NS Hawks Update - Spring Opponents Confirmed

Steve, Edwin and I went to the seeding meeting today with all of the other U8 teams in the YSSL.  Long story short, it was an interesting experience.  In the end, I believe that the league was successful in aligning the divisions based on team's abilities to the best that they could.  Here are the final results.

The NS Hawks were moved up to division 2 (up from division 4).  While that is good news, our opponents' home fields are much farther away than what we had in the Fall. They are as follows:

Division 2 Location
Chicago Magic City Chicago South
Chicago Magic PNA Des Plaines
Palatine Celtic A Palatine
Fox Valley Bayern Munich Carpentersville
NS Hawks Evanston
VH Cougars Vernon Hills

Good thing that 4 of the 8 Spring games will take place at St Joan.  The schedule will be set on March 16th and all changes must be final by March 30th without any financial penalty. 

This is a collection of some very good teams who are well coached.  While they are teams that should be respected, please remember that the Hawks are fresh off a division championship.  Our boys will be good enough to compete at this level. 

Spring is right around the corner.  Can't wait for the snow to melt so that we can get back to business.  Looking forward to a great season.  I bet you are all just thrilled to starting getting my email again.
