bettering the lives of the youth we serve

KAULUKOA – THE VOLLEYBALL INSTITUTE is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that’s focused on preparing youth for the next level of competition – and life.

Why choose KAULUKOA?
Simply, we’re more than just volleyball.

Teaching members how to compete at the next level is one of our primary functions, but we feel that we have a responsibility to develop the whole person, not just the athlete. We accomplish this by leveraging the enthusiasm your child has for playing sports to help foster growth in athletics, academics, and citizenry.

To-date, we feel that our track record speaks for itself. Since being founded in 2007 and competing in our first national tournaments in 2008, we’ve sent 64 teams to compete at major National Championships (AAU, JVA, USAV). 40 of those teams have competed in the Open Division (the highest level of competition). We’ve been on the podium 18 times with 12 national championships (8 of which were in the highest division for their age group), 2 silver medals, and 4 bronze medals. We’ve also had 14 top ten finishes and our members have accumulated 36 All-Tournament Team honors and 5 All-Tournament MVP selections.

The success our members are experiencing at the national level is carrying over to the local level too. Last year (the 2013 – 2014 high school season) 5 boys / 10 girls were in the HHSAA Division I Championship, 4 boys / 3 girls were named to HHSAA Division I All-Tournament Team, 5 boys / 5 girls were selected to the Star-Advertiser Fab 15, and 9 Boys / 9 Girls were selected as ILH and OIA Division I All-Stars. The boys OIA, ILH, and HHSAA Players of the Year were all KAULUKOA members as well.

We cannot not promise outcomes like these every year, but we can promise that we’re committed to delivering the best process we can. We want every child that trains with us to leave a better player, and a better person, then when they arrived…and they will.

One of our goals is to help prepare your child for college. As much as we love the game, we believe that your son or daughter should be focused on getting as much out of their studies as possible. Better grades equal better collegiate opportunities, which can often lead to better life outcomes. Academics must be a priority.

As part of our commitment to help reinforce the importance of academics, we require all members to obtain and sustain a minimum grade point average of 2.75. Last year in 2014, our 120 members averaged a 3.2 GPA and those that hovered around the minimum tended to trend upwards.

By creating a requirement, performing grade checks, and having dialog with our members about the importance of academics, we’ve helped prepare them for a wide range of colleges. Our members our going to schools like Stanford, USC, West Point, Southern Utah University, Temple, Gonzaga, Grand Canyon University, Sacred Heart University, and Dixie State to name a few.

The citizenry facet is all about keeping our members grounded. We feel strongly that they should be actively seeking and participating in efforts to make their communities better. Stream restorations, beach cleanups, programs like Meals on Wheels and Next Step shelter, and mentoring younger peers are all great ways to help our kids think beyond themselves and act in selfless ways. Something that we hope they carry with them for life.

Since 2007, we’ve provided more than 12,000 hours of service to the community. As impressive as our athletic achievements are, we may be most proud of our commitment to the community. There is no way to measure the impact of our service, but we’re confident that we’ve helped to change the lives of those that give and those that receive.

KAULUKOA… bettering the lives of the youth we serve.
