Honolulu Riptide

Honolulu is one of 23 areas from across the US/Canada that makes up the National Gay Flag Football League, (NGFFL). Other members include: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas/Ft. Worth, DenverHouston, JacksonvilleLos Angeles, Michigan, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City, San AntonioSan Diego, Seattle, Silicon Valley, South Florida, Toronto and Washington DC.  The Gay Bowl is governed by the NGFFL board of directors.

The Honolulu Riptide is the HIGFFL travel team. We will field two squads in 2018 at Gay Bowl XVIII. The tournament will be played in Denver, Colorado during the weekend of Sept. 13th.

Tryouts for the Honolulu Riptide are taking place through the end of July 2018. Players should prepare for multiple practices in July, August and September to fine tune the team. Participation on the travel team may also involve attendance/duties at various fundraisers through the year. These fundraisers help offset the costs of flights, hotel stays, uniforms, etc.

We encourage all those interested in playing with the Honolulu Riptide to get involved with the league through The Aloha Classic and our Regular Season League.
