SMBC West is a program on the cusp of greatness. Based in Thousand Oaks, SMBC West taps into the talent-rich regions of the Conejo Valley, Ventura County, Malibu, Simi Valley, Calabasas, and the western San Fernando Valley.
In Spring of 2017, the excellent people behind three of the most successful and recognizable names in junior boys club volleyball – SMBC Boys, Bones Volleyball Club, and Palisades Volleyball Club – joined forces to bring to the Conejo Valley and its surrounding areas a boys club volleyball that has at its core three central goals: (1) train well and development fully the young male athletic talent of the area in the sport of volleyball; (2) teach the boys of this community how to be excellent young men through the vehicle of athletics; and (3) compete on-court to win matches at the highest of competitive levels.
Welcome to SMBC West, the fruit of this collaboration.
SMBC West swiftly assembled an outstanding leadership team, including Matthew Diaz, the long-time owner/director of Palisades Volleyball Club (now our SMBC West Club Director), Doug Magorien, the long-time owner/director of Bones Volleyball Club (and now the head of our SMBC West youth program), Chris Reyes, the Club Director for SMBC Boys South, and Trevor Julian, Co-Founder of LAVA and our sister club LAVA West’s current Club Director. Our leadership then compiled a coaching staff that ranks against the best of the best, including multiple collegiate coaches, club coaches, and high school coaches — a staff that features some of the finest coaches working today, not to mention a few of the most successful, recognizable, and popular coaches in boys volleyball.
We encourage you to speak to our Director or any of our coaches about what it means to be part of SMBC West and we look forward to seeing you in the gym with us soon!
