SENIOR PROGRAMS

WELCOME TO THE VANCOUVER HAWKS SENIOR PROGRAMS

Vancouver Hawks Field Hockey Club is one of Canada’s oldest sporting organizations celebrating our 125th anniversary in 2020. We have 13 senior Men's and Women's Field Hockey teams playing in the Greater Vancouver Men's and Women's Field Hockey Leagues. Our Club has proudly supplied many Provincial and National team members, including five on the current men's team and one on the women's team.

Registration & Fees

The season starts the first week of September and ends the last week of March (there is no field hockey in December).

This year the board voted to keep your fees the same as last year. The $10 capital fund fee has also been removed as this was designated to pay for the changing rooms at Hamber. Please note that the late fee of $50 will be in effect as of August 17, 2019. 

The Hawks new Kukri uniform store is now online.  On our website you can purchase the regular uniform gear in addition to the optional Hawks 125th anniversary crested jerseys. Visit the Hawks Online Store

Ceri Cornwall

"I started playing field hockey at age 12, much against my will as I “thought" that I preferred swimming.  Bullied into a team sport, played outside mainly in the rains of North Yorkshire, I grew to love the game. I am astounded to say that over 40 years later I’m still playing!  The occasional swim still sometimes occurs on the slightly damp fields of now, The North Shore, but the move from the grassy knolls of Yorkshire to the lush turf of Vancouver keeps my love of field hockey alive and well... New for this year is Umpiring 😉 Ceri is the person to contact at ceri.cornwall@gmail.com for social/competitive league hockey!"

Rolf Sickmuller

Rolf has been dribbling (rather clumsily) and whacking (rather erratically) a hockey ball since he was able to tie his shoelaces (no idea when that was, but it was certainly pre-velcro). He joined the Vancouver Hawks in 1991 and has since played on a number of teams in various divisions, still seeking the perfect placement. Rolf has, in recent years, played with the Hawks B and C teams.
Rolf can be contacted at sickmuller@envirowest.ca
