TREVOR JULIAN
DIRECTOR - LAVA WEST

Long-time girls club volleyball coach Trevor Julian has an impeccable reputation locally and nationally for producing excellent and competitive teams, training and developing top athletes, and working with parents and families in an honest and caring way.

As a Head Coach, Trevor is easily the most decorated and successful girls club coach in the area, racking up a multitude of wins, bids, and medals in recent seasons spent in the Conejo Valley and over two decades in the coaching trenches. He is also the longest-running 16’s age division coach in all of Southern California, having coached that age division without break since 2002.

As Director, Trevor has orchestrated the rise of LAVA West from a quality local club to a regionally and nationally known entity; in recent seasons, West teams have won more than a dozen medals in national competition and more than a dozen qualification bids to Junior Nationals. Each season of his tenure, LAVA West has placed multiple teams in Division One of the SCVA or in the Premier Volleyball League, the new SCVA Power League.
