Wildhawk History

Wildhawk Basketball began in 1994 with only 3 Select Teams totaling 35 participants. The House League was launched the following year in September of 1995 and featured four divisions with a total of 180 players.


As with all other sports in the Region of Waterloo, gym availability was at a premium. As a result, the Wildhawks flew between several sites in the early years. The travelling road show finally found a permanent home at St. David Catholic Secondary School in 1997. However, with the House League continuing to grow on a yearly basis, it soon became apparent a larger facility would be required.


This growth resulted from the commitment and dedication of numerous volunteer coaches. Their enthusiasm and knowledge created a popular learning environment for the players. With the completion of RIM Park in October of 2001, came the opportunity to relocate to a state-of-the-art facility. This facility features the only 4 court gymnasium in the Province and boasts over 26,000 sq. feet of Nike hardwood flooring.

About The Director

 

Wildhawk Basketball was founded by Dave Mac Neil in April of 1994. With his previous experience as an Assistant Coach at both the University of Guelph and the University of Waterloo, Dave realized that there was a need to create a program based on skill development for the youth of the Waterloo Region. Having also coached at numerous camps in the United States, Dave incorporated many of the ideas used at these venues into a format that still exists today.
