Girls are welcome and encouraged to play at all age levels. HAWK does not currently have any teams that are girls only.
House vs Travel Hockey
House Hockey (B) is generally the starting point for most players. All players in the age group are welcome to play together, there are not tryouts for house hockey. Each player is given the same opportunity to develop hockey skills. HAWK holds draft skates at the start of the season to asses each players abilities and they are placed on a team by the hockey director. The goal of the draft skate is to make the teams in the age group as even as possible.
Travel Hockey (A) (AA) is for the more skilled hockey players. Teams hold tryouts and the players are selected by the coaching staff to play on the team. The time commitment, costs and travel are greater with travel hockey.
