The following statement was issued by the Hawaii High School Athletic Association yesterday:
HHSAA approves modified calendar
The Hawaii High School Athletic Association (HHSAA) executive board by unanimous vote approved a modified calendar calling for state tournaments in every sport. To comply with the Department of Education’s pause on extracurricular activities until September 24th, the HHSAA calendar allows for three full seasons from that date. Until that time, leagues will be allowed to govern themselves as to what will be allowed.
“It is a testament to our members to be able to agree to a calendar on such short notice,” stated Executive Director, Chris Chun. “Furthermore, this calendar preserves league and state championships, which gives student-athletes something that has been missing since February 2020. It shows the Department of Education, Department of Health, and our state and county leaders that there is a plan in place once all schools can resume on September 24th.”
The HHSAA member leagues include the Big Island Interscholastic Federation (BIIF), Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH), Kauai Interscholastic Federation (KIF), Maui Interscholastic League (MIL), and the Oahu Interscholastic Association (OIA).
