About Lava Ventura ("VC")
LAVA Ventura Volleyball Club (or "VC" for short) has been successfully serving the Ventura County girls volleyball community for many years, operating 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 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, LAVA Ventura has been offering exceptional travel team and non-travel programs to help serve the needs of the Camarillo and greater Ventura County volleyball community. In 2021, the club took a tremendous leap forward with a new leadership team, excellent coaches both new and returning, and the joining together of another successful girls volleyball club in Ventura, Blue Crush.
LAVA Ventura 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.
The Director for LAVA Ventura is long-time Ventura County volleyball coaching fixture Kim Machnic. Kim has coached multiple levels of youth and juniors club and high school volleyball, and was prior to joining LAVA the Founding Director of Blue Crush. The Master Coach for LAVA Ventura is immensely successful club and collegiate coach Brad Lyans, who has been coaching girls and boys club, high school, and collegiate programs for decades, both indoor and beach. Brad is also the current Head Coach of the Ventura College Women's Indoor and Beach Volleyball Teams. Kim and Brad are bolstered by an excellent coaching staff with deep ties to the Ventura County volleyball community.
We encourage you to speak to Kim or Brad or any of our coaches about what it means to be part of LAVA Ventura and we look forward to seeing you in the gym with us soon.
