Location

To be determined (Hawaii Convention Center or Moanalua High School).

Our 2017 Hoops in Hawaii Holiday Classic moved to the first class Hawaii Convention Center, right in Waikiki. We were the first NCAA event ever to be held there and we will be playing the upcoming 2018 Hoops in Hawaii DII Power Invitational there as well. We are currently in negotiations with the Convention Center for 2019.


Format

Hoops in Hawaii Thanksgiving and Holiday Classics will consist of two games each of predetermined opponents. Teams will secure entry on a first come first serve basis. Hoops in Hawaii DII Power Invitational will be held once again for NCAA DII men's teams that are of top25 caliber and by invitation only. Tournament will again be an eight-team traditional bracket format, guaranteed three games each.

Title sponsors/packages

Ala Moana Hotel by Mantra is our 2018 Title Sponsor and we are currently in negotiations for them to be our 2019 Title Sponsor again. All of our team's travel parties are required to and will be staying there. It's right across from the Hawaii Convention Center (game location), barely a five-minute walk! It's also next door to Hawaii's biggest shopping mall (Ala Moana Shopping Center) and a five-minute walk to the beach (Ala Moana Beach park). The location is unmatched!


Cost

• 2019 travel packages are currently being set with our title sponsor.

• Included in the packages are one practice, two games (three for the Invitational) and walkthrus (upon availability), as well as Classic Tshirts, Coaches Polo Shirts, game film, and assistance with setting up any discounted team meals with our sponsoring eating establishments.

• Flight quotes will not be able to be made until inside of 330 days of travel (approximately 1/1/19 for Thanksgiving participants) per airline regulations. Sports Travel Hawaii, LLC. (our partnering travel agency) puts it up for bid with all the major airlines and goes through a negotiating period on behalf of your team to ensure the best possible group rate.

• Meanwhile, if it will help with admin approval, we can offer you a ballpark estimate based off of 2018 rates, which we anticipate 2019 to be similar to.


Other Requirements

Travel party (coaches/players/admin/athletic trainer) will be required to use Sports Travel Hawaii, LLC. They are an established full service travel agency run with extensive local knowledge. They have preferred rates with major airlines and will also book and plan ground transportation and utilize contacts with businesses to offer activities (Luau, Pearl Harbor, Shows, Theme Parks, water activities, etc.) of your choosing for your team. A one-stop shop, no headaches or wasted hours of trip prep time on your end. We will take care of it all so that you can concentrate on just Coaching.

Boosters have an option and are highly encouraged to use Sports Travel Hawaii for the same great rates and convenience of traveling and staying with the team as well as experiencing the many activities on O'ahu with them too.
