectiveness of physical strength and attention concentration, the PPS-D intellectual disability student test and ATA concentration test were used to verify the effectiveness of attention concentration The six-minute walking figure related to cardiopulmonary functions was improved compared to those with intellectual disabilities who did not participate in the volleyball program, the report showed. We can see improvements in muscular function-related sit-ups and flexibility-related sit-ups compared to those with intellectual disabilities who did not participate, and significant changes have been seen in the distance of the place-wide jump related to net worth. We could also confirm that it had a positive effect on the improvement of selective attention concentration, and that the change in self-control, continuous attention, and selective attention among middle school students had a positive effect on the improvement.

본 연구는 배구 프로그램이 중학교 지적장애 학생의 체력과 주의집중력에 미치는 효과를 검증하는데 목적이 있다. 배구 프로그램의 효과성을 검증하기 위해 체력과 주의집중력에 대해 분석하였으며, 배구 프로그램의 실험집단 대상을 주 3회 90분씩 12주간 총 36회 적용하였으며 체력과 주의집중력 효과성을 검증하기 위하여 PAPS-D 지적장애 학생용 검사 및 주의집중력에 효과성을 검증하기 위하여 ATA 주의집중력 검사를 사용하여 분석하였다. 배구 프로그램에 참가한 지적장애 학생이 참여하지 않은 지적장애 학생보다 심폐기능에 6분 걷기의 수치가 향상된 것으로 나타났으며. 참가한 지적장애 학생이 참여하지 않은 지적장애 학생보다 근기능과 관련된 윗몸 말아 올리기, 유연성과 관련된 윗몸 앞으로 굽히기가 향상된 것을 알 수 있으며, 순발력에 관련된 제자리멀리뛰기에서 유의한 차이가가 나타났다. 또한 선택적 주의집중력 향상에서는 긍정적 영향을 주었음을 확인할 수 있으며, 중학교 지적장애 학생의 자기통제력, 지속적 주의력 변화, 선택적 주의력 변화가 향상에 긍정적인 영향을 미쳤음을 확인할 수 있었다.
