Still waiting for an answer why Hawks don't play in 2025. I am tired of the holdback debate, but there is no debate that (a) they win all their games against local teams by big margins; (b) they have no respect for those teams.

If I were running the Hawks 2026 team, I would have them play Elite national teams (Lax Black, Tigers, etc) but play 2025 in Hoco and local tournaments so they were challenged each week. Might be less fun for the Dads, but would be in the players' best interest.

Can a Hawks Dad explain why they don't do that?
