        Information for College Coaches


Welcome to the Louisiana Volleyball Club!  Every year LAVB graduates a number of girls who are fine athletes and students. Their experience with LAVB and their high school programs has prepared them to contribute to collegiate volleyball programs.

We look forward to providing you with timely information to streamline the recruiting process.  We continue to update our our team webpages and player profiles – please contact us if you are looking for team or player information that you cannot find online.


We will also advise you if a player is interested in your program.  Please check our team pages and click on athletes you may be interested in.  There you will find player profiles and links to their videos, if available.


For more information, please contact Club Director Jimmy Miranda at 985-778-8817 or
