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.
The Premier Club of Ventura County . . . Every club says they are "the premier club" of their area. It is one thing to say it -- it is another thing entirely to back it up over multiple seasons of on-court performance across multiple age divisions. LAVA West is the undisputed premier club of Ventura County. In fact, over the past few seasons it has proven the most successful club in the history of Ventura County. See 'Highlights' below for more.
Our Athletes . . . 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. We produce athletes of the highest technical skill and quality, destined for bigger and better things in their high schools and colleges.
Our Locations . . . 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. Our headquarter location is Athletic Society, an amazing high-quality fitness facility in Thousand Oaks, along with Colina Middle School and the Thousand Oaks Teen Center.
Our Director . . . The Club Director for LAVA West is highly respected long-time girls club coach Trevor Julian.
Our Programs . . . We are also known for our expansive and popular non-travel training programs: the Youth Lite Program (for 3rd-5th graders just starting out) and the Juniors Program (for 6th-8th graders who don't play on club teams). 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!
*Lava West has earned significant praise locally, regionally, and nationally for our handling of the pandemic. We have been in the gym safer and longer than any other Ventura County club, have refunded money directly back to our families for the previous season, and kept costs down. We have consulted and advised community leaders, health care professionals, athletic governing bodies, and government officials to be the most informed and safest with our protocols, while still pushing forward to allow kids to be able to play volleyball for the benefit of their enjoyment and their mental well-being. We will continue to do so as long as the pandemic continues.
