Hawks is a division focusing on a higher level of competitive baseball. Hawks teams play travel tournaments throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons. Players in this division must be selected by the approved coaching staff each fall and spring. Players are typically selected by open tryouts, but tryouts are only held when a new team is being formed or an existing team has open positions. Hawks players do not participate in the recreational divisions. The Hawks teams have rigorous training and travel demands. They practice several days a week and participate in many competitive tournaments throughout the season.
The number and age level of Hawks teams varies from season to season depending on the level of player interest and the availability of qualified coaches. Any coach wishing to form a new Hawks team must have prior experience coaching within the HYAA system.
