Abstract: 

In this study, the prevalence, type and the probable causes of sport injuries in Iranian super league man Volleyball players was evaluated. The study was descriptive research and the statistical population was about 160 Volleyball players that were present in Iran's super league in the year 2005. The statistical sample was about 60 mans with at least 3 years experience in Volleyball. The information was gathered using a combined questionnaire by interviewing the Volleyball players and their coaches. During the training and competition seasons, lower limbs with 44% and 46/8 % were the most vulnerable organs to injuries. During training, joint injuries with 46/1 % and during match, muscular injuries with 43/5 % were the most common kind of injuries.
