Welcome to Hawaii’s very own Development Football League providing a training and competitive platform for players to enhance their skills while once again playing the game they love. The HGL maintains an amateur sports status in order to compete against our international partners who also carry the same amateur status. We will also continue to be an amateur sports organization so that athletes who participate don’t risk any NCAA eligibility.
In January of 2012 we had the honor of co-hosting the Canadian Football League(CFL) Tryouts at Roosevelt High School in Honolulu alongside the Offensive Coordinator of the Toronto Argonauts and 2012 CFL MVP and Former UH Football Star Chad Owens. This instantly showed all of Hawaii we were serious about Football and creating opportunities for our local athletes.
In 2012 the HGL started on its quest by hosting Team USA All-Stars from West Virginia. In December of 2012 The HGL had the honor of hosting and competing against the Southern Cross All-Stars from Australia already bringing to life the vision of our founder to compete internationally and bring international football competition to Hawaii.
In March of 2013 together with AFL-Global the HGL co-hosted the AFL-China tryouts at Radford High School in Honolulu.
After a successful 2013 season the AFL-China team returned granting 7 players from the HGL the honor to play in the Official 2013 Arena Football All-Star Game as well as an exclusive exhibition game in Beijing, China. This was a tremendous step for our players and organization and via the relationship between our founder and the AFL-China team we are The Official Training Partner of AFL-China.
The future has no limits for the players in the HGL who possess the skills, work ethic, dedication and the vision to follow your football dreams. But it starts with you and how you prepare yourself to be ready when the opportunity comes. Are you ready for the Hawaii Gridiron League?
