Get Recruited in Hawaii! The 7th Annual Hawaii Volleyball Combine will be held January 22-24, 2016. The 6th Annual Hawaii Volleyball Combine was a success with many players getting offers and interest, including offers to 16 seniors! Players are recruited every year right here in Honolulu, Hawaii. This is the first and only volleyball combine in Hawaii and it is the only recruiting event where college coaches can recruit players right here in Hawaii. Four years ago, we were featured in Volleyball Magazine's April 2011 Edition. Our first year, 2010, we had 18 colleges attending the combine. In 2011, 13 colleges, 2012 - 24 colleges, 2013 - 28 colleges, 2014 - 31 colleges, and 2015 - 41 colleges. This includes DI, DII, DII and NAIA colleges!
