Hawaii Impact Football Association (HIFA) is a youth athletic organization that promotes sportsmanship, teamwork and dedication while learning the fundamentals of football in a safe and enjoyable environment. Our goal is for each player to learn life lessons that goes beyond the playing field and into their academics, families and communities. We strive to instill values of education and the importance of keeping a proper balance between their scholastic and athletic undertakings.
We are an 11 on 11 youth football league looking to branch out through the island of Oahu. As an independent youth football organization we pride ourselves on being a local league and not being affiliated with any national organization.
We have 4 divisions (2 flag and 2 tackle). Each program has various levels of competition from 11 on 11 flag football for ages 5 - 10 to competitive tackle football for 8 -13. Each Organization that is part of HIFA is independently owned and operated. We are a fall/winter league (August to December).
The expectations of the season for the players, parents, and coaches will vary based on the age & division they play.
