Did You Know?

The first “hoops” were actually just peach baskets and the first backboards were made of wire.

Momilani Hoops Academy

The Momilani Hoops Academy in its 5th year is a basketball program that works in partnership with our own Hui O Momilani.  Mr. Omine (Gr. 1 teacher), Mr. Yuen (Gr. 2 teacher), and Mr. Hernandez (parent) will conduct the classes. There is also a mentorship program where selected 6th graders will volunteer and mentor students in grades K-2.


Over the past 5 years, the class has raised over $50,000 that has been used to support school programs and events.


The Momilani School of Hoops after school program will begin:

  • Grades 1-2 start Tuesday, December 1
  • Grades 3-6 start Thursday, December 3
  • Grade K starts Tuesday, March 29



On behalf of Mr. Omine and Mr. Yuen, we would like to thank The Momilany Elementary School Faculty and Community for their support with the Momilani Hoops Academy.
