With 10 affiliates and more than 150 coaches and admins working within its bounds, the LAVA network is one of the largest club volleyball organizations in the country. Size brings stability and stability brings flexibility—in our ability to seek partnerships, control costs, think outside the box, and generate new ideas, all of which in turn creates value.
LAVA is committed to setting a course and navigating a path with the highest ethical standards of behavior. We strive to do differently—and better—in every aspect of our enterprise, and work hard to ensure our players, parents, and families understand and follow our example, and subscribe to our motto of Volleyball Done Differently.
Stability and integrity are important elements of a positive club culture—most people, however, are also looking for tangible benefits, things they can actually reach out and touch or see. LAVA adds tangible value to its Montecito program: knowledgeable coaches, structured training, approachable and experienced admins, informative manuals, interactive websites, recruiting systems, etc. At Montecito, LAVA comes to Santa Barbara.
