About SMBC West
SMBC West Volleyball Club for Boys 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. The club has its core three central goals: (1) train well and develop 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.
SMBC West fields four to six travel teams annually across multiple age divisions and practices out of a handful of facilities, all located in Thousand Oaks a stone's throw from where the 101 fwy meets the 23. We have assembled a truly exceptional coaching staff, all under the guidance of SMBC West Director Matthew Diaz, a highly respected long-time boys club coach coach and director.
We also have a boys youth and juniors training program for 4td-8th graders who want to train, but are not yet ready to step into the commitment of club volleyball in full. We encourage you to speak to our Director or any of the families in our program about what it means to be part of SMBC West!
