Beginning in the fall of 2014, the Hamburg Hawks have partnered with the Harborcenter and their staff to enhance the development of our players. All of our Travel and Girls teams will have the opportunity to participate in this partnership. Partnering with the Harborcenter and their Academy of Hockey will provide a new learning and training experience for our players and coaches. Each team will have at least one session at the Harborcenter that is age and level specific. Teams will work with the staff from the Harborcenter to focus on individual team needs. Our coaches will be on ice with the Academy Staff learning and developing along with the players. This is a true partnership and not just sending players off to a clinic. It develops the whole team. If more availability opens up to secure more sessions at the Harborcenter, we will look to open the program to more teams in our association. Harborcenter staff includes former NHL players Kevin Adams, Martin Biron and Adam Mair. Link for information about the Harborcenter Academy of Hockey
