Aloha Summer Classic FAQ
Are There Any COVID Protocols That We Need to Follow?
The Aloha Region puts everyone’s safety at the forefront. These guidelines are very fluid given various factors (at this time the State is in “tier 4” and the immunization percentage is 55%). Once we get to 60 % the protocols will changes. But for now the following will apply:
- Everyone entering the Convention Center must wear a face mask - appropriately, except when eating or drinking this includes tournament staff, vendors, participants, and spectators. Only those children below 5 years of age may opt not to wear a mask.
- The Convention Center personnel will take temperature checks for everyone.
- Seating / Chairs will be in groups of 10 so please do not separate the chairs. If we get to 60% immunization projected by July 8, 2021, we will be at 25 for indoor gatherings.
- Maintain social distancing, (6’) between groups.

What is the Tournament Format?
The tournament format will be round robin will be held on the first day with some overlap on the second day of the tournament. Play divisions with insufficient teams will be placed in the next older age division for round-robin play.
As long as there are at least four teams in an age division they will be split off for the championship round with their own playoffs, team trophies, and individual medals, and their own “All-star” team voted by coaches in their age division.
Matches during the round robin and championship rounds will be the best of three. The first two sets will be played to 25 pts with a cap of 27 pts. The third (if necessary) set will be played to 15 with no cap.
