The Argentina national volleyball team is the national volleyball representative of Argentina. The team is controlled by the Argentine Volleyball Federation (Federación del Voleibol Argentino in Spanish, and abbreviated "FEVA").

The team's best achievements are the 1982 World Championship bronze medal and the bronze medal at the 1988 Summer Olympics. Throughout the 1990s it was usually ranked among the first ten, and as of August 29, 2006, it was at the 7th position.[1]

In recent years, though without achieving any medal, the team finished 4th in the 2000 and 5th in the 2004 Olympic Games, but did not participate at the 2003 World Cup for internal problems with their association.

At continental level, overshadowed by volleyball power Brazil, Argentina won the 1964 South America Volleyball Championship gold medal, twelve silver and seven bronze.
