On March 13, 2018 , the Hana Hou Volleyball Club was blessed to be able to host the Molten Arizona Volleyball Club in Hawaii. The Molten Arizona Volleyball Club has deep roots in Hawaii. The club is run by the Hiapo Family and has been in existence for 29 years. Every year at Molten, the club travels to Hawaii to give their players the opportunity to train in Hawaii and learn Hawaiian Style Volleyball.
Our five teams and the Molten teams 15U, 17U and 18U had a exciting scrimmage at the Salt Lake District Park. After playing ,the Hana Hou team moms did a wonderful job of putting together a buffet of foods for all the players and parents. The Arizona team got to enjoy the likes of Butter Mochi, Hawaiian Beef Stew, Chicken Katsu, Sushi, Nan Ding Rolls, Manapua, Zippy's Chili, Tonkatsu, Teriyaki Chicken, Lumpia, Fried Noodles, Rice , Etc. The girls from both teams bonded together well and we felt so fortunate to have this opportunity . As they spent their last night in Hawaii, we sent them off with food for the evening and memories both teams will never forget.
Mahalo Molten Arizona!!

On February 18th on the lily pad of court # 25 the team of 17's-Lynden defeated winner of the SCVA 17's Open Division Champions Mad Frog 17's N Blue. In what would have been a undefeated tournament for the frogs , a big black defeated spot was added to the previous flawless green back of the frogs. In a battle of wisdom vs youth , lead coach for Hana Hou and head coach of his 17's Lynden Keala showed our friends from Plato Texas that your two for one package of coaches David Huynh and Paul Lac did a great job with their team but youth still needed to gain experience to compete against a seasoned coach like Keala. All nine girls on the Hana Hou team applied that practices to principal and did well. Hawaii club volleyball has been a long history of friendly competition between Mad Frog and Hawaii teams spanning from Las Vegas to Spokane. Under the direction of Pacifico Conanan in years 2014 and 2015 Mad Frog defeated Hawaii in Spokane in Open Division twice but Hawaii always enjoyed the friendships we shared with the players and parents of Mad Frog. Hana Hou means "one more time" , this was our time. Congratulations to Lynden 17's !!
