2021 Coaching Application

Click here to apply! Deadline is Dec 16th

2020 Jack Bionda Shootout Registration

July 17-19th




Thanks for registering for our summer program.  Attached you will see your team, time and date for the next three weeks on the Team Assignment attachment. *please note there are multiple tabs for each age group. If you don't see you players name please let me know ASAP!

Please read the information with your player carefully. 

IMPORTANT:  The covid screening questions need to be done before every practice.  In the Return to play document there is a QR code that you scan with your camera and it will take you to the form.

Here are some answers to the questions we have received over the following days

The next three weeks will be the same date and time with 10 kids per group. Your group may have fewer than 10 players, as we had to balance the numbers in that cohort to create even numbers per group.  With that said, it was extremely difficult to make these groups work, as we had to take into consideration many factors.


You will require a stick, helmet, and gloves for this three-week period, as it will be skills and drills with minimal contact. Consider these three weeks a mini-training camp for preparation in Phase 2 (beginning July 5) when we can begin games and scrimmages.  There is a possibility that you will change teams (including day and time) when that occurs and may require more equipment.


The game format for Phase 2  will be house league and range from 3X3 to 7X7 depending upon the number of players per cohort.  It is a lacrosse program, with elements of both field and box, and we will keep you informed whenever the OLA provides more information with respect to field and box. According to the latest OLA return to play guidelines, there is a possibility of playing other centers based upon provincial health metrics, but there has been nothing definitive yet. 


Thanks for becoming a Hawk.  It is a great experience with a rich tradition of successful players and coaches.


If you have any questions please reach out to myself Keri, Gus or Clayton

Hawks Update:  March 11th

The Hawks would have been taking flight very soon if this were a normal season, but it is not! We are committed as your executive to getting sticks back in your hands. We know there remains many variables because of covid-19 pandemic. 

The OLA has just released their “Return to Action” guidelines for the 2021 season. I would like everyone to know that your organization is working hard on a plan to offer the best possible lacrosse programs in Box and Field for 2021, while following all health & safety measures to keep our members safe. We cannot be 100% on what the season will look like at this point. What we do know is things can change quickly during the pandemic and we are ready to adapt to whatever that might be.

We are continuing to discuss/plan different ways of returning to play, not only in our organization but possibly in our zone too. We are looking at a competitive house league program with game play and some travel for both box and field for the 2021 season.  We do not have a definitive date as to when programming will start. Registration will be coming soon in April.

Please note that we will need a lot of extra volunteers to make this season possible. 

We will update everyone in the coming weeks. Rest assured we are working hard to get the Hawks back on the floor playing the game we all love.

Thank you for all your support and patience.

Box Lacrosse Program Survey

 Huntsville Minor Lacrosse

Update as of June 12,2020


We held out hope, but with great sadness we must post the cancellation of the 2020 box season. We want to thank our families, players, and sponsors for your patience through this pandemic. 

As a club, we are all disappointed but hold out hope that we can provide some sort of training or field development program through the late summer months when it is safe to do so.  The OLA is working on a return to play plan for the next lacrosse opportunity in which we can all safely participate.

With the cancellation of our box program, we will be offering refunds or 2021 credits to you. If you would like a credit for the 2021 season please notify Keri Black (treasurer). If your mailing address may have changed please let us know.  Cheques will be mailed to the addresses on your Sportzsoft accounts (registration site). Please be patient as this process will take some time. 

We hope all our Hawks families are staying safe and healthy.

Keep your sticks in your hands we will be back!

Borrow this book from HDMLA to learn more about lacrosse!

Lacrosse has been a central element of Indigenous cultures for centuries, but once non-Indigenous players entered the sport, it became a site of appropriation – then reclamation – of Indigenous identities. The Creator's Game focuses on the history of lacrosse in Indigenous communities from the 1860s to the 1990s, exploring Indigenous–non-Indigenous relations and Indigenous identity formation. While the game was being appropriated in the process of constructing a new identity for the nation-state of Canada, it was also being used by Indigenous peoples to resist residential school experiences, initiate pan-Indigenous political mobilization, and articulate Indigenous sovereignty. This engaging and innovative book provides a unique view of Indigenous self-determination and nationhood in the face of settler-colonialism.  


Huntsville Hawks

The Objectives of the HDMLA are:

5) promote and enhance instructions, displays and exhibits of lacrosse skills
