NATE SPARKS - HEAD COACH

Nate Sparks is one of the Los Angeles Volleyball Academy’s most tenured coaches and returns for another excellent season with the LAVA coaching staff as one of only a handful of dual citizen coaches, head coaching teams for both LAVA North and LAVA Islands. Nate began coaching at a young age and has for long years been an important member of the LAVA coaching staff, having also coached for LAVA South and SMBC Boys over multiple seasons across multiple age divisions.

A Santa Clarita native, Nate found success as a player at Valencia High School as an enthusiastic member of the 2003 CIF Championship Boys Volleyball squad. His transition to coaching was seamless as he brought his excellent brand of enthusiasm to his work, and swiftly Nate found a significant demand for his coaching services. In 2007, Nate was hired as Head Coach of the West Ranch High School Girls Varsity Volleyball Program, a position he held for five years. He experienced immediate success, taking a Girls’ Varsity squad burdened by a 2-12 record in 2006 to a 30-16 record over 2007 and 2008, including consecutive playoff appearances. Nate is currently the Head Varsity Coach for the Boys Volleyball Team, in addition to keeping himself busy with responsibilities with LAVA.
