ABOUT HAWKSBASKETBALL

HAWKSBASKETBALL ASSOCIATION, INC. is a non-profit organization (Oct.04') and is now going into our 10th year!!! The program was started in 1994 by Bob Gaydos and has grown each year. Since our inception we have maintained our goal to provide High School varsity basketball players with a high level of competition and a "Pre-Season" to their regular season. In 2002, we added a "FALL-BALL CLASSIC" & SPRING-SLAMFEST Girl's Varsity program and both were a huge success. We also kicked off the Boy's Varsity Summer League (SUMMER-SLAMFEST) in 2003 and it was fantastic! We expect the same success as we have had in the past with the "FALL-BALL CLASSIC".

NOTE: This year we are changing gears and during the Spring-Slam Fest we will be inviting AAU teams to our Spring League! 17u/15u girls and 15u/13u boys! Spring-SlamFest Info

Without question, the "FALL-BALL CLASSIC" has become the best high school varsity league in the tri-state area and since we (East Coast) have the best basketball in the country, we can say that
HAWKSBASKETBALL has "The Best Varsity Basketball Leagues On The Planet." The Girl's Varsity SPRING-SLAMFEST & Boys Varsity SUMMER-SLAMFEST are already making waves in the state with our top tier competition.

Boys and Girls players and teams that have participated are from local and other area high schools such as Woodbridge, Edison, 2003 Group III NJSIAA State Champion Franklin Warriors, East Brunswick, Colonia, 2004 NJSIAA State Sectional (Central Group II) Champion, New Brunswick HS, Marist (Bayonne), JP Stevens, JF Kennedy, Carteret, Sayreville, 2004 Somerset County Champions Bridgewater HS, Somerset, Old Bridge, St. Joe's (Metuchen), Immaculata, Piscataway, Roselle, Roselle Catholic, Linden, Rahway, Elizabeth, Scotch Plains, Chatham, Bishop Ahr, Old Bridge, 2003 Middlesex County Champion Cardinal McCarrick, Jersey City, 2004 Group IV NJSIAA State Sectional (North) Champion Plainfield HS, Newark, Holmdel, South Brunswick, 2004 Middlesex County Champion South Plainfield HS, Watchung Hills, North Hunterdon, Hunterdon Central and Perth Amboy. A lot of our players have gone onto Div. I, II & III programs over the past few years.

HAWKSBASKETBALL has grown each year. Over the past few years, many Division I,II & III college coaches and scouts have been in our stands. In fact, college scouts and coaches, and sports recruiting services are in attendance at our games regularly! They are very excited about the league and the level of play.

A stat that is amazing is that over the last two years, over 79% of the teams that play in the HAWKSBASKETBALL Leagues have qualified to play in the NJSIAA State Tournament!

HAWKSBASKETBALL is definitely a league to be in if you want to be seen. Now on any given night there could be a Division I coach/scout in the stands! Division II/III schools are represented almost every night.

In 2002/03, we added the Girl's Varsity Division "FALL-BALL CLASSIC"/SPRING-SLAMFEST. Teams included have been from: Woodbridge, Colonia, JF Kennedy (Iselin), 2003 & 2004 Middlesex County Champion and 2004 NJSIAA North II, Group IV State Champions JP Stevens Lady Hawks, Old Bridge, 2004 NJSIAA Central Group I Champions Middlesex HS, Edison, East Brunswick, Roselle Catholic, 2003 NY State Parochial Runner-Up St. John Villa's (Staten Island), Perth Amboy, South Plainfield, Immaculata, St. Peter's (Staten Island), Linden, Sayreville, Bishop Ahr, Cardinal McCarrick, South Plainfield and Spotswood. First year action was great and very competitive. It will only get better!
