The 1989 NCAA Men's Volleyball Tournament was the 20th annual tournament to determine the national champion of NCAA men's collegiate volleyball. The tournament was played at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, California during May 1989.


UCLA defeated Stanford in the final match, 3–1 (15–1, 15–13, 4–15, 15–12), to win their 13th national title. The Bruins (29–5) were coached by Al Scates.

UCLA's Matt Sonnichsen was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. Sonnichsen, along with five other players, also comprised the All-tournament team.


Until the creation of the NCAA Men's Division III Volleyball Championship in 2012, there was only a single national championship for men's volleyball. As such, all NCAA men's volleyball programs, whether from Division I, Division II, or Division III, were eligible. A total of 4 teams were invited to contest this championship.
