This paper aims to identify the level of peripheral perception of volleyball players, the level of proprioception among the research sample, and the level of the relationship between perception of the peripherals and proprioception among the research sample. The researchers used the descriptive approach in correlational relations due to its suitability to the research problem. The research community included a group of volleyball players in Iraq, where the sample included 28 players, eight of whom were excluded for conducting exploratory experiments, as the sample included Al-Shorta, Army, and Industry clubs. One of the essential results reached by the researcher is that: Advanced volleyball players have high abilities in perceiving the peripheral and receiving proprioception. The tests used have proven their efficiency and accuracy in measuring the research variables; there is a direct correlation between the ability to receive deep sense and the ability to perceive the peripherals., and there is a correlation between the internal and external senses and cognitive ability. One of the essential recommendations recommended by the researchers is that: carrying out similar studies on different samples in terms of the type of game or age group, adopting the Vienna Test System for Psychological Measurement and Evaluation in measuring psychological abilities due to its accuracy and credibility, and adopting the Al-Nuwaini test in measuring proprioception due to its accuracy and reliability
