As an affiliate of Baseball NSW we are invited to provide Representative Teams and Development Teams to compete against all other Sydney Associations.
All teams have experienced Coaches assisting them to develop their existing skills.
Competitions vary across all ages starting with -
The Rookie Cup – Under 10s
This is a gala day held during the season on a Sunday. Teams are selected by trial process. It is an excellent starting point to encourage young Hawks to develop their talent further.
State Cup & Development Cup for Under 12s & Under 14s & 16s (Youth League)
The Competition is held from September and concludes in December. Games are played on Sundays and do not clash with normal Club competitions. In order to prevent injury, specific rules are in place to limit pitching and catching.
Junior Hawks Girl Representatives Under 13s & 15s
This competition provides opportunities for Girls to compete at a higher level and is a gala day concept.
Trials are held in Winter and a specific development program is in place to ensure players reach the standard necessary to compete effectively. This development program concludes with the ever populare Gala days held in the Central Coast (Coasties Cup) and the Tamworth Cup. It is a great way to celebrate the end of Winter.
