Field update: March 28 2017:
Due to snow still on the field, we have had to cancel practices tonight.
Please check the website regularly for updates. We will keep you posted as the Town updates us on the field conditions.
Boys Field Lacrosse -
Due to our current weather conditions and a snow covered field our practices scheduled for this week have been cancelled. Please check out our website calendar to stay up to date with your son/daughter's practices.
U13 boys field team - due to the large registration number this season our U13 team will need to hold tryouts. The first 3 held practices will be open to all registrations with the team formed after the third practice. (3 practices will be held before first schedule game - April 15th, 2017)
U17 boys field team - due to a smaller number of players this season in Huntsville, and Orillia not able to field a team, we have picked up a few players from Orillia to help with our numbers. Team may have optional practices in different cities this season to allow ease of southern players to make the trip north. Possible practices in Bracebridge or Orillia throughout the season.
Season - Games will begin April 15th (U9, U11, U13) and April 16th (U15, U17) complete schedule to come ASAP.
Weather - if the colder trend of weather continues and we are unable to get onto Conroy park, teams will have a minimum of one indoor practice before season begins.
Girls Field Lacrosse -
We are still looking for some girls for our rep program to take part in the OWFL this season. Deadline is this Friday March 24th at midnight.
Girls Development Continues - The third season of our girls development program will continue again this season. Our program gives our local lady lacrosse players a chance to try the great sport of women's lacrosse with fellow girls in skill and development format. Women's Field Lacrosse is very different than the Men's game, from the stick, to the equipment, as well it is a non-contact sport. This 8 week program will start on May 3rd, 2017 and run every Wednesday evening until June 21st at Conroy Park. (for more information check out our girls tab on website)

Congratulations to Kaiya Roberson, in Bantam, and Alexis Roberson, in Midget, for winning Gold Medals at the Girls Box Lacrosse Nationals held in Calgary last week!
We have two more Huntsville Hawks that have achieved Team Ontario Positions but this time on the Field instead of in the Box. Caleb Creasor and Jason Knox attended the last tryout for the U18 Team last night in Oshawa. With approximately 30 participants, and 4 of those goalies, Creasor, a Goalie, and Knox, a face off/Middie/attack player were offered positions at the end of the tryout. The boys are of the youngest year to be on the team as they turn 16 later this year. This was Knox's first return to contact play since his injury sustained at OMFLL Field provincials this past spring.
Last but not least, on a bench Level, we can not forget to Mention that the Huntsville Hawks are represented well. Gus McLaughlin is the Trainer for the Peewee Box Team Ontario for the 7th year straight, and our HDMLA President, Jason Rudge, is A member of the U15 Team Ontario Men's field lacrosse team bench/management.
Both the U15 and U18 Men's Field teams will compete September 2-4 in Winnepeg Mannitoba. The Box Nationals will be at the Lax Festival in Whitby between the Ontario Provincial Games.
Congratulations to all Hawks!!
Team Ontario. Congratulations Brett! Unfortunately Jason Knox's injury has taken him out of the running for this year.
WE now have a couple Players trying out for the U15 and U18 Team Ontario Field teams June 29th. Details to come soon!
From the Midget Box boys second tryout, Midget Hawk, Jason Knox, has been called back for the third and final tryout. He will be attending the tryout - but watching from the stands - as he received a broken collar bone at Field Provincials on the May long weekend. His return to play date is still pending and is still in consideration for the team. We also have Midget Hawk, Brett Handsor, able to attend the the third tryout. As Brett was unable to attend the first two tryouts due to being out of the country with school, consideration for his participation on the team will be decided on the single tryout. Both Players participated on Team Ontario for the Bantam Box Team Ontario in 2014. This was held in NewWestminster B.C. Handsor also participated on Peewee Box Team Ontario 2012 in Whitby Ontario.
Newest Team Ontario Members for Girls Box Lacrosse 2016
The Huntsville Minor Hawks had 4 peewees and 1 Bantam take part in a grueling Identification camp last month trying out for Team Ontario 2016, and 3 Midget Box players go to the first Midget Box Team Ontario Tryout as well as 2 Girls Box Players trying out this month. As of May 15 none of our peewees nor our Bantam have received a call back but we have two Midget Box Players, Jason Knox and Cole Hanrahan, receiving call backs for the second Midget tryout this Friday. The Hawks are also hoping that once Brett Handsor returns from school he will also be considered to attend a tryout for Midget. However both girls, Kaiya and Alexis Roberson have made their respective Girls Box teams!
A previous Minor Hawk, who now plays with an Orillia Girls Box Team, Shelby Ludlow, has also made Team Ontario for her age group of Intermediate.
Congratulations to the Girls and Good Luck to the Midgets on their call back Friday May 20 from 10am - 4pm in Bomanville.
In June the Field Lacrosse Team Ontario teams will be trying out and presently Huntsville has 5 players signed up to attend this.
GO HAWKS GO!!
