Our Mission:

Lake Murray Volleyball Club was founded in 2006 by four coaches that wanted to provide club volleyball for the players in the Irmo, Dutch Fork and Chapin area. We have expanded to include players from all over the Columbia area. Our focus is on teaching every volleyball player to play to the best of their ability. Coaches focus on technique, execution and mental focus with a strong emphasis on teamwork. Our coaches not only teach the player how to improve and perfect their volleyball game but also take the time to teach leadership skills, build character and help them grow into independent, confident and successful young adults.

The main thing that sets us apart from other clubs in our area is our sense of family. We offer many fun events throughout our season including a parent 6 v 6 volleyball competition, individual team bonding events, end of season family picnic and the seasonal favorite - our fun day. We strive to get to know each player on a personal level. We also help each girl in their recruiting process as our goal is to get each girl a college scholarship!

We hope that you will consider being a part of the Lake Murray volleyball club family!!

MVPs from most recent tournament

Team 18 Red
Ashley Cooke

  • Ashleigh is one of our vocal leaders of the teams and one of the offensive stars! She was an absolute beast on the front row all day! Often intimidating opponents with her play just by the sight of her warm-up. The team showed it‘s dominance with an undefeated pool play mark and losing only one set on the way to the gold championship! Ashleigh was a very important part of this by not only her vocal leadership but leading by example as well! She was always upbeat and keeping the teams morale up!
  • Ashleigh led the team in blocks with 17 and kills with 33. She also chipped in with 6 aces and really played great on the back row the few times she was back there.
  • The way the team played this weekend, led by Ashleigh, they proved they have a lot of potential to do great things this year if they continue to work hard!

Team 17 Red
Chandler Williams & Flinn Christian

  • Chandler was an absolute monster again for us this past weekend in Myrtle Beach at the Winter Blast!!! She lead through her 22 kills, 20 aces and 10 digs. It was a long and hard fought day having a 7 team pool and being mixed with the 18s as well. We are so proud of the hard work and leadership that she showed her team in our 3rd place Gold finish! Great job Chandler!
  • Flinn was a rock for her teammates in Myrtle Beach! She is always positive and encouraging and leads through her hard work and drive to win. Flinn ended the day with 16 kills, 10 aces and 9 digs. She is an invaluable player to this team and we are so glad that she joined the Lake Murray family this season. Great job Flinn!!


Team 16 Red

Team 16 Black
Emily Goodman

  • Emily Goodman is our MVP for this tournament. Emily was able to frustrate teams with her serving. She was able to hit most every server that I called for her. Her outstanding serving as well as her good defense and great passing allowed our team to end the first day #1 on our net and into the Gold Playoffs.
    Great job Emily!!


Team 15 Red
Courtney Wilson

  • Congratulations to Courtney Wilson for being 15 Red‘s MVP for the Winter Blast. With our team missing 4 players this weekend, Courtney was thrown into a new role and was a key part to helping our team win the Silver division. She was fantastic in her role as an outside hitter. Her attacks were consistent all day long and she came up with several big kills. Her serving was also the best we‘ve seen from her all year! Congratulations Courtney! Well done!

Team 15 Black

  • Alyssa plays all around for us, and truly dominated in her defensive play. Her determination to let nothing touch the floor kept us in the game and kept the team alive mentally when they would slip into a funk. She was a leader on the court all weekend, keeping her teammates focused and encouraged. Alyssa works hard during every second of the game and stays mentally tough, while also continuing to push herself to improve at every practice.


Team 14 Black
Ainsley Martin & Haiden Helms

  • Ainsley stood out most this weekend by taking on the role as our second setter, a somewhat new position for her. Without hesitation she entered that position with confidence and helped lead our team to the championship game. She was one of our most consistent servers and her defense was outstanding. Ainsley is a true leader on and off the court and continues to improve at ever single practice.
  • This is Haiden‘s first year playing club and she‘s been pushing herself to improve in every way. Having played mostly defense in the past, she wasn‘t used to the outside position. From day one I put her outside and without any complaints she stepped up and she has dominated the position. This weekend she led our team in defense and aces. I‘m so proud of her success and for her willingness to learn this new position she was truly meant to play.

Team 12 Red
Ashley Brown & Anna Grace Martin

  • This is Ashley‘s second season with Lake Murray. Ashley is one of the team captains and she showed true leadership this past weekend, both on and off the court. She had 16 serve attempts, two of which were aces, with an 88% success rate. She held her own at the net where she recorded 4 kills and against the 14 power team she had one tip that she put over two blockers into the weak side position where there was on open spot. This was during a critical point in the game and gave the team the motivation/excitement they needed to bring home the win. Ashley continues to improve every time she steps on the court and we see big things in her future. Great job Ashley!
  • This is Anna Grace‘s first year playing with Lake Murray and is our libero, as well as co-captain for the team. Ann Grace really stepped into the libero role this past weekend where she recorded 39 passing attempts, with 26 of those being perfect passes to target. Her tournament passing percentage is 2.49! She also had 2 digs in the game against the 14 power team, where she showed great presence and leadership on the back row as she communicated with her teammates throughout the match/day. Anna Grace is really coming into her own and we are so blessed to be coaching her this season! Great job Anna Grace!
