Hockey on Hold

Hawks and Future Hawks, due to the Novel Corona Virus that has stricken the globe, the only information we can provide at this time is Hawks Hockey is on hold.  As of today all hockey activities: tryouts, skills sessions, team building activities and our 1st ever Hawks weeklong skills camp with Jeff and Billy, are at a standstill.  We are hopeful to have answers for you all in the next few weeks as the curve flattens across the country.  Our annual banquet has been postponed until further notice, we are looking to honor our Hawks at a venue in late August or early September. Again all of this is dependent on USA Hockey and Government officials opening up the State, relaxing social distancing as well as Rinks establishing new protocol to help keep the curve flattened.  We will keep our tryout registration open for all who wish to be a Hawk or current Hawks wanting more clarity in terms of when will hockey start. So stay tuned, Stay safe and Stay Home.

Wallingford Hawks Program Overview

The Hawks are the oldest youth hockey  program in America and one of the most successful travel programs in the state. We are an American Development Model (ADM) compliant program with the objective of long-term development.

Session 1 is a 4 week session (one weekend instructional hour per week) from mid October until the weekend prior to Thanksgiving.  Session 2 runs from beginning of January through mid Early February  and consists of two weekend instructional hours (Sat and  Sun.) per week. Registration for Learn to Skate  opens in late summer.
