Hawks prepare to take off for a new hockey season

As the grip begins to loosen on provincial restrictions against the pandemic, the Hawkesbury Hawks Junior Hockey Club looks ahead to the start of a new season in the Central Canada Hockey League.

The club has scheduled its annual open tryouts and training camp for July 10 to 12, at the Richcraft Sensplex in Gloucester. Application details for potential participants at the camp are available on the Hawks’ official website.

“For the 2020-21 season the Hawks are looking to fill five or six forward positions, three or four defence positions, and one goalie position,” states the club tryouts notice. “We anticipate making most of our roster decisions, especially on out-of-town players, that weekend.”

Hawks management noted on the club website that the camp is subject to the Hockey Canada COVID-19 guidelines. If, for any reason, the decision is made to cancel the camp before its scheduled mid-July date, all applicants will receive full refunds or credit towards future Hawks training programs.

Meanwhile Hawks coaching staff are already scouting for early draft picks for the new team roster in September. Massimo Pietroniro has now joined the Hawkesbury lineup. Pietroniro, whose brother Kris also plays for the Hawks, was on the lineup for Bishop’s College in the Midwest Prep Hockey League.
