Aloha, Rainbow Wahine Volleyball Supporters!


The Wahine Volleyball Booster Club was formally organized in 1987 but has been informally supporting the Rainbow Wahine Volleyball program since the very early 80's. Its primary purpose is to support the University of Hawai‘i Rainbow Wahine Volleyball program so that it can remain one of the elite programs in the country. It does this through monetary donations, organizing and running special program events, and providing that special sense of ohana to the players and staff that is so unique to Hawai‘i. At the wheel of this organization are four officers and four directors who are elected every two years. They set the course and direction for the club, but it is our members who volunteer for the various activities of the club that power the organization. Our family of volunteers are always ready to help -- not only our team, but the visiting teams as well. The reputation of our volleyball program and its booster organization is well known among the coaching fraternity and many look forward to scheduling a trip to the "fabled land of volleyball".

The Wahine Volleyball Booster Club operates as a sub-entity under ‘Ahahui Koa Anuenue, a Hawai‘i nonprofit corporation, which is the umbrella fundraising organization for all UH-Manoa athletic booster groups. All funds raised by AKA and its booster clubs, including the Wahine Volleyball Booster Club, are deposited with and managed by The University of Hawai‘i Foundation.

The University of Hawai‘i Foundation, or UH Foundation, is also a Hawai‘i nonprofit corporation and it has a 501(c)(3) organization designation from the Internal Revenue Service. It is a legally separate entity from the University of Hawai‘i and all other UH affiliates. However, it is institutionally related in that UHF works exclusively for the benefit of the University of Hawai‘i. UHF is the tax exempt charitable organization contracted by UH to be the central organization that receives, receipts and holds all donations made to AKA and booster clubs that support UH Manoa athletics programs. The Athletics Department uses funds, donations, and contributions received by UHF in accordance with the donors’ intents, NCAA regulations, and UHF expenditure policies.

Our Mission
It is the mission of the Wahine Volleyball Booster Club to provide financial and moral support, attract new fans, and promote a positive environment that will maintain the nation’s elite volleyball program.

Our Vision
To provide the best academic and athletic environment for the student athletes at any university in America.

Rainbow Wahine Volleyball Set to Embark on Europe Trip (05/08/15)


The Rainbow Wahine are set to leave soon on their European Tour. They will be gone from May 15 to May 28, 2015, but after factoring in the travel time to and from Europe, they will actually be on European soil for eleven days. During that time, they will be visiting five cities (Milan, Venice, Maribor, Vienna and Prague) in four countries (Italy, Slovenia, Austria and the Czech Republic) and playing a total of six to seven matches. Their current schedule, which is subject to change once they arrive, calls for them to play two matches against Italian Federation teams, three against Slovenian Federation teams, one against the Tunisia Senior National team and possibly one against the Czech Republic senior team, in addition to holding a number of practice sessions. And, of course, there will sightseeing tours in the schedule, too. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser is sending writer Cindy Luis along on the trip so there should be a number stories and photos by the Star-Advertiser and on her blog, Volleyshots.

Donate to Head Coach Dave Shoji's Coaches' Choice (05/06/15)


What is COACHES' CHOICE? It's " Giving Where It Matters Most"

Coaches are constantly faced with program needs that they may or may not have the financial resources for. Securing everyday items to support their practices or athletes’ game experiences may be a struggle during these challenging times. That’s where the UH Coaches’ Choice Donor program comes in. Coaches’ Choice is a way to give donors the ability to contribute as little as $10 directly to program needs. Giving is fast, easy and secure with Coaches’ Choice.

Rainbow Wahine Volleyball Head Coach Dave Shoji chose for his Coaches' Choice an item that will help not only his program but all of the arena sports programs: A Saber Glide Floor Cleaning Machine. It will keep all four University of Hawaii gym floors cleaner making them better and safer for practices and games. All gym sports, both competitive and intermural, will benefit from this service which will also extend the life of all gym floors.

To Donate to Coaches' Choice, click here.
