Foothill Volleyball Club is founded in conjunction with John Van Deventer. He was the former owner and director of ICON Volleyball Club and Club Culver and has over 25 years of experience. He also won a CIF-SS Championship at St Paul High School and is currently the Varsity Head Coach at Monrovia High School. As we move forward with the merger with Arcadia Volleyball Club, he will be working closely with Flora Yang to help guide us forward. Arcadia Volleyball Club was established in 2013 and she has a wealth of knowledge in running an successful organization. Together, we continue to serve the foothill communities of the San Gabriel Valley as well as the Pomona Valley, from Pasadena to Rancho Cucamonga.
Foothill Volleyball Club aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete. Our focus is to create competitive teams at a more affordable price point for the hardworking families in the community. We serve the foothill communities of the San Gabriel Valley as well as the Pomona Valley, from Pasadena to Rancho Cucamonga. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete:
Is coached using the principles of Positive Coaching and Growth Mindset
Has fun at practices and games
Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance or playing time
Learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the volleyball court
Develops the skills, tactics and strategies for the game and improves the player's acumen
We recognize that coaches are the people who most directly can make this all possible. It is our goal to provide every coach with the tools to succeed and become a positive role model. We are committed to creating a culture, in which coaches, parents and athletes work together to achieve this mission.
“I'm not just a model who plays volleyball, or a volleyball player who supports herself modeling. I'm a female athlete personality.”

“On beach volleyball: You touch every other ball and, if you screw up, you only have one more person to back you up. You can't go hide in the corner.”
- Kerri Walsh
“Volleyball is one of the most interactive games going. It is a game of intuition, imagination, improvisation—but most of all, of reciprocity. Of teamwork. There is no way to freelance in volleyball.”
