La Jolla Volleyball is a youth volleyball club offering a complete indoor club season, summer camps, seasonal clinics, and high-quality dedicated coaching!

La Jolla Volleyball was founded in May 2011. In our first summer, we offered numerous successful beginner clinics and full-fledged beach camps (serving over 100 players that summer).  In our first indoor season (Spring 2012), we had EIGHT teams in 12U (6th grade and younger). We then offered middle school teams in Fall 2012 and had 5 teams competing in tournaments and school matches against local middle schools. In Spring 2013 season we grew to 11 teams ranging 10U-14U, from local teams to our first SCVA travel team.  In Spring 2016 we had 20 teams, including a boys team, 9 local teams 10U-14U and 10 SCVA travel teams 12U-17U.  All of our coaches are experienced, positive, motivating and dedicated to our club and players. All of our coaches work closely together to teach the same techniques and philosophies to all our teams, along with good sportsmanship and respect at all times.

At La Jolla Volleyball, we focus on proper technique, solid fundamentals, and motivating players to be their best at each and every practice.


LJV Club Director and Founder:

Barb Birnbaum was the Director of Wind n’ Sea Volleyball Club for two years before the 12U age division (5 teams) was canceled in Fall 2011. In response, she quickly organized local gym time, coaches and logistics to continue to provide quality volleyball to youth volleyball players in the La Jolla community.  Without missing a season, girls volleyball continued in the La Jolla community with La Jolla Volleyball for the Spring 2012 indoor season.

Low Costs:
We are able to offer a high-quality indoor club program at lower costs than many other local clubs because we rent local gym time. We do not have the added overhead costs of owning our own facility. Our practices are held at local gyms, including La Jolla High School and The Salvation Army.   We are fortunate to be able to use these nearby and wonderful facilities for our practices!

We are excited to continue to offer volleyball in our community!
As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions,
