A message from Megan and Matt O’Carroll

Together we bring the experience garnered from being former athletes at elite youth clubs, an alumnus of SoCal San Diego, and decorated collegiate athletes. From the countless hours spent training, practicing, and playing, we’ve learned that successful sporting programs view their players as more than athletes. Just like our affiliate, SoCal San Diego, at SoCal Santa Barbara, our members are part of a community that fosters tolerance and teamwork, and believes that athletics can serve a much greater good and strengthen civic stewardship.

We are excited to share our passion of the sport, while instilling in our members the values of self-discipline, respect, kindness, and the importance of establishing meaningful relationships. At the end of each season, we hope that they have not only grown as athletes but that they have also embraced the values of the club to grow as friends, scholars, people, and community leaders. And that throughout each season they continue to build on and refine these values, and utilize them in their academic, athletic, and professional endeavors.

In the SoCal Santa Barbara family, you will find that in addition to their volleyball knowledge and expertise, our elite coaching and support staff embodies our mission and values. From the younger age groups to the older, every member is important, as is every stage of their development, and our staff understands that. To supplement our staff support, our community partnerships are always readily available resources for you and your family, which include active college advising and academic support.

While each new season will present a new opportunity, we hope that your family continues to be a part of our family at SoCal Santa Barbara for years to come. We truly value your commitment to your daughter’s growth and are genuinely honored to be a part of her development. Thank you for being a part of the SoCal Volleyball community, we look forward to seeing you on the court!
