What is the Foothill Invitational?

The Foothill Invitational is a girls high school summer indoor volleyball tournament, hosted annually in Southern California (Santa Clarita, in close proximity to the Six Flags Magic Mountain Amusement Park) by the Los Angeles Volleyball Academy (LAVA).

In 2017, the tournament will again feature the two-day format (round-robin plus challenge matches) that was popular in 2016, as well as once again offer three divisions: two Varsity Divisions (Open and Club) and one Junior Varsity Division (for junior varsity, frosh/soph, or freshmen teams). The tournament does not count towards the official season record of teams competing, and as such has become a popular tournament for varsity programs to get quality competition early on while maintaining the ability to tinker with lineups, give players opportunities, etc. The Junior Varsity Division also affords coaches the opportunity to look at their player pipeline in action, and to develop JV teams and players with lots of matches early on in the season.

The dates for the Foothill Invitational 2017 are July 21-22, 2017 (Friday-Saturday).

Why Should You Sign Your Team Up?

Our first five years were strong successes, with teams traveling from all over California and as far away as Arizona to compete. As stated, the popular tournament format for 2016 returns. Also, each player will again receive a tournament t-shirt, a trophy for winning teams, and medals for winning players and all-tournament selections. Our 2015 and 2016 events featured multiple CIF playoff participants, multiple CIF Champions, three CIF finalists, three State tournament participants, and multiple League Champions. Bring your entire program and get your season started right!
