Voted #1 large club in the Midlands by members of the Palmetto Region
It was a great weekend for our 13 national team as they brought home the gold from the AAU region championships in Myrtle Beach this past weekend. The team went undefeated (only losing 1 set) and seemed to get better with every match! We are so proud of their hard work and all of the success that they have earned this season! Great job girls!!
Our season is winding down but we are excited about our spring and summer opportunities! Please click on our "CAMPS/CLINICS/LLEAGUES" tab to get information on our Outdoor Academy, Advanced Skills Camp and Coach Sue's Camps. Looking forward to seeing everyone in the off season!!
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 expanded to include players from all over the Columbia area. 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 teach the 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.
The main thing that sets us apart from other clubs in our area is our sense of family. We offer many fun events throughout our season including a parent 6 v 6 volleyball competition, individual team bonding events, end of season family picnic and the seasonal favorite - our fun day. 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!!
This girl right here stole our hearts when she joined us two years ago!! Now she is signed to play BEACH VOLLEYBALL at ERSKINE COLLEGE! We are all so proud of her and happy that she is going to have the chance to play the game she loves so much. So much hard work, private lessons, dedication went into this moment! Caitlin embodies all that we stand for at LMVC including character, integrity, INCREDIBLE work ethic and a desire to learn and perform at her best!
Young girls, pay attention to how it is done! We love you Caitlin!! Can't wait to come watch you play!!

PARENT TOURNAMENT 2019 was a HUGE success!! We had 9 out of our 10 teams participating and TONS of parents showing off on the court! As always it ends up being one of our favorite days of the year and we have SO much fun watching the parents try to play while the girls coach them! Pretty funny watching how it is when roles are reversed. Thank you to all that participated! We love you all!
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!

This past weekend was a great one for our Regional teams at the Shamrock Showdown! Both our 13 Regional Chargers and 14 Regional Tornados won 1st place in Silver and added to our total medal count for the season. We are so proud of these girls and coaches and we see the improvement with every tournament! Can't wait to watch all of them this weekend at Regionals!! Great job everyone!!
Madison signs at Spartanburg Methodist University!!
Congratulations to Madison Nicholson on signing to play at the next level with Spartanburg Methodist College. Madison is truly one of our most treasured players at LMVC. She embodies EVERYTHING that a coach could ask for. Her work ethic is beyond measure and I have never seen anyone that wanted extra work more than Madison! We are all so happy for her and cannot wait to see her play next season. You are truly loved Madison and we will miss you, but we are all so very proud of you!!

We are so excited about the incredible coaches that we have with us this season, both those that have been with us for years and our fresh, highly qualified new coaches! We are also excited to welcome our first LMVC alumni assistant coaches. It's great to have our players come back home when they are finished with college!
