Kaimana Update

Helolo and She Go Ho are officially accepted to Kaimana Klassik XXI.
The tourney should be fun with it finally being legal ;)

She Go Ho wasn't able to get enough Big Island players so we are joining with some Oahu players as well as the Alaska team : Bella Coola.
We're excited to have such a great mix of players and want to say thanks to oahu and alaska for joining with us.

Helolo has an abundance of great players. We are excited to see how far they will get this year and what awesome facial hair they can produce.

Good Luck to all the teams in preparation for Kaimana Klassik!

Rockin' Rules

Picks:
  1. A pick occurs whenever an offensive player moves in a manner that causes a defensive player guarding (II.G) an offensive player to be obstructed by another player. Obstruction may result from contact with, or the need to avoid, the obstructing player.
  2. A pick can be called only by the obstructed player and must be announced by loudly calling pick immediately after it occurs.
  3. If play stops according to XVI.C, players reposition according to XVI.C.4. In addition, the obstructed player is then allowed to move to recover the relative position lost because of the pick.
