MEET OUR NEW SUPPORT STAFF

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACH - AMY RHYNE

We are so excited to welcome our new Strength & Conditioning coach, Amy Rhyne.  Here is a little about her experience.

I have been involved with physical fitness and training since I learned how powerful of a tool both are for the mind and body. At the time, I was 14 and living in Charleston, SC when I learned how important this component of life was to me. Since then, I have been educated in the amazing capacity of the human body, and I love to share that enthusiasm of well-rounded strength.  Personally, I have trained in short and long distance running, weight training, functional fitness, recovery, and mobility modalities. Pushing our bodies in a mindful way is a crucial tool for success on and off the court, and it is a privilege for me to share and assist  in the development of power,strength, nutrition, and athleticism with the LMVC athletes this season.

parent liaison - myya johnson

We are thrilled to have Ms. Myya Johnson returning this season as our Parent Liaison.  Myya has been around volleyball for YEARS (her daughter Journee just graduated college and she started playing in 7th grade!).  Myya is the best type of person for this position as she is extremely objective and honest.  She is also a great mediator.   Parents can go to Myya to try to help them with any situation that arises and Myya will decide whether or not it needs to be brought to the board.   She will also be a great resource for any parents that have questions about our club and how things work.  Thank you for all that you do Myya!!

Team Moms/Hotels - Erin Sutton

We are so excited to announce that Coach Erin will be taking over the position of team mom/hotel coordinator, under the guidance of Coach Katie.  In an effort to try to delegate responsibilities, Coach Erin has been kind enough to take this on for us.  Her organizational skills and OCD should prove to be perfect qualities for this position.  Thank you Erin.

AAU CHAMPIONSHIPS - WHAT A RUN!!

Both our LMVC 13 National and LMVC 14 National teams attended the AAU National Championships in Orlando Florida last week. And wow...did the girls ever leave a mark! Both teams went undefeated the first 3 days with the 14s only losing one match until playoffs!  The 14s ended up 11th out of 116 teams!! Our 13s ended 3rd out of 96!! The competition was fierce and the girls rose to the occasion in every match!! They worked together on the court and played at their highest level of the season! We are all sad that the season is over but so glad that it ended on such a HIGH note! Great job coaches and girls! We are all so very proud of you!!

OUR MISSION:

Lake Murray Volleyball Club was founded in 2006 by four coaches that wanted to provide club volleyball for the players in the Irmo, Dutch Fork and Chapin area. We have grown so much and now have players from all over the state! 

Our focus is on teaching every volleyball player to play to the best of their ability. Coaches focus on technique, execution and mental focus with a strong emphasis on teamwork. Our coaches not only show each player how to improve and perfect their volleyball game but also take the time to teach leadership skills, build character and help them grow into independent, confident and successful young adults.

Our unique approach to the club experience and our sense of family are what set us apart from other clubs in this area. We offer many fun events throughout our season including individual team bonding events, end of season family picnic and the seasonal favorite - 6 vs 6 parent tournament!    

We strive to get to know each player on a personal level. We also help each girl in their recruiting process as our goal is to get each girl a college scholarship!

We hope that you will consider being a part of the Lake Murray volleyball club family!!

Come find out what we are all about.

Proud of our LMVC 2019 Season!!

Get to Know Our Girls

Skylar Talton

This week's player of the week is Skylar Talton! Skylar plays for our 17 National Black team as their setter and right side hitter. A quick story to show her heart and commitment to her team, Skylar was sick and could not play this past weekend on Saturday but came back Sunday and played through it. She ended up with 6 kills, 9 aces 22 assists on their way to a hard fought Bronze semi final loss. Skylar is a leader on and off the court and her teammates adore her. Skylar's dad, Robbie actually plays volleyball and does a great job for the team at the Parent Tournament each year! She has one brother who plays baseball in college and she attends to Airport High School. Her mother is also a teacher at Airport High. We are so proud to have girls like Skylar in our club! Love you Skylar!
