Our results speak for themselves -- LAVA West is the most successful girls volleyball club in the history of Ventura County.
About Lava West
Based in Thousand Oaks, LAVA West Volleyball Club for Girls has grown to become the dominant and premier club of the Conejo Valley — and Ventura County — since its inception in 2011, with a vast array of successes both regionally and nationally.
It is one thing to say you are a premier volleyball club — every club says that. It is another thing entirely to back the claim up with a history of on-court performance and a winning club culture. LAVA West walks the walk to back up its talk, and has been successful on a regional and national scale never before seen in the Conejo Valley (see 'Highlights' below for more).
LAVA West fields more than a dozen travel teams annually across multiple age divisions. Our athletes come from all over: the Conejo Valley, the San Fernando Valley, Santa Barbara to Simi Valley, Moorpark to Malibu, Calabasas to Santa Clarita, Woodland Hills to West Los Angeles, and all areas of greater Ventura County, even Ojai. LAVA West practices out of a handful of facilities, all located in Thousand Oaks a stone's throw from where the 101 fwy meets the 23. The Club Director for LAVA West is highly respected long-time girls club coach Trevor Julian.
We are also known for our expansive and popular youth training programs (for 3rd-5th graders) and our juniors non-travel team programs (for 6th-8th graders who don't play on club teams). as well as extensive youth programs and non-travel juniors training programs. We encourage you to speak to our Director or any of the families in our program about what it means to be part of LAVA West!
