The Montecito Volleyball Club is an affiliate of the Los Angeles Volleyball Association, which is a network of clubs in Southern California.

Besides training players, the club also aims to raise the level of coaching.

“We put as much effort into training our coaches as we do into training our players,” said director Abbey Lane. “It’s a different mindset than most other clubs; we have our coaching manual, our coaching clinics, and the collaborative nature of our network which allows ideas, feedback, suggestions, thoughts to flow freely from coach-to-coach.

“We also have directors whose primary job is oversight of coaches, helping them improve, coach better. This in turn makes our coaches better, which directly impacts our players as they get the benefit of better coaching.”
