About SMBC SOUTH
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 talent from West Los Angeles, Pasadena, Burbank, Glendale, and the San Fernando Valley.
SMBC South fields three to five travel teams annually across multiple age divisions and practices out of a handful of facilities; primary sites Crespi High School and Steven Wise School, and North Hollywood High School. The Director of SMBC South is popular SMBC South alumnus Ryan Van Loo, who oversees an excellent cadre of coaches.
The history of SMBC South is the history of SMBC Boys, one of the oldest and most successful boys volleyball clubs in the country. The club has won more than 50 medals in national competition — more than half of which have come at Junior Nationals — and has alumni scattered throughout the collegiate men’s volleyball ranks.
We encourage you to speak to our Director or any of our coaches about what it means to be part of SMBC South and we look forward to seeing you in the gym with us soon!
