About


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:

 

Dale GraystonDale Grayston - Head Coach

A native of Shellbrook, Head Coach Dale Grayston has been with the Blackhawks for 21 years. As one of the most respected AAA coaches in Canada, Coach Grayston successes can be seen both on and off the ice. Under the guidance of Grayston, numerous Beardy Blackhawks have gone onto careers in Junior and professional hockey. In addition, many more have become successful, well respected people in their communities. Developing both the person and the hockey player is a value followed closely by Coach Grayston. As a former educator and a long time student of the game, Grayston attends coaching symposiums throughout Canada to broaden his knowledge of hockey. It is this commitment to excellence from the Head Coach that makes the Beardys Blackhawks a highly respected and successful hockey program.

 

Mel Parenteau - Manager

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.
