Volleyball Empowerment Application-based support is based on the highly successful FIVB Development Projects Platform which was launched in 2017. However, FIVB have implemented some key changes and incorporated the platform into Volleyball Empowerment to ensure a smooth and easy experience for our National Federations. 

The key change we have made following your feedback, is that the application-based types of support will now be available 365 days a year. 

There are three types of support available for application: 

  1. Coach support for the development of national teams. 

  2. Volleyball equipment support. 

  3. A knowledge transfer programme - formerly coach the coaches

Each supported type will have several application windows throughout the year when all 222 National Federations of categories 1-2-3-4 and 5 can submit their applications.
Make sure your project has clear goals and will foster the growth of volleyball in your country. 

Coach support is available for three, six or twelve months depending on the current level of the national team and their overall goals. National Federations can apply for support subject to a comprehensive long-term plan shared with the FIVB. 

Volleyball Equipment Support: Through this type of support National Federation can apply for indoor and outdoor volleyball floors, volleyballs, beach volleyballs and kids volleyballs, in addition to volleyball nets and net systems. 

Knowledge transfer programme.

The FIVB is committed to providing support to upskill National Federations in the following key areas: 

  • National Team Coaches Development

  • Referee Development

  • National Federation Sports Management and Administration

FIVB will aim to do this by providing a world-class coach or expert in an agreed high-performance area to conduct a seminar for the National Federation.
