Screech Our Mascot

Screech joined the Jr Blackhawks in 2017 and was immediately a hit with everyone including the opposing teams!

He brings a positive attitude to every game and even causes some mischief every so often just to keep things entertaining.

Be on the lookout on game day as you never know if he will be circulating in the stands, be on the sideline throwing his own flag on the Ref's or cheering with the cheerleaders.
