Monkeys Look to Defend Their Title in the 11th Anniversary Hawai'i Lacrosse Invitational




bulletFor the past ten years, the Hawai'i Invitational has been an event with Big Aloha and Big Lacrosse!!!  This year’s tournament promises to be the best ever!  Teams are expected from all across the World- Australia, Japan, Korea, Hawai’i, Canada & the U.S. Mainland.

The games will be played at Kapi'olani Park, undoubtedly one of the best lacrosse locations in the World!  Located near the foot of Diamond Head, a magnificent volcanic crater, and adjacent to the beach. The goal is for everyone to enjoy both exciting lacrosse and a fantastic vacation in Paradise, and with the tournament centered at Kapi'olani Park, we should once again be successful in achieving this goal.

As usual, there are numerous events planned (see below list) to help everyone experience the Aloha of Hawai'i.  Things will officially get underway with a Kick-Off Party at Kapono's on Friday night. A great time is guaranteed- with a Hula performance at 8pm and music by top Hawai'ian musicians Johnny Cruz and Henry Kapono.  One of the other big gigs in Honolulu every week is the Sunday Sunset party at Duke’s Canoe Club on the beach in Waikiki.  We will be in the catbird seat for this celebration as well as we will have the entire poolside area, including tables and bar, reserved for our Aloha Party. 

Of course, no tournament would be successful without good lacrosse, and as past years have shown, there will be plenty of that at the Eleventh Anniversary ’01 Hawai'i Invitational.  For the past several years, many of the participants have been former World Team Players, NCAA National Champions and Collegiate All-Americans, including:  Gary Gait, Rodney Tapp & Matt Shearer (Team Canada ’98); Kevin Finneran, Casey Powell, Jon Hess, Jesse Hubbard  (Team USA ’98); Jake Bergey (MLL, All-American), Lindsey Dixon (Team USA ’94); Zoo (Team Canada ’94); Glenn Miles (Team USA ’90)…..  As an established eleven year old tournament, the level of lacrosse at this year’s tournament should be no different than in the past.

Finally, it is strongly recommended that you spend at least a week enjoying the many great things that Hawai'i has to offer, such as surfing, scuba diving, parasailing, mountain biking, hiking, golf….  In fact, one of the Hawai'i Lacrosse club members owns “Hawai'i Outdoor Adventures”  and would be happy to arrange deals on many of the above activities.
