Vancouver Hawks Organisational Review

The club has recently launched an organizational review. The purpose of the review is to systematically review what we do well, what we do less well, and what we should be doing as a club and the information we collect will be used to guide our strategic and operational priorities over the next 12 - 24 months. There will be multiple opportunities for members to provide input over the coming months - stay tuned.
More detail can be found here or by contacting president@vancouverhawks.com.

Special events

VANCOUVER HAWKS 125th ANNIVERSARY FESTIVAL - POSTPONED

Vancouver Hawks Members,

I am sorry to announce that the Vancouver Hawks 125th Festival scheduled for Saturday, April 4, 2020 is being postponed. Considering the recommendations issued by the provincial government to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have decided it will not be feasible to host a tournament in the next few weeks.

We are hoping to host it in early summer instead, so stay tuned!

Thank you!

Sarah Mills and the Vancouver Hawks 125th Festival planning committee

Volunteering

Vancouver Hawks is deeply rooted in its community and actively seeks to maintain this connection in all its endeavours. One of the most crucial ways this manifests itself is in the number and quality of our volunteers.

The Junior Spring Season is almost entirely run through volunteerism and this allows us to bring hockey to almost 1000 athletes from 3 to 18 years old. Volunteers help us with coaching, managing teams, selecting players, setting up events, organising and distributing equipment and uniforms, umpiring, mentoring and more and more and more... Please visit Volunteer Positions for a more detailed list of the volunteer positions and the amazing people who give their time.

During the senior season, too, many many volunteers give their time in order to enhance our experience as members of Hawks. Whether it is helping to organise and run tournaments, umpire games or organise social events, many more people give their time to the community. For a detailed list of these volunteers and the work they do please refer to Volunteers - Seniors.

The executive of the club, too, is made up of volunteers. Our Board Members give up their time to help guide the club forwards and continue to strengthen its place in the hockey world and in the wider community too. Please see Executive and Staff for details of our Board Members and the work they do.

If you would like to volunteer in any capacity whatsoever please let us know by emailing us at info@vancouverhawks.com - without you we cannot continue to offer such a great experience to so many athletes.

Umpiring

Umpiring

Vancouver Hawks FHC aims to promote and support umpires, from absolute beginners to FIH qualified, at all levels of competition.

Junior Season Umpiring

Boys and girls aged 13 years and above are encouraged to try umpiring in the Junior Spring Season – we are always looking for umpires. Umpiring in the Spring is fun, it allows a greater understanding of the game, and it provides an opportunity to earn money! In the 2019 Junior Spring Season, Hawks FHC ultimately created opportunities for 50 umpires, umpire-mentors and assessors.

If you are interested in umpiring in the Junior Spring Season, please email our Umpire Coordinator here
