Holiday Off – Discoverer’s Day and Attendance Notification

KapCity Hurricanes is on Holiday Today (Monday, 10/13).

  • Flag Teams will resume practice on Wednesday and Friday.
  • Tackle Teams will resume practice Tuesday – Friday.

We have a full schedule of games at Kapolei Community Park and our Homecoming Celebration this Saturday, 10/18!!

All players have mandatory practices as we finish up the last few season games and head into playoffs.  If your child is absent you MUST notify your respective Head Coaches via text message, email, instant message or a phone call.  A no call, no show will be treated as such and player’s will be disciplined according to our Player’s Contract that was signed at the beginning of the season. Player’s who miss one week of practice without proper notification to their Head Coach or Team Manager will be dropped from the teams’ roster and be ineligible to play in the playoffs.  We will collect equipment that is owed to us and your player will be dismissed from the team.

We are sorry to take such drastic measures, but it is unfair to the coaches and the team when player’s do not show up for practice, but expect to play in the games.  Should you have any questions, you may contact Leilani Ma’ae directly at 393-5844.

Homecoming for KapCity Hurricanes, October 18

LOCATION: KAPOLEI COMMUNITY PARK (in the villages)

Saturday, October 18 is our last home game before playoffs.  Parents, family and friends are invited to show their team spirit by:

  • Making posters and banners for your child and the team.
  • Bringing balloons, horns, pompoms and dress up in our team colors.
  • Bringing candy leis and/or goodie bags for team members.
  • Decorate tents, tables and chairs.
  • Players may wear different colored socks provided they are in our team colors of black, white or teal (or pink).
  • We will make a tunnel for our kids after each game.

PROHIBITED ITEMS:  graffiti, confetti, streamers, ripped papers and spray paint.

CLEAN-UP:  Each family must bring their own plastic trash bags to dispose of all rubbish.  Unfortunately, there are not enough trash bins at the park to accommodate our organization.  Your kokua is greatly appreciated!

NOTE: We are working on having a professional camera man present for that day to film. He will have 3 cameras set up to shoot the days games and activities, and produce a highlight video for our kids.  He will be there all day to film all 4 teams.  To help off set our costs for this video we are asking each player to pay $5. We would like to collect this payment by Monday, October 13.
