Established in 1982, SMBC Boys is one of the oldest and most successful boys volleyball clubs in the country.
We have earned 34 medals - and counting - at Junior Nationals over the years, including those below.
Based in Encino, SMBC South is the site of the original long-running SMBC Boys program, which moved to the San Fernando from Santa Monica in the late 1990’s. SMBC South fields three to five teams annually across several age divisions. Our athletes come from all over -- the San Fernando Valley, West Los Angeles, Pasadena, Burbank, Glendale, and all their adjacent communities.
There are five primary age divisions at SMBC South: 18's (seniors), 17's (juniors), 16's (sophomores), 15's (freshmen), and 14's (8th graders). The grades listed are most common for that age division. Most often, seventh graders also play in the 14's division. Periodically, if there are enough athletes, we will put together a 13's team (seventh graders only) or a 12's team (5th/6th graders).
At SMBC South, we also have a popular youth and juniors training pod program, which has proven particularly successful during the pandemic. We encourage you to speak to our Director Ryan Van Loo (via cell at 818-795-2276 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or any of the families in our program about what it means to be part of the tradition of SMBC South!
