WHK Hawks still flying high on the ice

KINGSTON – If you haven’t experienced the arctic cold at Hobomock Rink firsthand, you might not know of a fantastic organization supporting nearly 200 children from Kingston and the surrounding south coast towns. I didn’t realize it myself until a few months ago, when my 13-year-old made the discouraging announcement that he wanted to “try hockey”.

The Whitman-Hanson Kingston Hawks Youth Hockey program is a collaboration between the cities of Whitman, Hanson and Kingston participating in the South Shore Conference. There are even players from Plympton, Halifax, Carver and East Bridgewater on the WHK list.

Consisting of multiple levels for boys and girls aged 5 to 18, including a beginner’s instructional level, the Hawks have created a very welcoming organization for players of all ages and abilities.

As I’ve learned firsthand, there’s always a place for your child, even if your son or daughter hasn’t played organized hockey in the past. In fact, on almost every team there are players who didn’t start at the youngest level but have been absorbed by the WHK program, coaches and players alike.
