HSSA: Hawaiian Surfing and Sports Association
The Hawaiian Surfing and Sports Association (HSSA) is an amateur football league in Hawaii. It was founded in 1960 and is based in Honolulu. The league has over 60 teams and plays its games at various locations around the state.
The HSSA is open to players of all ages and skill levels. The season runs from June to October. The championship game is called the HSSA Bowl.
The HSSA was founded in 1960 by a group of surfers who wanted to create a football league that would be accessible to all players. The league's first president was Duke Kahanamoku.
The HSSA has grown steadily over the years and is now one of the largest amateur football leagues in Hawaii. The league has produced a number of NFL players, including Tua Tagovailoa and Marcus Mariota.
The HSSA plays by the rules of the National Football League (NFL). However, there are a few minor differences. For example, the HSSA uses a smaller field than the NFL.
The HSSA also has a few unique rules. For example, the league does not allow blocking below the waist.
