Aloha Everyone and Welcome to the home of the Hawaii Gridiron League and the Hawaii Women’s Gridiron League. It’s exciting times around here as we get ready for the upcoming Winter Season of the HWGL and the 3rd Season of the HGL. In preparation it’s that time of year where we search the islands for the players who have the skills, heart, determination and real love for the game to carry out the mission and dreams of the HGL. In 2014 the HGL presents event greater opportunities for local players to not only be football stars locally but can also lead to them playing the game professionally internationally.
In 2013 we witnessed QB Watson Togiailua attend the Euro Sports Combine and be on his way to Denmark and lead his team the the German Football Championship and proudly represent Hawaii and the HGL.
Current players WR Scott Carr, LB Nui Spikes, DL Tyrone Alualu, K Kenton Chun, OL Andy Ramos, K Kimo Naehu were all selected to showcase their skills in the Arena Football All Star Game in Honolulu as well as a part of History in the first professional football game to ever be played in China at the AFL-China Exhibition Game. QB Watson Togiailua also played in the Honolulu Arena Football All Star Game. All these players were paid and treated like pros by the AFL-China Team and are well on their way to being selected to play in the AFL-China Professional League due to kickoff in late 2014.
All of the above players were found at Official HGL Tryouts and now it’s time to find Who’s Next to live their dream of playing the game on the next level.
Our first 2014 Players Open Tryout will be held Sunday January 12th at the foot of the Koolau Mountains at Kaneohe District Park. The day kicks off with late registration at 12:00noon with on the field introductions at 1:15pm. At 1:30pm we will begin warmups and stretching immediately followed by breaking players into groups to go through testing and sports specific drills. The day will wrap up with some 1 on 1’s for all positions and 7 on 7’s for skills positions, linebackers and fullbacks. We strongly recommend for all participants to arrive early to allow any additional warmup time that may be needed. All participants new to the Hawaii Gridiron League must pay a registration fee of $25 to attend while returning players can workout for free.
