Russ spoke of his delight on his partnership with the Hawks:
“Tempest Training is very proud to be part of the prestigious Blackburn Hawks Ice Hockey Club. I have a been a massive fan of the Hawks and watched them play since I was 15 in the days of Steve Moria. Our family attends the games and our kids are huge fans. To be asked to take care of the team’s athletic development, and strength and conditioning is a massive honour and an exciting time looking ahead.
Moving forward we are looking at providing guidance and support for all the players on a team and individual basis, adopting a professional approach to match fitness, nutrition and the players’ physical development. It is a new era for the Hawks and the team here at Tempest Training endeavour to help the players achieve their optimum physical performance and fulfil their potential on the ice.
Both Declan and I are raring to go and help restore the Hawks to a force to be reckoned with.”
