History of KU`IKAHI
KU`IKAHI (Hawaiian translation - "To Strike As One") was founded in 2004 for the young men of Hawai`i who were interested in improving their volleyball skills and knowledge in a competitive, disciplined and organized setting. Starting with 30 boys, the club's primary focus was to help develop and grow the sport of volleyball for boys in Hawai`i. By the 2009 - 2010 club season, KU`IKAHI became the largest boys club in the State of Hawai`i with 10 teams and 125 young men from 22 schools statewide.
KU`IKAHI has sent teams to the Junior National Volleyball Championships (formerly Junior Olympic Volleyball Championships) with great success: 2 Gold Medals (15 Club - 2007, 2008), 1 Silver Medal
(15 Club - 2006), and 4 Bronze Medals (14 Club - 2005, 15 Club - 2005, 16 Club - 2007, 13 Club - 2011). During the 2010 Junior Nationals in Austin, Texas, 4 teams competed in the Open Division - the most ever from any club in Hawai`i. In 2010, a club record was set with 14 seniors committing to play collegiate volleyball.
For the 2010 - 2011 Girls Volleyball Club season, KU'IKAHI will open it's doors to one Girls (16's) team. We are are excited about this new venture.
KU`IKAHI will continue to remain true to the "Athletes First, Winning Second" motto and cultivating the sport of volleyball in Hawai`i. We are proud of the success of our players and our commitment to represent the state of Hawai`i and our families with dignity, respect and humility while enjoying and
competing in the sport of volleyball.
