MEDIA RELEASE

The Hawaii Isle Police Activities League is sponsoring its annual islandwide HI-PAL Boys and Girls Intermediate Basketball League.

League play will start on September 11 and run through November 18, 2001. Teams are formed within their public or private intermediate schools, and with the help of the HI-PAL staff, they will play against other intermediate schools throughout the Big Island.

All registered seventh and eighth grade players will go through a draft system within their schools. Home school students and those attending schools that cannot form a team will be placed on teams that don�t have enough players.

Adults must attend the meeting to confirm they are willing to coach a team. A West Hawaii’s coaches meeting will be announced at a later date.
