Life at Lake Murray Volleyball!

  • 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!
  • 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
  • We TRULY love each other and care about one another!
  • Our parents are the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!!
  • We believe in HARD WORK and we NEVER GIVE UP!
  • We are always sad to see any season end but we try to ese the pain with TONS of food, sunshine, swimming, corn hole and oh yea...volleyball at our end of season FAMILY PICNIC at Pine Island
  • We Compete! Our coaches are all extremely competitive, knowledgeable and suppprtive 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.
  • Support! We love to support our athletes during their school seasons as well as their club seasons!
  • Oh yeah....we like to win a lot too!!!

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 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!!
