Central Park Hawks - Boys Select Teams
Playing for the Hawks gives children the opportunity and experience to step up their game. We take a different approach with the Hawks in that if a player has the desire and potential to participate we invite them out to be evaluated rather than tryout. Additionally, coaches may recommend players showing the potential in the house league an invitation to join a Hawk practice. With encouragement and experience our coaching staff can properly develop their abilities and manage their expectations so as they are successful. The schedule is devised so as the teams can compete against neighboring select teams involving very limited travel and a manageable game schedule. The Hawks are perfect for players families that would like to avoid the rigors of other more stressful travel programs but want their child to have the opportunity and experience to participate at a more competitive level than the in house teams. The Hawks begin skating mid September so as they will be ready for games late October with the season ending mid March.
