The Oahu Interscholastic Association Division I and Division II regular-season football schedule is out.

As expected, there are some games on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Due to a referee shortage, the league wanted to spread out games through the week.

There are a total of six Wednesday games — two in D-I and four in D-II. In addition, there are 16 Thursday games. The OIA has had some seasons in which there were a few Thursday games, but this will be the first time there are Wednesday games.

The OIA D-I playoffs will start the weekend of Oct. 5-6 and finish up the weekend of Oct. 26-27.

All OIA regular-season games for 2017 are listed below and are subject to change.

>> Unless otherwise noted, the JV start times are 5 p.m. for junior varsity and approximately 7:30 p.m. for varsity for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday games. For Saturday games, the start times are 4 p.m. for junior varsity and appoximately 6:30 p.m. for varsity.

>> For games played on days other than Saturday, the JV start times are a half-hour later than last year.

>> Many OIA teams will also be playing a nonleague game on the weekend of Aug. 4-5. Hawaii Prep World has a partial list of those games and is working on getting a complete list. For an in-progress master schedule that includes Oahu (OIA and ILH) teams’ preseason scrimmages, nonleague games, games against mainland opponents as well as this OIA regular-season schedule, click here.

    The season starts too early..

    Who’s the brainiac(s) that did these schedules? You have teams playing on Saturday then playing again the next Thursday? Kids going get hurt.

    Cancel practice. Easy solution. Or just make those days bonding sessions. Can tell spooky stories, go to the movies, have dad vs. sons scrimmage or learn new songs and dances for example. More to life than football.

    All I see that Waialua schedule never changed we still play 4 damn week day games which is Thursday’s. Idk why the OIA just doesn’t let the kids play on a Sunday it would make it easier for everyone refs, staff and student athletes. The OIA director needs a reality check

    OIA Schedule still favors the “power schools” Kahuku is being babied yet again, and you expect people to say they are #1?? They need to schedule teams like Farrington, Kapolei or Mililani in their regular season schedule to say they are the very best.

    Mililani should be in drivers seat for Open Division bid, but with OIA playing patty cake with other leagues, they shame the public school system, the kids, and the State of Hawaii Man up and compromise with other leagues.

    How do they make up the schedules? Not to dis other teams that mililani plays but mililani has an easy schedule. I want to see them play kahuku, saint Louis, punahou and the likes. What is the process and who is putting the schedule together?

  7. Norman Kaaihue September 26, 2017 4:51 am

    Waianae played Saint Louis Kahuku and Kapolei first 3 games. Who did Mililani play. OIA favors certain schools and the schedule is gravy. let all the power schools play each other like before. Not putting them down but look at the scheduling. They should put KAHUKU, MILILANI, FARRINGTON, WAIANAE, KAPOLEI, LEILEHUA, CAMPBELL ALL IN ONE DIVISION.

  8. Jason Keuma October 10, 2017 10:55 pm

    The schedule is determined by the win loss record every two years. The schedule it not the problem. The “playoffs” are the problem. Sub .500 team in the playoffs? All but two teams in OIA D1 make it to the OIA playoffs. Cut it back to the top three teams of the Red and Blue. The top seeds get a bye, the bottom four play each other. Fewer games but more meaningful games. Makes the regular season mean something, other than rewarding the second to last team one more game.
