Scrimmages Start Later this Month
The Waterloo Black Hawks open a five-week exhibition schedule on August 21st, in preparation for the 2015/16 United States Hockey League regular season.
A pair of split-squad scrimmages against the Madison Capitols in the midst of Waterloo’s orientation camp kick off the action. Slated for consecutive afternoons August 21st and 22nd, these two contests will be open to the public at no cost, however – for the second consecutive year – Black Hawks fans are encouraged contribute school supplies, which will be donated to the Waterloo Community Schools. A box for supplies will be set up at Young Arena entrances on game day.
Following a two-week layoff after orientation camp, the Hawks play four other games which were announced on Thursday, highlighted by a home matchup against the Dubuque Fighting Saints on Friday, September 11th. Admittance for this game is included with season ticket packages; single game tickets for the exhibition will be $7 and available at a future date.
