Mass Volley Park Volley
Park Volley aims at players, with no age or gender distinction, for whom participating is more important than winning (although scoring points will still be the main issue).

Through Mass Volley, the future stars of Volleyball are created through pure grassroots activities, where fun and passion for Volleyball are the real essence of the activities. The way of Mass Volleyball will show Volleyball as an entertaining sport with positive consequences for children and as a sport which can be played anywhere with very little equipment. Each Mass Volleyball event attracts the attention of the media and therefore it opens the door to positive promotion at the national level where National Volleyball Federations benefit immensely.


Considering that the rules are simple and that there are less technical demands on the players, Park Volley can be the perfect introduction to the game of Volleyball. Besides, as half of the world plays Volleyball "without a roof", this new discipline has enormous potential of development in all five continents.

Although Park Volley focuses on leisure activity, it can also be implemented as a highly competitive sport.

Volleyball as a Peace Tool

The FIVB and Peace & Sport’s mission is to promote sustainable peace by raising awareness amongst populations and educating young people for peace using the structuring values of sport.

Together, their objectives are to:

Reinforce the integration of FIVB in initiatives undertaken to promote peace, social cohesion and reconciling communities.

Facilitate dialogue and communication between communities, by using Volleyball and Beach Volleyball as tool to enhance such actions.

Encourage education, training and responsibility amongst vulnerable youth, through the practice of Volleyball and Beach Volleyball.

Volleyball at School remains a fundamental tool for the introduction of Volleyball to young children through simple game like drills. Children need actions that are motivated by the personality of the teacher who can help to create the culture and motivation to participate. Volleyball at School endorses cooperation and team spirit.

The Volleyball at School Symposium held in Canada, in June 2007, brought together world experts on Volleyball at School and best practice models, presentations and life videos which are available for teachers and technical people of National Volleyball Federations.

Volleyball Events Organisation Handbook for Cat. I and II National Federations

Putting on a Volleyball event can be a challenging task for National Federations that are unfamiliar with the basic process of holding a successful competition. Despite going into the project with the best intentions, it is easy to run into unexpected issues that can cause difficulties for organisers.

The Volleyball Events Organisation Handbook is designed to help Category I and II National Federations organise successful events in their specific countries. Detailing advice for every step of planning; from setting attainable event goals to creating and putting into practice a solid strategic plan, the handbook acts as a guide for event project managers on how to structure a Volleyball or Beach Volleyball competition.

Naturally the handbook is not the only source for federations, and each event should have a pragmatic vision if it wishes to succeed. But nevertheless, it can act as a starting point for anybody looking to spread the sport through events.
