The Mighty Hawks is a soccer team aimed at athletes with special needs. The reason it was created was to give a chance for children with special needs to participate in soccer. In February of 2017 the Board of Directors of The St-Lazare Hudson Soccer Club (seeing that there is a lack of services of this type in the area) decided to launch the development of the program. After consulting with Special Olympics Quebec, The Mighty Hawks became the newest member of the SLHSC and Special Olympics Families.
