Keenan 16’s and 18’s have arrived in Atlanta , Georgia for the A5 Summer Exposure Tournament. This carefully planned event was coordinated by Hana Hou staff members Warren Johnson and Perlas Bardouche. From an initial invitation in January to the shut-down of the SCVA Las Vegas Classic in February and April, travel for the club in a year filled with the covid19 pandemic , club volleyball travel seemed nearly impossible. This chain of unfortunate events and an unwillingness to take “no” the determined duo coordinated with the coaches, players and parents to believe that the best was yet to come and better days were ahead. 2021 High School Volleyball, shut-downs, size limitations, no spectators, no tournaments, playing with masks, we had truly the mostly challenging season we could have ever imagined.
Playing with the Nationally Ranked Club A5 and their host of competitive teams and coaches at first class facility seemed like a dream come true for our players from Hawaii. We will have a more comprehensive coverage on the events shortly.
Class of 2021 Mid-Pacific Institute / Team Keenan 18's
Congratulations to Class of 2021 Mid-Pacific Institute /Team Keenan 18’s Sarae Miguel on her commitment to play collegiate volleyball at the University of New Haven. Sarae is a three-year member of Hana Hou and currently still in season under coaches Justin and Jason. Her high-school coach was ILH legend Tommy Lake. She is a multi-sport athlete who plays basketball and volleyball.
At UNH the scholar-athlete will major in forensic sciences in a school noted by former professor Henry Lee who worked on many famous high-profile cases.
For two club seasons in an era of Covid19 and global pandemic, Sarae joins four other players that enabled themselves to transition from high school to collegiate volleyball despite the extreme adversity each player faced without travel to mainland tournaments. Using digital platforms and an unwavering commitment to succeed (with help from her parents) this represents a tremendous accomplishment for the young student athlete. Wishing her the best of luck as she departs the one season state for the four season state of Connecticut.

Tommy 18's Seniors
Congratulations to all our Seniors on Tommy's and Keenan 18's. Words cannot truly express the happiness and joy it has been having all of you choose to play volleyball at our club. Many entered the club three years ago as teens and today exit the club volleyball season as young adults ready for the transition to the next chapter in your lives. Today March 28, 2021 represents the last days for our seniors. In what has been an extremely difficult time in humanity, all of you have persevered and moved forward with success towards graduation. The journey could not have been as successful without the tremendous support from your parents and coaches. Good luck to all of you in college.

Est May 2016 . Hana Hou Volleyball Club was formed by two parents whose previous club collapsed and needed to provide a opportunity to showcase their 17u old players in what would be the last year at summer travel prior to graduation. In six weeks the club went from zero to being featured as the media story of the 2016 AAU Junior National Championships in Orlando Florida
