The Hawaii Island Police Activities League Program (HI-PAL) invites 6th, 7th and 8th graders to participate in the HI-PAL Boys and Girls Intermediate School Basketball League, which runs from September through November.
HI-PAL staff will help interested students from intermediate and middle schools form teams to represent their schools. Each team will compete against teams from other schools. Students from home schools — or from middle or intermediate schools without enough participants to form a complete team — will be combined into their own team.
Participants will compete in separate leagues representing East and West Hawaii. Players from each league will then compete in a championship tournament.
The HI-PAL program is also looking for responsible adults interested in coaching a team in the basketball league. A coach’s meeting for this event will be announced later.
For more information, please call the HI-PAL offices at 961-2220 in Hilo or 326-4646, extension 258, in Kona.
