CLUB TRYOUTS @ SMBC BOYS


Welcome to the Club Tryouts page for SMBC Boys Volleyball Club. Established in 1982, SMBC Boys Volleyball Club is one of the longest-running, highly decorated, and most respected boys volleyball clubs in the country. SMBC Boys 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.

SMBC Boys is the official Boys Program of the Los Angeles Volleyball Academy (LAVA), an affiliation of youth and junior girls and boys volleyball clubs in Southern California. The four SMBC Boys locations are: SMBC South (Studio City), SMBC West (Thousand Oaks), SMBC VC (Camarillo), and SMBC North (Santa Clarita).

Each location has its own specific tryout details. Please see below for more information.

ADDITIONAL SEASON INFORMATION

The boys volleyball season is broken down into a Fall and Spring season for high school athletes. There is a break in the season to account for the boys high school volleyball season (Feb-Apr). More details are below:

# - Fall Season Details ... The Fall Season for boys volleyball runs September through mid-January for high school age teams (9th-12th graders, 15's-18's age divisions).

# - Spring Season Details ... The Spring Season for boys volleyball runs early May through end of June/early July for high school age teams (9th-12th graders, 15's-18's age divisions).

# - Middle School Age Divisions ... The season for boys volleyball for middle school athletes (6th-8th graders, 12's-14's age divisons) runs from early September through end of June/early July.

# - Regional and National Travel ... Most tournaments are based locally, meaning Anaheim or Anaheim-adjacent areas. There is one national travel tournament out of state (Junior Nationals), which is held end of June to early July (specific dates vary year-to-year). Most teams formed during the Fall Season will attend Junior Nationals, though there are some teams that will not and some teams formed during Spring Tryouts that will also not attend.
