Eastern Massachusetts Hawks was established in 2010 to help develop boys into young men on their lacrosse journey. Hawks takes pride in the individual coaching on the field as well as providing leadership and support off of the field.
Hawks in 2020/2021 will be taking an aggressive approach by incorporating Fall Field practice and games with a formal Box Lacrosse Program that will begin in October and end in early March. Our field lacrosse in the fall and summer will again be housed at Union Point. Our Box on Saturday mornings will take place at the South Shore Sports Center in Hingham. Our Winter positional and skills clinics will take place at the Academy in Rockland.
Our Field Program will be aimed at integrating our team and skills training into a greater number of competitive events such as scrimmages, playdays, and tournaments. We will have a fall and summer field schedule with some spring field lacrosse as well (we try not to overlap with town lax) for the Middle School and Youth Program.
Our Box Program will be working with the New England Blackwolves and will have the same approach as our field Program. We will be spending the first four to five weeks teaching the game and then work on games and tournaments along with with more training throughout the winter. We will be joining the Northeast Box Lacrosse Association (NEBLA) and working with their clubs as well as other clubs in the area. We will be joined by New England Blackwolves’ players as well as others to help you in your journey learning this new game during the year.
Our Skills Program will be run in small groups through positions and skill sets at the Academy in Rockland. The focus will be on learning the skill correctly, integrating it into smaller situations, then putting into more frequent game play with our field and box schedules. These winter skill sessions will be held during the week with some options during the weekends.
