“Stronger Family, More
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.
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

, 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.
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.Back to table of contents
With the help of the Development Fund, the FIVB supports
a number of projects which have been conceived and
implemented at the grassroots level in order to ensure
home-grown solutions are used to address local issues.
