The International Volleyball Hall of Fame, with its headquarters in Holyoke, Ma., is a 501(c)3 non-profit. The mission of the IVHF is to honor those who have made outstanding contributions to the international sport of volleyball and to foster the appreciation of the historical development of the game by collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting its collections for a global audience. The IVHF recognizes indoor, beach and sitting volleyball athletes, coaches and leaders in its museum and at an annual induction ceremony. The IVHF operates several volleyball tournaments, events, and instructional clinics each year and provides the opportunity to bring people from different cultures and different parts of the world together to celebrate the sport.
