Team Info:The 2019 Hawks GOLD 8U - Obrycki team will be this years "Developmental Squad". The team will be made up of players that range for age 6 through 8 years of age. The purpose of this team is to work with the players early to help generate good habits, before bad habits happen. We have been training a developmental team for the past three years. The players that have participated in this concept have had a significant advantage starting in their true 8U season.This squad will play a much lighter scheduled then the rest of teh organization due to their age. They will play in less tournaments due to their age and as a result the HG tuition for this developmental team is less expensive than the normal HG tuition.The team will play against 8U teams and the purpose will be to get the live game experience now using this season as a spring board to their travel baseball experience.Contact Dave Piesko (810) 533-0418 or @ hawksgold@outlook.com for more information.

Team Info:There will be two (2) 8U Hawks GOLD teams in 2019. Both teams will receive the same "top shelf" training that the entire HG organization receives. This training and instruction separates HG from all other organizations. The coaching, training and instruction your player will receive will put them in a unique position to accelerate in baseball. The Hawks GOLD organization was voted as a "Top 100" program in the nation. With 30,000 baseball teams in the USA this is quite an accomplishment. This rating is due to the culture HG creates with positive coaching, 2nd to none training and instruction and impressive results on the field. HG earned a 1st place finish at every age group in the KVBSA league in the 2018 season. As a program, our teams won 5 state championship titles (8U, 9U, 10U, 11U & 13U) and 5 National Championship titles (8U, 10U & 11U). Several HG teams are rated the top team in the state of Michigan and many of our teams are rated in the "Top 10" in the country. We believe that our player development program effectiveness can be measured by the success we have on the field. Train, Prepare, Succeed!

This training and instruction separates HG from all other organizations. The coaching, training and instruction your player will receive will put them in a unique position to accelerate in baseball. The Hawks GOLD organization was voted as a "Top 100" program in the nation according to "Youth Baseball Magazine". With 30,000 baseball teams in the USA this is quite an accomplishment. This rating is due to the culture HG creates with positive coaching, 2nd to none training and instruction and impressive results on the field. HG earned a 1st place finish at every age group in the KVBSA league in the 2018 season. As a program, our teams won 5 state championship titles (8U, 9U, 10U, 11U & 13U) and 5 National Championship titles (8U, 10U, 11U & 12U).
