The end of the season party will be held on Sunday, June 12 at the Kiriu’s beach house located at 68-469 Crozier Drive, Waialua HI 96791. It will run from 10:30 a.m. to dark and will take place in the back yard/beach area of the property, so plan on bringing chairs, mats, towels, or other items to sit on. A shower and bathroom are available for our use but we will be spending the day outdoors. The beach is a good area for snorkeling and swimming. Look forward to seeing you all there!

The Kaizen 12s team finished in third place of the Gold Division of the final regional tournament of the season this past weekend. On Saturday the team won their pool, qualifying for the gold division. On Sunday, they missed the gold final by one game, coming in 3rd overall.  The girls played really well, coming from behind to win some heavily contested matches (their only two losses – one on Saturday and one on Sunday were to the two teams that made the finals). The girls fought hard against some tough competition, battling through some adversity and most importantly staying together as one through it all.  Congratulations to all the girls and to Coaches Wayne and Jason for a great regional tournament!

Kaizen regional

The 12s participated for the first time in a 14s tournament this past Saturday at Kalihi Valley Gym.  They finished in third place, defeating Kaleolani and Ka Makani 14 Green, splitting with SAS 13s, and dropping a close match to Kulia. Despite this being the first time for many of them playing against older competition, they were very competitive and had a strong showing.
This weekend, they will be in action at the 12s Regionals. They are scheduled to play on Saturday morning at McKinley High School. Good luck to Coaches Wayne and Jason and to all of the Kaizen girls!
