About Surfside Volleyball Club


Surfside Volleyball Club believes in providing high level technical training in an environment where girls have fun and foster a true love of the sport. We take pride in a coaching staff that relates well to female players and understands how to prepare them for the next level of play.


Coming from a generation where girls did not have many opportunities in sports, Carolyn Lawson founded Surfside Volleyball Club in 2000 to provide female athletes a chance to learn and excel in a sport they love. After being a successful and well respected club at the middle school level for over ten years, Surfside expanded to high school age groups in 2013, and currently has 20+ teams in the greater South Bay area. Surfside has continuously had teams in Division 1 of every age group we compete in, and in 2017, we were one of only 3 clubs in all of Southern California to have teams qualify for Junior Nationals in EVERY age division they play.
