This article presents the result of the study, which concerns the study of the peculiarities of the anthropometric values of the girdle of the upper and lower extremities and a number of morphofunctional index values in female athletes of adolescence who go in for volleyball. Particular attention is paid to the study of the sizes, types and forms of the bone pelvis of athletes, with the allocation of their pathological changes. It was found that in the studied group of athletes there is not a single girl with a gynecomorphic sexual somatotype, while female volleyball players with a transitional mesomorphic sexual somatotype dominate, with its maximum values close to the indices of an inverse sexual somatotype. It was recorded that in the entire group of female volleyball players a narrow pelvis was identified, mainly in the form of a generally uniformly narrowed pelvis, and the presence of a simple flat pelvis in 11 (9.74%) girls, and in 7 (6.19%), with a transversely narrowed pelvis, with I degree of its narrowing in 13 (11.50%) female volleyball players. It was determined that 49 (43.36%) female volleyball players have I degree of flat feet, and all female athletes have long and narrow feet. It was also found that the indicators of all morphofunctional index values reliably indicate the processes of hyperandrogenism and masculinization occurring in the body of female volleyball players from the study group. The revealed somatometric and morphofunctional characteristics of young female volleyball players can be interpreted as a result of preliminary sports selection, and as a direct consequence of their intense physical loads of their training and competitive sports activity.
