The annual AYSO Rainbow Tournament, marking its 32nd year in 2012, is held from late June through early July at the Waipi'o Soccer Complex on O'ahu. Boys and girls teams in the U-10 through U-19 Divisions are invited to participate in the event.
The Rainbow Tournament began as a cultural exchange program, giving Hawai'i teams the chance to play against stronger Mainland teams. It is a competitive invitational Tournament with emphasis on cultural exchange and teams/spectators' sportsmanship behavior. The Tournament attracts dozens of teams each year.
Profits from the Tournament will be used to improve the coaching and referee programs within Section 7.
The Tournament will be held at the Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex from July 4th to July 7th 2013.
