The Beardys Blackhawks Midget AAA Hockey Club is a benchmark for hockey in Canada. As the first and only Midget AAA hockey program in Canada operated by a First Nation, the Blackhawks demonstrate that hockey players of all backgrounds and ethnicity can play together, grow together and achieve both team and individual success together. Much of this can be attributed to exemplary Blackhawk leadership. The following is provides an overview on the Blackhawk leadership team:
As the person who works behind the scenes to help guide the Blackhawk organization, Manager Mel Parenteau is an administrative machine. A native of Prince Albert and a former Junior hockey player, Mel is respected throughout the league as a top notch manager. Through the energy and planning of Parenteau, Blackhawk players enjoy many benefits that are usually reserved for higher levels of hockey. The efforts of Mel Parenteau are one of the reasons the Beardys Blackhawks are a highly desired team to play for in Saskatchewan.
Maury started with the team in the 2016/17 season. He has extensive experience minor officiating minor hockey games in Prince Albert ranging from minor hockey city championship weekend games to Pee Wee, Bantam, and Midget AA league, playoff, and tournament games. He even boasts an international hockey game experience. He still continues to minor officiate for as many Bantam and Midget AA games in Prince Albert as his schedule allows. He is very happy to have the opportunity to work for Beardys Blackhawks and offer his experience in minor officiating to them.
