News and Announcements
I want to thank all the girls for showing their Falcon Pride all weekend. Special thanks for the leadership shown by Lauren and Sammie throughout the tournament and for the relentless effort of the junior players: Katie, Anna, Bailey , Elise and Abby.
Tsawwassen Falcons Field Hockey Club is exciting to announce that 5 of our Club players have been selected to the BC Team in their respective age category. They will be going through a rigorous training schedule that has started last week and it will culminate in July/August at the National Championships in Calgary Alberta. Attached is the picture of the five players and their names in clockwise order from the top left are: Brendan Guraliuk U18, Rowen Childs U18, Chase Marshall U15, Eve Corrothers U15, and Amrita Bains U15. A great accomplishment for the players and the Falcons Club. Well done you guys! See you at the Awards night June 16, 2016, 6:30pm.
Canada advances to the tournament final against Argentina on Saturday (2:30pm PT/5:30pm ET). The game will be a rematch of the 2015 Pan American Games men’s final when Canada’s senior men lost out to the Argentines on home soil.

Please come and help us pay tribute to Graeme Carswell at our Annual Awards Night Dinner June 16th at Beach Grove Golf Course, at 7pm (doors open at 6:30pm). This year in honour of Graeme, the Falcons and Carswell family, will be awarding one player from the club who best exemplifies the character and courage of Graeme Carswell. The award will be accompanied by a 500$ bursary to put towards their field hockey future. In the families words, the award is described as follows:
The Graeme Gordon Carswell “Follow Your Dreams” Award is given to a student who exhibits a passion for life emulating the manner set by Graeme. Graeme’s family and many friends spoke of the virtues by which Graeme conducted his entire life. We feel that a young person who shows similar traits, is worthy of recognition. In particular we’re considering a person who will:
1. Follow their dreams.
2. Live their passions.
3. Always be kind.
4. Be a positive example for their team-mates in whatever sport they play.
5. Be self-less, humble, spontaneous, modest, charismatic and have a sense of humour.
6. Appreciate and love music.
7. Have compassion and respect for others.
8. Give their time freely to mentor younger people.
9. Be genuine.
10. Make a difference.
We hope that this token of recognition will help you follow dreams!
If you’d like to be part of the dinner & tribute we’d ask that you make a small donation to the fund in lieu of paying for a dinner ticket. The Falcons thank you and so do the Carswells.
