Popular homegrown coaching product Josh Augur has been a fixture on the LAVA sidelines since the club's inception and returns to LAVA South for the coming season in his role as Director.

An All-League award-winner for LA Baptist High School, Josh went on to play collegiate men's club volleyball at San Diego State. While at SDSU, he was a volunteer assistant with the school's NCAA D1 Women's Volleyball Program.
