One of the GBG Northeast Hawks' highlights of 2021 came on a day when not a single member of the program donned a Hawks jersey.
It came in early July when Xaverian Brothers, a Massachusetts a high school team that had GBG Northeast Hawks starting at seven of the nine positions, clinched the MIAA Division 1 state championship with a win over Leominster. With longtime Hawks products like Northeastern commit Matthew Brinker and Bentley commit Marc Cedrone leading the way, Xaverian reaped the benefits of a GBG Northeast development program that is designed to help youth athletes as young as 9 develop their skills.
That developmental model only figures to benefit from the recent opening of a second facility GBG Hawks facility in the Foxboro/Mansfield region. After operating out of the RBI Academy in Foxboro since the program's inception in 2010, the Hawks spread their wings in September by expanding to a second facility, Mass Premier Courts, in Mansfield, Mass. That complex serves as a training ground for the program's pitchers.
Here is a look at what the GBG Northeast Hawks program has to offer for players from ages 9 to 18.
