Teams Formed for 15's-18's ... Congrats to all those who made our teams and will call LAVA South their home for the coming club season. We have put together a stellar group of athletes and coaches and cannot wait to see what they accomplish together - we'll see you in the gym!
LAVA South has an excellent history of success fielding highly competitive teams across the spectrum of girls club volleyball age divisions. South teams are consistent performers in the region often competing in the Gold Division of the SCVA Power League (SCVA stands for Southern California Volleyball Association, the regional governing body for club volleyball) for their respective age groups. LAVA South has also notched a series of national tournament successes over the years, including gold, silver, and bronze medal finishes at out-of-state events.
The program fields eight to twelve teams annually across the various age divisions, as well as extensive youth programs and non-travel juniors training programs. Our primary practice facility is Oakwood School with a secondary locations out of East Valley High School and North Hollywood High School.
LAVA South houses an exceptional coaching staff with multiple past or present high school and college coaches, long-time club coaches, and a slew of the most respected coaches in the area. The Club Director for LAVA South is successful club, high school, and college coach Sheldon Sheehy alongside Assistant Director and popular club coach Ryan Duncan.
We encourage you to speak to our Directors or any of our coaches about what it means to be part of LAVA South and we look forward to seeing you in the gym with us soon!

The Youth Lite Program at LAVA South has been popular and successful for several years. It runs primarily on weekend mornings from with cost anywhere from $95-$175 depending on the length of the session. The Lite Program is the official youth program of LAVA South, designed to give young athletes a taste of volleyball in a encouraging environment that mixes quality skills training with lots of fun games to build a passion for this wonderful sport. The program is coached by professional, paid coaches; it is not volunteer-based and, as such, the training value and player growth is significant.
*The program is primarily for 3rd-5th graders, although 2nd graders or 6th graders can participate with Director approval on a case-by-case basis depending on available space and the time of year.

The Juniors Program at LAVA South has been a strong training program for middle school athletes for several years. It runs primarily on weekend mornings with cost anywhere from $95-$175 depending on the length of the session.
The Juniors Program is the official middle school non-travel training program of LAVA South, designed to provide quality technical training with focus on individual development (skills training and having fun). The program is for girls who are not looking to play on a travel club volleyball team, but who wish to keep their skills up either out of love for the game or a desire to play in high school, or both! It limits both the cost and time commitment required to participate, but still provides excellent training at the hands of professional, paid coaches; it is not volunteer-based and, as such, the training value and player growth is significant.
*The program is primarily for 6th-8th graders, although 9th graders can participate with Director approval on a case-by-case basis depending on available space and the time of year. 6th graders are encouraged to participate in Juniors instead of the Lite during winter or spring sessions.
