California Volleyball Clubs

Share Your Experience With Your Favorite California Volleyball Clubs

Many prominent California volleyball clubs like Laguna Beach VBC, Impact

VBC and Vision are examples of programs that focus on teaching both

individual and team skills while also providing competitive playing

opportunities for their members.


These programs are promoted among parents of middle school and high

school aged players who pay to receive volleyball training on a travel or

nontravel team each year during a club season that starts in November

after most high school girls volleyball seasons end and continues into

the summer until July.

  

These West Coast junior volleyball clubs and several others in the state

are responsible in part for the tremendous growth in talent among some

of the top young prep volleyball players in southern California.


If you've played for any California volleyball clubs then you are invited

volleyball club offering training and playing opportunities to new players

just learning how to play volleyball and aspiring college bound players

hoping to receive scholarships.


This innovative junior developmental program is for prep players ages 10

-18 who pay for high quality training while learning the importance of

various social aspects of the game including sportsmanship, ethics

during competition, and building long lasting friendships.

Southern California Volleyball Association, which hosts and sponsors

Laguna VBC has gained a national reputation for its ability to coach

championship winning junior girls volleyball teams in the Open division

and Club divisions of these SCVA tournaments.

2010 Hava "Davis" 12s girls volleyball team was produced by Point of

View and follows the team along their championship winning journey.

website.

California Volleyball Clubs: Impact VBC

Impact VBC is one of the oldest California volleyball clubs in the state having just celebrated its 24th birthday.

In that time, one of the remarkable things this club has managed to do is to eliminate one of the most common headaches many club teams face each season, and that is finding and paying for adequate volleyball practice facilities.

Many clubs in California and elsewhere find themselves scrambling to find open gymnasiums, high school gyms, YMCAs or local park and recreation facilities where they can regularly hold their practices at decent hours.

They are forced to hold practices only during the hours dictated by the gym facility owners. This usually limits the availability of extra practice sessions because of the need for clubs to pay extra gym rental fees.

Impact doesn't seem to have this problem because they own their gym facility. The Heritage Oak Gymnasium is located at 17000 Brooklyn Avenue in Yorba Linda, California, and has three volleyball courts, an astro turf running and plyo track and rock climbing wall (and other amenities). This is the beautiful location where Impact volleyball players pay to train, compete and represent their club.

Humble Beginnings

This girls volleyball club began in 1989, with only three teams, but over time and with a dedication to teaching young women in the surrounding areas of the Yorba Linda community an appreciation for the game of volleyball, it has made an "Impact" each year as one of the top California volleyball clubs in the area.

A number of Impact VBC trained high school volleyball players reached the California Interscholastic Federation State playoffs specifically Katie Mcmahon, Katie Kirby, Amanda Brown, Hannah Nabbout.

Amanda Brown, Katie Kirby, Hannah Nabbout, Katie McMahon were four Impact VBC girls volleyball players that competed in the CIF finals.

Five Impact volleyball alumni--Ni Waterfield, Nicole Favreau, Lauren Gross, Amanda Pacheco, and Brittany Crenshaw have competed in the NCAA volleyball tournament playoffs.

College Volleyball Scholarship Recipients

Some of the college volleyball teams where Impact club players have signed letters of intent include: Duke, Notre Dame, Biola, UCSB, Gonzaga, Stanford, Yale, Cal State Fullerton, Brown University, Dartmouth, Oral Roberts, Boise State Norther Arizona, North Carolina, Southern Mississippi, University of Tulsa and Penn just to name a few.

Girls Volleyball Camps

Girls volleyball camps and clinics teach team drills and reinforce the mechanics of the game are held at regular intervals during the year.

Carefully chosen volleyball team drills help players fine tune their understanding of tactics and emphasize the team aspect of the game including how to win together and how to lose together, a lesson often neglected by other volleyball clubs.

Improving on their 2008 record, in 2009 Vision had 12 of their 14 volleyball teams qualify for the Junior Olympic Volleyball Championships.

In 2010, at the NCVA Regionals, Vision was represented in the championship match at every age level and finished as 2010 NCVA Regional Champions in 5 of the 6 divisions in which they participated.
