Hello Dawson -

Thank you for your question.

The Canadian Encyclopedia (found online at says:

Volleyball was developed in the US in the last decade of the 19th century. As the game developed from being recreational to being a highly competitive sport, skills grew more sophisticated and intricate tactics of attack and defence evolved. Volleyball is played competitively around the world by over 150 countries holding membership in the International Volleyball Federation. World Championships are held regularly for male and female athletes at the senior, junior and youth levels. Volleyball has been an Olympic sport since 1964.
