Like & Share:Hawaiian Invite Summer 2018

This summer, the Sunset Water Polo Club will be traveling to Hawaii to compete in the 50th Annual Hawaiian Invitational.  This informational flier will hopefully answer all preliminary questions about the event.

 

WHEN IS IT:

 

July 31 – August 5th 2018

 

ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT:

 

Since its inception in 1968, the Hawaiian Invitational Water Polo Tournament has grown to become one of the largest and most prestigious water polo tournaments in the world. The Hawaiian Invitational also enjoys its standing as the oldest annual international water polo tournament in the world, annually attracting as many as 115 teams from around the world. In 2017, teams from the Netherlands, New Zealand, Italy, England, Australia, Brazil and Canada participated in the Hawaiian Invitational.

WHERE IT WILL BE PLAYED:

 

Tournament games are held in Olympic-sized, 50-meter pools. The University of Hawaiʻi, Punahou School, `Iolani School and Kamehameha School pools, all located within a twenty-minute drive of Waikiki, serve as tournament sites.

 

TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE:

 

Teams should expect to play one game per day during the first five days of the tournament.  Those teams that advance in their division will play in a championship match on the last day of the competition, Saturday for 14 and under divisions and Sunday for all other divisions.  This leaves ample time to experience the beauty and excitement of Hawaii!!

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SUNSET FAMILIES:

 

CONFIRMATION: Players/Families need to confirm their interest level by January 3rd.  Once we have an idea of how many players/families to expect on this trip, we can then book flights and lodging for the team and present an accurate price per person.   

 

PROJECTED PRICE PER PLAYER: $1500-$2000

 

FINAL DATE TO JOIN: January 31st will be the final date to submit payment for this event.

This event will be an incredible experience for everyone involved.  Families of players are highly encouraged to attend this event as well!  The tournament schedule provides for plenty of time to experience Hawaii independently of the team.  There will be plenty of team-planned functions as well though!
