The NCAA will hold the inaugural Division III Men’s Volleyball Championship April 27-29 in Springfield, Mass.

Before the creation of this championship, programs from all three divisions competed for just four berths into the yearly tournament. The Molten Division III Men’s Invitational Volleyball Championship was formed in 1997 to have a culminating event for NCAA Division III men’s volleyball. The event  was organized and supported by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) and USA Volleyball (USAV), in conjunction with Molten U.S.A., Inc.
