Hawks coaches get some pro training from Little League Canada's National Coach!
Almost every one of our 11 Greely Hawks coaches took time out of their busy lives to take in some intense 4-hour coach training from the infamous Al Herback, Little League Canada's National Coach who was brought in from Calgary by our league!
It was fantastic to see so many of our coaches there --- more than any other association! It's cool that they're so devoted to learning how to teach our 50 Hawks players the right way to play the game of baseball, as well as the game of life.
Al's first such clinic was in 1972 -- so he's been teaching coaches like us for over 40 years!!!
Thanks again to all our coaches for coming out and representing our Hawks so well, it's much appreciated!

Major, Junior, Senior and Big League Greely Hawks teams are raring to go!
As you'll see in our 2013 Spring rosters that are now posted in the left side-bar menu, our Major (11-12 yo), Junior (13-14) and Senior (15-16) Hawks are completely full and ready to go! Our Big League (17-18) team has enough players to officially have a team, and is very close to being full, but another player or two may be added if there's still room.

Our Greely Hawks really are MAJOR Champs!
After successfully defending their Pinecrest Tournament Major Championship a few weeks ago, Rick Lafrance's squad were really riding some great momentum going into the Carleton-Russell Little League Spring Playoffs!
Greely finished in 2nd place in the regular season which pitted them against the strong Embrun team in the Semi-Finals earlier this week. Facing one of the league's best pitchers, our Hawks were on fire as they had plenty of hits along with some superb pitching en route to a solid 9-4 win. In the other Semi-Final between the two Casselman teams, there was a pretty big upset as the top seed team were knocked out for their chance to be in the Finals.
On Championship Sunday hosted by our Hawks organization in Greely, the morning Consolation Game saw the top seed Casselman #2 dispose of the Embrun team in convincing fashion. Then in the afternoon, it was the final battle everyone was waiting to see – Casselman #1 lead by the CRLL Aces head coach/manager Geoff Séguin against our Greely Hawks lead by Geoff's Aces assistant coach Rick Lafrance.
Our Hawks starting pitcher, Jeremie Goyer, had extra incentive going into this showdown as he's actually from Casselman and had the chance to win a Championship against many of his old teammates and coaches. And Jeremie didn't disappoint as he only allowed 1 run over 5 solid innings while striking out MANY batters! This game was tight for a few innings as the Casselman starting pitcher was strong too, but our Hawks managed to squeak out 3 runs over his 4+ innings, then Greely exploded for 4 runs in the 5th inning making the score 7-1 going into the last inning. Long-time Hawk, Michael Armstrong, pitched for Greely in that last inning and he and his teammates were able to seal the win and the Championship!
Congrats to all our Hawks players and coaches seen in the photo: Colby Schroeder, Michael Armstrong, Braedan Charbonneau, Will Keon, Ben Halpern, Owen Charbonneau, Devon Poirier, Tyler Preston, Ryan Lafrance, Jeremie Goyer, Lucien Hartell, and Johnny Hindriksen along with coaches Rick Lafrance, Dale Poirier, and Ernie Schroeder. Missing from the photo and weekend was veteran Hawks player Payton Melvin but he contributed a lot to the team's success this season.
Our Minor Hawks didn't get the win in the Final, but played their best game of the season!
Our 3rd place Minor Hawks kind of limped into the playoffs as they struggled down the stretch after a strong start to their season. But head coach/manager Marc Seaman was thrilled with how his boys came together in their 2 playoff games!
First, in the Semi-Final against the favoured Russell team, our Hawks squeaked out the upset victory which vaulted them to the Championship Game against the powerhouse 1st-place Casselman team. It was pretty cool to see both the Minor and Major Championship Games being played side by side on our diamonds both pitting Greely against Casselman for league supremacy!
This Minor Final game was also a pitching duel as Greely's ace pitcher all season, David Denis, was battling pitch-for-pitch against Casselman's excellent hurler. The game was very tight for a few innings with Casselman holding a slight 2-1 advantage, but then a couple of fortunate Casselman hits found holes and plated 3 more runs and our Hawks tried hard and had their chances, but couldn't manage another run.
After the game, coach Marc said that it was his team's best game of the season and wishes they had played like that all season long, it was a joy for him to be a part of that game with his team.
One more thing our Minor Hawks can be proud of is they won the team Running Relay Race portion of our Skills Competition! They were very exciting races and it was fun to see our host team come out on top!
Congrats to all our Minor Hawks players and coaches: Zach Bush, Owen Seaman, David Denis, Jack Armstrong, Jack Wallace, Tyler Boyd, Zachary Cape, Ryan Carolan, Jayden Haight, Cameron Hutchinson, Jack Karran, Colin Nisbet, Jakob Vriend and Samuel Karran along with coaches Marc Seaman, Todd Bush and Tristan Timm.
Thanks again to all our terrific volunteers, especially Christine Halpern & Karen Crotty-Charbonneau!
Once again our baseball day hosted by our Greely Hawks organization went off without a hitch, and it's thanks in large part to our very appreciated volunteers! First and foremost, a very special thanks once again goes to two of our Hawks' Executives Christine Halpern (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Karen Crotty-Charbonneau(email@example.com) who work so hard before, during and after these events to bring all the fun to our kids!

Thanks also to volunteers Louis Armstrong, Lorne Hartell, Paul Charbonneau, Colin & Marie José Timm, Wendy Wallace, Diane Charlebois, Dave Halpern, Wayne Beaton, Karen & Ed Hindriksen, Jen Vriend, Jen Haight, along with our Senior Hawks Tristan Timm, Eric Bekkers, Cam Lafrance and Ryan Gill. We would also like to thank all of you from our Greely Hawks family who generously donated many food and drink items for our canteen, as well as the Greely Firefighters for kindly lending us their BBQ. And last but certainly not least, thanks to our umpires for the day – Marc Lalonde, Eric Bekkers, Kenny Beaton and Gab Lafrance – you all did a great job!
A sincere thanks to all of you, we really appreciate it! – Kim & Craig Richer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
