About Live Aloha Volleyball

Why do we exist? 

“The mission of Live Aloha Volleyball Academy is

to create an environment for everyone to

live aloha; Always and All ways.”

How do we “create an environment for everyone to live aloha”? 

LAVA was created with a vision to provide a volleyball (and life for that matter) experience that was different than what was (at the time) currently being provided in the CEVA region and more broadly in the Pacific Nowrthwest.

As we, the staff and ‘ohana of LAVA, are continuing on this path we are constantly learning, growing and discovering new ways to create environments of aloha where young people can learn the game, but more importantly learn about themselves! 

What are we all about? 

At the end of the day volleyball should be looked back on as a positive life changing experience for all involved. Although we will be learning a lot about volleyball, we will prioritize creating an environment where our athletes learn about growth mindset, motor learning,

but most importantly themselves. 

Process > Outcome

There are many ways to teach good volleyball. We at LAVA have done and will always continue to research and be open to learning more efficient and effective ways to empower our people (Athletes, Coaches, Parents, ect.) Below are just a few of the people/ organizations/ groups that have helped shape the LAVA way!
