The respective histories of such popular North American sports as basketball, football, and baseball are by now quite well-enshrined in mythology, but there is comparatively little known about volleyball history. This article is going to take a look at the developments and origins of the popular sport - volleyball. The beginning of volleyball history started in 1895 by William Morgan, who was a director of physical education at a Young Men's Christian Association in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Mr. Morgan invented a game, but it was not known as volleyball then. The game that Morgan invented was the called Mintonette, and was arranged to be played indoors-- by any amount of people. In this way, it was largely similar to another indoor sport that was starting to catch on in that location, namely basketball. That sport had started out very close by, just four years earlier. There were certain ideas about what this new game had the potential to be. It was thought that that this game of volleyball, was one that would be less rough in terms of contact and danger than basketball was, in order to accommodate the needs of some of the older - and indeed younger - members of the Young Men's Christian Association. The game would also require some amount of athletic ability, and provide a certain amount of exercise while remaining relatively gentle. One realizes when considering the game of volleyball that it is virtually impossible to make contact with members of the other team, whether they have negative intentions or not, as one is on the other side of the net - it would take quite a bit of intent and a breaking of rules to be injured directly by a member of the other team. The name of the game was changed to its more familiar name when Alfred Halstead, a viewer of the first ever match put on for exhibition in 1896, noticed the way the ball seemed to "volley" back and forth.
Volleyball was helped to its current prominence by its place in the modern-day Olympics. Beginning at the 1924 Paris games, volleyball was included as a demonstration sport, and some forty years later gained official inclusion. Many Eastern countries such as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, Japan, and Poland gained prominence in these early contests. The United States of America later gained a footing as they have in many of the most prominent sports throughout the world of sport today. Players like Steve Timmons and Karch Kiraly led the Olympic team of that powerful nation to a gold medal in 1988. Some prominent players like Kiraly and other very talented and experienced volleyball players have also participated in beach volleyball at other Olympic games. As such, the sport has spread even wider, and the sport has developed throughout the rich story of volleyball history to become one of the most popular and perhaps exciting sports in the world.
HISTORY OF THE FEDERATION ON INTEMATIONAL VOLLEYBALL (FIVB) A decisive moment in the history of volleyball’s first 100 years was certainly that of the founding of the FIVB (Federation Internationale de Volleyball) when in April 1947 representatives of 14 countries...
