Maitaki Hakapauhenua was elected President in 2009 and re-elected in 2013. Under his leadership, volleyball in the Solomon Islands has seen a dramatic transformation and has become one of the Solomon Islands’ prominent sporting disciplines.

The president noted that the achievements of the last four years included referee training sessions, participation in national and international competitions and the organization of provincial volleyball associations. He also talked about the challenges facing the SIVF, including a lack of facilities and sponsorship. 

The president stated that volleyball was the No. 2 sports in the Solomon Islands but he still wants to develop the grassroots more to give the sport a more solid foundation. He praised the referees and other officials for their work and congratulated the women’s national team for their victory against the Cook Islands in the Oceania Zonal Championship in Fiji last year when they won a bronze medal for the first time.
