The HAWK Hockey goal would be to provide opportunities for all children that want to play hockey, be given the chance to play hockey.
We at HAWK understand that Hockey is a major family financial commitment, and that some family budgets can not cover the full cost of their child playing hockey.
We are in the early stages in developing our program. We are hoping to grow this program with fund raisers, local business sponsors, and Grants from other HAWK families that wish to help the members of our association. We have created a special account to be used for only Scholarships.
To apply confidentially for the scholarship please fill out the application below and put it in an envelope marked attn: Treasurer, place in the Treasurers payment box at Walker Ice and Fitness. If you have been granted a scholarship in a previous season at this time we will not be able to approve another one as we have many families that are in need of assistance. You also must be in good standing and be up to date with payments at time of application.
All applications will be reviewed by the HAWK Board and Scholarships will be given strictly based on financial needs.
If you are a local business or individual that would like to help please contact the HAWK Board at firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsorship opportunities.

FACIAL COVERINGS (Executive Order 2020-180)
On Monday, September 14th, an updated document was released by the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) entitled, “Public Guidance for Contact Sports.” This document contained an important update, as it pertains to Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-180. Specifically, the second page makes the following clarification:
“If a cloth face covering cannot be tolerated while engaging in athletic activity, a plastic face shield covering the mouth and nose would also be acceptable.”
In response to this, the Executive Committee met with District Chairs, the Michigan Coach-in-Chief, and the Michigan Referee-in-Chief to discuss this critical update, as well as how to implement this standard within our hockey community. Given the emerging facial covering options throughout the marketplace, including from hockey manufacturers such as Bauer and CCM, many families are looking for direction on how to safely comply with the Executive Order. As the standard continues to evolve, the Michigan Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) is committed to providing clarity to all participants, in an effort to ensure consistency in implementation as well as enforcement.
Please review the revised MAHA Return to Play Standards, attached to this letter. We have refined the list of appropriate facial coverings for our game. Please note that this list is subject to change, as many of the new options on the marketplace are under review by the Hockey Equipment Certification Council (HECC) and USA Hockey’s Safety & Protective Equipment Committees. The MAHA will provide continued updates as they become available.
We are dedicated to improving and enhancing the quality of ice hockey in West Michigan. We will do this by developing hockey skills, encouraging sportsmanship between players, and instilling a true enjoyment in the sport of hockey.
