The Hawaii Police Department’s Traffic Services Section and Hawaii Isle Police Activities League is sponsoring a HI-PAL “Click It or Ticket” 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament.

Tournament play will take place on August 27-28, 2005, at the Waimea Parker School Gym in South Kohala.

Team entries are being accepted in the following age groups: 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-17 for both boys and girls divisions. A player may play only in one division, and the age cut-off date is December 31, 2005.
