LAVA IN THE COVID ERA

Life in the time of a pandemic is challenging and uncertain, but the leadership of the Los Angeles Volleyball Academy has been at the forefront both in our local communities and at the regional and national levels. We have consulted with health professionals, advised athletic governing bodies and elected government officials, and adopted a slew of safety protocols that ensure our athletes, coaches, staff, and the community at large remain protected, while allowing young people the immeasurably important and mentally healthy act of sports participation with peers.
