our Board

Our Board is comprised of parents whose daughters played club and high school volleyball in Hawaii and went on to play Division I collegiate volleyball.  Three of our board members have also been involved with the Hawaii Volleyball Combine since its inception. One founded the combine, one played Division I college volleyball and another played Division III college volleyball. One is a club director and three are club coaches. All four members oversee the Hawaii Volleyball Combine. As a result, our members are intimately familiar with volleyball recruiting and the high costs associated with traveling to the mainland to get scouted by collegiate coaches. In addition, over the years our members have developed a vast and diverse network of college coaches which coaches often reach out to our members when having specific needs to fill on their teams.
