News and Announcements

The Halton Hawks have been hosting our May Classic for over ten years, and it has become a much loved and desired tournament. With over 45 teams scheduled to play in 2020, the Hawks were looking forward to our best tournament yet.

We would all love nothing more than to be cheering on our daughters on a sunny, warm weekend in May. Unfortunately, with the continued State of Emergency in both Halton Hills and all of Ontario, we are a long way from a return to busy ball diamonds.

With the health of all players, coaches, and families as top priority for the Halton Hawks, we have made the hard decision to cancel the Halton Hawks 2020 May Classic. All teams that have registered and paid will be refunded in full by May 22, 2020. We are looking forward to hosting everyone for the May Classic 2021!

Stay safe and healthy and we hope to see everyone on a diamond this season. If you have any questions, please reach out.

Stay Safe,

Along with everyone else we are watching the situation closely and support the need for social distancing. We have suspended all activity within our association and are ensuring our parents, players and coaches understand that in order for us to get back on the field, this break is the best for all. Stay safe and healthy everyone.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Softball Ontario has made the decision to cancel the program for the 2020 season. JD and Intermediate umpires who umpired in 2019, will be able to register with Softball Ontario to maintain their "carded’ status for 2020.

Please see the attached document.

Registered participants in our clinic will receive a full refund.

For more information, please reach out to Softball Ontario.

The Halton Hawks Girls Fastpitch Association is working to ensure that public safety continues to be our top priority for our players, coaches, volunteers and families. In light of the recent events and the prevailing public approach to controlling the COVID-19 virus, we are proactively suspending all softball activities for our travel teams that are currently running off season training until Sunday April 5th.
We will be proactive in informing everyone of the plans beyond that date, once we have better line of sight on the status of the pandemic.
Be safe and continue to review the public information updates from the relevant health authorities for our region, province and country.
