History of the IVL

The IVL was originally organized as a booster group to increase fan support for the San Jose Diablos, a professional coed team that played in the late 1970's as part of the International Volleyball Association. When the IVA shut down operations, there were a multitude of inquiries regarding the status of the Industrial Volleyball League.

We took our cue and branched out on our own. From 7 teams that first season, we grew to 16, then 40, then 50. After eighteen months we hit the century mark and thought that was pretty exciting. Who knew then that the IVL would continue to grow into the largest volleyball league in the western United States, averaging 250 teams each season, with well over 2,000 participants playing weekly?
