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!!

AAU Championships 2019!!

  • 14 National Getting Ready to Play!
  • 13 National Loving their Trophy!
  • 14 National Team bonding!
  • Sisters on & off the court!

We are committed to provide a secure, supportive family environment to grow the game of volleyball for future athletes of all ages and abilities.

Our growth-oriented programs are intended to develop character, accountability and sportsmanship in all of our athletes in an effort to create future leaders. To achieve this, we hold our staff to the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.  

Our juniors program is geared toward developing athletes to play at the most competitive level. By using our unique approach, we strive to set ourselves apart from our competitors while helping provide a pathway to success for all of our athletes.


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.

Life at Lake Murray!

  • Wanna Play Big Time Ball? We pride ourselves in how hard we work to get each player recruited to play at the next level, if that is part of their college path!

  • We believe in HARD WORK and we NEVER GIVE UP!
  • We Compete! Our coaches are all extremely competitive, knowledgeable and supportive of each of their players and believe in creating responsible young adults. We lead by example and try to instill integrity and character as much as we instill volleyball skills.
  • Outdoor Rocks! Outdoor volleyball is another GREAT way to increase your volleyball IQ and skill. ALL of our coaches are active outdoor players and we encourage our girls to play over the summer.
  • Team Bonding All of our coaches understand the need for teams to bond outside of volleyball and always come up with new and unique ways of doing it, from aerial yoga to pizza party sleep overs!
  • Parent Tournament Our annual parent tournament has become one of the most anticipated events of the season! Parents play, kids's a hoot!!!
  • Parent Tournament Side Effects!
  • Family Picnic Fun
  • Our parents are the ABSOLUTE BEST!!
  • We are always sad to see any season end, but we try to ease the pain with TONS of food, sunshine, swimming, corn hole and oh yea...volleyball at our end of season FAMILY PICNIC at Pine Island
  • Support! We love to support our athletes during their school seasons as well as their club seasons!
  • We like to WIN a lot too!!

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!
