Stability – The LAVA Network

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.

Integrity – Volleyball Done Differently

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.

Tangibility – The Value of LAVA

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 Lite program: knowledgeable coaches, structured training, approachable and experienced admins, informative manuals, and interactive websites, all built upon a low-cost, low time-impact model.
