|New! 2017 Ohio Hawks GOLD Program|
Beginning in the fall of 2016 the
Ohio Hawks will establish a Gold
program to enhance and provide better
college recruiting scholarship opportunities
for our players. As such, we will
be fielding a Gold team at each
recruiting year. In the past four
years, we have helped placed 68
Hawks into college softball programs,
20 at the Division I level.
We currently have 11 players signed or verbally committed to Division 1 programs this season in our organization. We have 14 additional players playing now that we anticipate accepting offers by the end of the fall season. DI schools where Hawks players are currently playing or are signed are: University of Kentucky, Charleston Southern (2), University of Louisiana-Monroe, St. Peters, Tennessee State (2), Morehead State, Marshall, Ohio University (2), Winthrop, Bowling Green, University of Toledo, Miami of Ohio, University Tennessee - Martin, University of Dayton, and Wright State.
Requirements for Gold team players will be as follows: Players will take hitting lessons on a regular basis from either Coach Hutchinson, Coach Lenos, or an approved outside hitting instructor. Pitchers will work on a regular basis with an approved pitching coach. Players will be required to participate in speed, strength and agility programs during the off-season. Players will engage in regular contact with schools for their recruiting advancement and attend camps all fall and winter.
Additionally, Ohio Hawks Gold designated teams will play in 3-4 fall showcases from the following: Stingrays, Diamond 9 Orlando, Scenic City TN, Circle City, IN, Fall Brawl, Atlanta Legacy, Triple Crown and others.
We will establish an aggressive summer schedule designed to promote player recruiting and player development and growth. Summer tournaments/showcases to include the Dayton Metro, Scenic City, Atlanta Legacy, ASA Hall of Fame, Pennsbury Showcase, Demarini Showcase, Stingrays, ASA Gold Qualifiers.
Our 18u teams goal will be to qualify and play in the ASA 18u Gold tournament. All other Gold teams will go to the ASA/USA tournament for their age group.
The following are the established Gold teams for 2017:
2016/17 – Ohio Hawks Gold – Lenos
2017/18 – Ohio Hawks Gold - Hutchinson
2019 – ’00 Ohio Hawks Gold – Lenos
2020 – ’01 Ohio Hawks Gold – Wagner
2021 – ’02 Ohio Hawks Gold – Newton
2022 – ’03 Ohio Hawks Gold – Rubal
We will continue to have teams within the organization that are not designated as Gold but will play at a very high level and have success with player recruiting. At the younger ages we will have teams designated as Gold that will be in training to step into our 14u program as soon as they are eligible. They will have higher training requirements and schedule designed to prepare them for their 14u Gold year.
Coach AJ Young will be heading up our 12u Gold team - they have already begun to sign some very talented players - reach out to him for a tryout schedule at CoachYoung@Ohiohawks.com. Coach Dave Mackintosh will be heading up our 10u Gold development team. Both teams will be playing in the ASA/USA Nationals next year. Contact Dave at CoachMackintosh@ohiohawks.com
