• No practice on July 25.
• Both the 14U Red and Gold Teams capped off their 2015 season by travelling to Orlando, Florida to compete in the 42nd AAU Girls Junior National Volleyball Championships. Both of our Teams competed very well against opponents who were much taller: the Red Team went three sets in six out of their eleven matches, but won just two of those six; the Gold went three sets in five of their twelve matches but won two of those five, with both wins coming on the final day when they went undefeated to claim the Championship of the Gray Division. Congratulations to the Gold Team!
After the completion of tournament play, both Teams enjoyed spending entire days at Universal Studios and the Disney World parks. The heat and humidity of Orlando in the summer didn't slow our girls down one bit although the lightning did chase them indoors. All in all, a wonderful experience for everyone and we look forward to adding to the memories next season!
• Fundraising for next season kicks off soon with a beach clean-up our first project. Let's all turn out to support that and we'll party afterward, at the beach mansion, like last season!
• Lokahi's Summer Clinic is in full swing! For more information, go here.
• Check this site's Calendar regularly for when and where there will be practice.
Since its founding in 1970, Lokahi Volleyball Club has essentially been an adult club. While Lokahi has and still does welcome, without tryouts, all who wish to learn and are willing to work for it, our status as an adult club has in the past meant that those few juniors who did join became members of our adult teams and played in adult tournaments. Beginning in the 2011-2012 season, Lokahi saw an influx of players who were then 11 years old or younger, so a team of 11U players was formed to play in a league. That nucleus of girls returned for the 2012-2013 season and several newcomers joined them. Now with sufficient numbers of girls in the same age groups, Lokahi formed junior teams and, for the first time, entered junior teams in age group tournaments throughout an entire season.
The girls forming those historic inaugural Junior teams are pictured below.
