About the Founders

Hi, pleased to meet you!

Back in 2019, Steve went shopping for a pair of sports shorts for Poppy (then 9 years old). He found flimsy cotton gear and big brand basics but nothing fun, fresh and functional that he felt would offer her support and comfort and wouldn't fall down and become a distraction. 

That's when decided to give it a crack ourselves.

Our range of age conscious and stylish activewear for tweens and teens is constructed to keep up with them when they're flipping, punching, kicking, running, cycling or whatever it is they do when they work up a sweat.


Connecting with and nurturing our online community of active and athletic young women is the biggest joy our brand brings us, as every day we see girls conquer new challenges, lift each other up and celebrate one another’s successes. That, in a nutshell, is what drives us.

Thank you for supporting Lava Tribe. By shopping with us, you're supporting a young business with big goals.
