The Los Angeles Volleyball Academy (LAVA) is most known for its wide array of youth and junior girls club travel and non-travel programs. This information page will touch briefly upon the various offerings and programs offered by LAVA for female athletes between ages eight and eighteen (or grades 03-12). The primary home of the LAVA Girls program is lava-girls.com.
LAVA currently has seven distinct girls indoor youth and junior volleyball club affiliates: LAVA North VBC (Santa Clarita), LAVA South VBC (Studio City), LAVA West VBC (Thousand Oaks), LAVA Shack VBC (West Los Angeles), LAVA Pasadena (Pasadena), LAVA Islands VBC (Ventura), and the Locals VBC (aka LAVA Locals, located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley). Each location has its own distinct slate of offerings; for more info on each location, click the blue links above.
Girls programs come in three basic forms: Full Travel, Limited Travel, or Non-Travel. Programs designated ‘Full Travel’ are comprised of club volleyball travel teams for girls ages 10-18 that compete over the course of a multi-month season (Nov/Dec thru June) that includes both regional (Southern California) and highly competitive national (out-of-state) tournaments. Programs designated ‘Limited Travel’ are comprised of club volleyball travel teams for girls ages 10-18 that compete over the course of a multi-month season (Nov/Dec thru June) that only includes regional (Southern California) tournaments. Programs designated ‘Non-Travel’ are session-based skills training programs for girls ages 08-15 that do not include travel tournaments and are primarily development-based programs in a group setting, not formed teams; non-travel programs include LAVA Lite (the immensely popular youth program for 3rd-5th graders), the Lite Plus (for more experienced 5th-6th graders), and the Walk-Ons Program (for 7th-9th graders). All three non-travel programs — Lite, Lite Plus, and Walk-Ons — operate out of multiple locations.
Detailed current information on all programs — including tryouts/calendar info for travel programs, team rosters, committed athletes, graduated alumnae, pricing information, and online registration/payment options for all non-travel programs, among many other things — can be found at lava-girls.com.
