Aliso Island Volleyball Club

Welcome to Aliso Island Volleyball Club! We're a small but growing club in Orange County dedicated to advancing the athletic development of girls pursuing the sport of volleyball. We provide instruction, in a supportive atmosphere, focused on the skills and techniques necessary to prepare players for competition. We are a non-profit organization and work to keep our membership fee affordable while offering high-level training from experienced coaches and a sense of community for both the players and their parents. Our coaches believe in positive reinforcement and encouragement as they strive to help our athletes realize their full potential as volleyball players, believing that their success on the court can extend to their everyday life.

We have two facilities where we rent courts for practice: Momentous Sports Center in Irvine (14522 Myford Road) and Blizzard Sports Center (formerly SaddleBack Valley Sports Center) in Lake Forest (25871 Atlantic Ocean Drive). Consistent practices days and times are determined prior to the start of the season so our families know what to expect during the season and can plan their schedules accordingly.



Aliso Island will host tryouts for the 15s through 18s divisions at Blizzard Sports Center (25871 Atlantic Ocean Dr, Lake Forest) on August 12, 2017 for the 2017-2018 club season. There are two tryout sessions. Athletes are not required to attend both.

Morning session: Saturday, August 12 from 10am to 12pm.
