Team Bid

Team Bid Process

Please submit your team bid via the Ultimate Central.

Supplemental materials, such as video or other media, are strongly encouraged and can be emailed to the Tournament Directors.

Show us what your team will contribute to the tournament and why you want to play in Hopu Ka Lewa! 16.

The more substantive your bid (see criteria below), the better your chances of getting to play!

This tournament is all about sharing the Ohana experience with the community and getting to know each other.

Creativity and artistic expression are strongly encouraged.

Deets

The $875 initial deposit will later be applied to seven individual players’ fees.

For those teams that do not make the final cut, we will refund your full deposit.

Bid-winning teams will be notified via email (as will wait-listed teams) by August 19.

Individual Registration will open on September 2.

Bid considerations: 

Every year, Hopu Ka Lewa’s popularity grows, and we have gotten to the point where we regretfully cannot accept all of the bid applications we receive.

In accordance with the mission of Hopu Ka Lewa, the committee will decide on team bid applications with the following priority considerations in mind.

These are not requirements to submit a successful bid application, but will only help your chances for invitation.

  • Note: This year’s event is capped at 20 teams (19 bid teams plus one spirit team)
  • Any bid format is acceptable; however, videos are preferred and must be 3 minutes or less
  • Contribution to HULA
  • Quality of bid
  • Past positive impact to Hopu/HULA
  • Philanthropy/growth of UltimateSpirit

Note: Committee retains ultimate discretion on selection of bids
