Sports Connect will replace SI Play as Manchester Hawks Communication Portal



We have been asked by a few longstanding members why we changed to the Manchester Ravens and WE HAVE NOT.

Manchester Hawks AYF has not changed their name to the Manchester Ravens. We also have no intention of changing our mascot away from the Manchester “Hawks”.

We also are not aware of any organization with a lease agreement to use the field located at 2515 Route 571 Manchester, NJ 08759 property during our 2024 Fall Tackle Season.

If you have registered with this alternate organization and want to be part of the Manchester Hawks AYF please reach out to the “Manchester Ravens” and ask for a refund. You can also register with us on our website www.manchesterhawksayf.org/register

Our apologies for any confusion the other organization may have caused in the registration process. We are still fielding teams for all levels and accepting coaching applications.

If you would like to discuss this with us, feel free to reach out via email to president@manchesterhawksayf.org with your name and phone number and I will call at my earliest convenience.
