Lava Islands launched in 2018 as a merger between LAVA and the successful Camarillo-based girls and boys volleyball club VCVC (Ventura County Volleyball Club). Since inception, the club has been serving the needs of the greater Ventura County volleyball community and in 2021 took another excellent step forward, bringing on board the talented director, coaching staff, and families of Blue Crush Volleyball Club. Lava Islands is poised for significant growth between its high-quality travel teams and immensely popular non-travel programs.
Lava Islands operates out of its own exclusive, spacious two-court facility in the heart of the Camarillo outlets, located at 161 Plaza La Vista, Camarillo. The program fields eight to ten teams annually across the range of age divisions, as well as offers exciting and expanding youth and juniors non-travel training programs for 3rd-8th graders not ready yet to make the jump into club.
The Director for Lava Islands is long-time popular club coach Kim Machnic. Kim was the Founder and Director of Blue Crush Volleyball Club prior to joining Lava Ventura and has coached nearly every age division in club volleyball. Read more about Kim here. Kim is bolstered by an excellent coaching staff with deep ties to the Ventura County volleyball community. We encourage you to speak to our Director or any of our coaches about what it means to be part of Lava Islands and we look forward to seeing you in the gym with us soon.
