ASSESSMENTS - ROUND TWO
We are pleased to announce our final assessment for all prospective Vancouver Hawks players.
While attendance at this assessment is not required, we strongly encourage all players to attend a final assessment. If you have not attended an assessment session this summer, attendance at the appropriate August session for your skill level is the only way to inform the proper preliminary team placement for you/your player, particularly if you/they are new to our Women’s teams.

For Premier, Division 1, and Division 2 players, the final opportunity for an assessment will be August 24, 9 - 10:30 pm at Hamber.

For Division 3 to Division 7 players, the final opportunity for an assessment will be August 26, 6 - 8 pm at Hamber. 

 


 

Returning, New, and Prospective Hawks Senior Women,

We are pleased to announce a comprehensive series of assessments for our 2022/23 senior teams, and we ask that every player who wishes to play in the senior league in 2022/23 attend at least one session. If you are unable to attend any of the appropriate sessions for any reason please complete the Statement of Intent form so that we can factor you in to our team planning. We will have further opportunity in August to place you, however, this will make things harder for your coaches, teammates, and the club so please do your best to attend.

These assessments will be overseen by our Head Coach, Matt Sarmento. Each session will have coaches from the relevant divisions plus independent assessors present, and teams will be formed based on some of the following criteria (not in order):

  • Previous coach’s evaluation
  • Performance at assessment session(s)
  • Social fit
  • Other

SESSION DETAILS
Players are to self-select which session(s) they are suited to attend, and you may attend as many as you wish:

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
