Flying Hawaiian Showcase Basketball



Welcome to the Flying Hawaiian Basketball Showcase. This incredible event is unlike anything else out there. You can go to Basketball camp anywhere. There are some really good ones. THIS IS NOT A TRADITIONAL BASKETBALL CAMP where you play basketball 8 hours a day 7 days a week. This is so much more.






You will depart from your gateway airport early Tuesday morning. Upon arrival at Honolulu International Airport you will receive a traditional aromatic fresh flower Hawaiian Lei greeting!  We will whisk you and your teammates to our host hotel ( scheduled to be Hyatt Place Waikiki) via private coach.  You will enjoy a picnic lunch that night on the beach followed by a new favorite-  The Great Hawaiian Scavenger Hunt !  Your time in the enchanted South Pacific will be filled with whirl winds of activity & opportunity centered around the  annual Flying Hawaiian Basketball Showcase. This prestigious, one-of- a- kind event has played host to both national & international players and includes both girls and boys teams, each having junior and senior divisions. This will make the event as competitive as possible & give you an opportunity unlike any other.


Our first adventure  planned  will have you become witness to the stoic & somber USS Arizona Memorial where you can shake hands & talk with some of the actual Pearl Harbor heroes. These men were survivors of that terrible day back in 1941 that launched our great nation into WW2.  This is a lifetime memory that both our athletes & families(especially the Grandparents that travel with us) have told us this is the single most MEMORABLE & MEANINGFUL portion of the trip.


Other planned excursions include visiting the golden SUN KISSED Hawaiian beaches with world famous surf spots framed against the endless warm crystal aqua blue water and rolling waves of the South Pacific Ocean. (Many get the urge to try surfing after seeing this- so be prepared)! Further up the coast you will see lush green tropical rainforests bursting with vibrant colors of exotic plant life & birds native to the tropics of Hawaii. A short time later we will be high in the Ko’olau Mountain Range that is set against an endless Pacific Ocean view from high atop blustery & windy Pali Lookout(TIP: don’t bring your favorite hat here as it will blow off your head – & yes, I have seen it happen).


We will indulge you with a shopping spree - Hawaiian Style at Aloha Stadium (home of the NFL Pro Bowl), & host to the largest open air market in Hawaii(TIP: You want to get most of your souvenirs at the Aloha Stadium Market as the values are unmatched). The rest of Wednesday afternoon is yours to explore the beach & Waikiki area. Have a great time & remember curfew is at 11:00PM when our staff has you sign in.


On Thursdays we have scheduled practice sessions for your teams. Our staff will put you through a brisk and intense workout before we break off into individual team practices. As always our collegiate athletic trainer and his staff will be on site to attend to any of your medical needs. At the conclusion of practices we will return to the hotel where you can spend the rest of the afternoon trying a little Beach Volleyball, catching some rays, watching the surfers & boogie boarders, or trying it yourself.


This amazing day ends with a breathtaking Polynesian Cultural Experience. Imagine seeing the orange sun slipping lazily down behind the golden horizon in the endless South Pacific & giving you the most incredible sunset view. You will dine like Hawaiian Royalty while watching an incredible Hula show that you will be talking about for the rest of your life.

Friday is always a special time as it is YOUR DAY because you are in charge. We have those who will test their skills at one of the panoramic Golf courses throughout Oahu, while others options include surf lessons, Parasail, hike Diamond Head Crater, jet ski, go deep sea fishing, take a sunset harbor cruise, swim with the Dolphins, or get a bird’s eye view with a helicopter tour. We do have something for those adrenaline junkies: Dive with the sharks in a protected shark cage! Some just want to hang on the beach, work on tans & check out the local Waikiki scene. The day will be yours to create your own ADVENTURE(Tip: Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay is incredible & also relatively inexpensive)!




. The competitions begin  Saturday while Sunday is known as Flying Hawaiian Championship Day. Typically you will play 2-3 games per day.


We only utilize certified Basketball officials, most of whom are COLLEGIATE OFFICIALS.  We make sure everything is in place, so YOU WILL have the opportunity to PLAY YOUR BEST BASKETBALL.


Many STUDENT ATHLETES & PARENTS tell us that they maximized their true skill set in Hawaii.


I can play my best here. Why? Simple: You are truly relaxed and having the time of your life with NO outside DISTRACTIONS. Think of the best you have ever played and almost always it is when you are in a relaxed and peaceful state of mind. Imagine for a moment and could you see yourself playing great and having the time of your life. We see it every year.


This truly is the exposure opportunity & adventure of a lifetime.

This event has grown where we can only accommodate a limited amount of student athletes. There are also quite a few family members that will travel with us and this becomes a memory that your family will collectively cherish the rest of their lives.


In this uncertain world(and getting crazier by the day), we take memories for granted. Are there really many things more important than opportunities & experiences that you have or that your family is there to share with you?


Many student athletes receive this experience as a CHRISTMAS GIFT or in some cases a GRADUATION present. This is an amazing gift to both get and to receive.


The application process is FREE – so you have nothing to lose and a world of OPPORTUNITY, EXPOSURE & ADVENTURE to gain. So what are you waiting on??
