This school year CCCS Volleyball consists of a girls junior varsity team with students from seventh through eighth grade and both a girls varsity team and a boys varsity team with students from ninth through twelfth grade. It is the desire of the Head Coaches and their assistants to help our students develop their athletic skills as well glorify and grow in Christ Jesus the Lord.
Mr. Frank Decoite is our new Girls Volleyball Head Coach. Frank and his wife, Jessie, have been involved with the Calvary Chapel ministry for a number of years, and have served in many capacities. Currently, they both assist with the Children’s Ministry on Sundays.
In his junior and senior years, Coach Frank was the Captain for the Kailua High School Boys Varsity VolleyballTeam. Since that time he has been involved as a player and coach in a number of volleyball leagues, other sports, and athletic activities.
Coach Frank has a deep devotion and love for God, and he possess a passion in sharing God’s Word in a way that will make youth disciples for the Lord. His life verses are “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16) and “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:33-34).

This past volleyball season all three volleyball teams did an amazing job. The Girls Varsity team had an undefeated streak throughout the whole season and made it to the championships in the Hawaii Sports Fellowship. After a strenuous 3 set game, the girls took home the win; the final score being 15-13. The Boys Varsity team also made it to the championships and came in second place. After a tough season, the Girls Junior Varsity team pulled through and won their championship. Thank you for all your support, and please continue to pray for athletic program and for our athletes to keep their eyes focused on the Lord.
