Our club’s inaugural year was in 1995 and its name was Na Wahine Mauloa. It was a
grassroots club comprising of young ladies aspiring to play competitive volleyball. We
practiced predominately at open parks, community centers, and small gyms.

In 2003, we received our federal issuance as a 501-c-3 designation, recognizing us as a
non-profit organization – Na Keiki Mauloa. Our name change and mission allows us to
serve young boys and girls within our programs.

The founding leaders of Na Keiki Mauloa were Kawika Chun, Carol Chun and Barney
Choy. They had a vision to share with all who wanted to learn. We took all who wanted
to learn the game of volleyball regardless of their experience level. We recognize
everyone goes through a learning process at various rates and we are here to serve
and nurture this process.

In the beginning, our club was made up of a single team. We field teams in the
different age groups based upon the interest at tryouts. We have fielded competitive
girls teams in all age groups (11- 18), up to 8 teams a season. Our season begins with
an open tryout in October and practices beginning in December. Two tournaments on
average are played Jan – May, including a mainland qualifier, culminating in a season
ending mainland tournament in June (AAU Nationals – Florida, USA Nationals – various
cities, or other appropriate volleyball tournaments)

Summer volleyball clinics are offered in July, August, and September directed for the
beginner up to the advanced players. The clinics have a low player to coach ratio
resulting in a lot of feedback and maximum growth. Clinics are filled with high-quality
repetitions and information exchanges.
