Remainder of Season cancelled


We recognize that our sport is a great way for our athletes to thrive. However, our responsibility is to provide a safe environment for our athletes. Given the status of the potential risks posed to both athletes and parents, the Newmarket Nighthawks have decided that it serves the players' safety to suspend our remaining 3 games.

We look forward to seeing our teams next season.

Conrad Clapperton
Newmarket Nighthawks

We hope you all have a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you back at the rink in October!!

Thanks to the Newmarket Rays Old-Timers for their Support!


On January 26th, Larry Bone (representing Newmarket Rays Old-Timers), graciously presented Bob and some Junior players with a cheque for $750 to support our teams!

On behalf of all Nighthawks families, I want to thank Larry and the Rays for their generous gift.  This is the second year the Newmarket Rays Old-Timers have supported the Nighthawks.

The Rays play on Saturdays at Magna at the same time as the Nighthawks.  Feel free to stop in and cheer on their teams!

Conrad, Bob & Terry

Hi all,  

It appears that the site ArenaMaps.com is no longer operational (suspended).  Fortunately our website has the ability to also present the arena location information using Google Maps so until further notice clicking a location link will present the Google Maps version

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays families, 

I hope everyone is getting use out of the new winter jackets on these cold days. I'd like to thank Kim MacKenzie for once again organizing our party at Boston Pizza. It looked like everyone had a great time.

Please remember that all that the gifts, parties, jerseys and tournaments will not be possible without our yearly fundraiser in February. Thank you to the families who have signed up for tickets and to volunteer their time. If you have not signed up please take a few minutes over the holidays to complete the 2 links in the email your received from your team reps.

Happy New Year
See you all back at the arena on January 4th
