“Stronger Family, More

Volleyball”

The FIVB aspires to be an agent of integration among

members of the volleyball family, and the driving force

behind increasing the sport’s reach around the world.

Through development projects, knowledge management

initiatives, grassroots and ‘Sport for All’ events, the

organisation aims to raise the profile of volleyball and

beach volleyball as the

number one family entertainment

sport in the world.

Development projects/

initiatives

There are 222 national federations affiliated with the

FIVB and their strengths, needs and constraints differ

vastly. Through a project-based approach the FIVB gives

all its members and external stakeholders (international

organisations for example), the opportunity to ensure

that local solutions are used to boost development

and growth of the sport. This is done through

coaching programmes, ‘Sport for All’ activities, school

programmes, workshops and ‘Train the Trainer’ events

as well as festivals.

The FIVB aims to build bridges and to

ensure the social relevance of the sport

and the continuous improvement of its

members.

#VolleyballYourWay

Events

Thousands of people around the world

have been introduced to volleyball

through grassroots events.

Volleyball YourWay

, a newmovement launched in 2015 by

the FIVB,has opened the door toa range of opportunities for

players of all ages. ‘Sport for All’ activities, organised during

major events like the Olympic Games, have highlighted

the accessibility of the sport of volleyball. The movement

provides everyone the opportunity to play volleyball in

their local communities and encourages different ways of

playing and enjoying the sport.

Knowledge management

The FIVB continues to expand its work in knowledge

management to ensure appropriate access to volleyball’s

information base and that the best tools are available

for stakeholders to learn, improve and grow.

To this end, the organisation introduced e-learning

platforms for referees and athletes, which included

anti-doping courses for the latter. As of 2016, coaches

also have an online platform to enhance their technical

knowledge of the sport. The FIVB is committed to

improving the transfer of knowledge to athletes (through

the Athletes’ Career Programme) and to the volleyball

family at large through workshops, roundtables and

seminars.
