What’s New: This year Falcons Field Hockey Club will field 2 Men’s teams in Winter League. We will be
entering a Premiere B team, and a Competitive team and want to invite players from the U-16 and U-18 teams as well as old vets and newcomers to join us. This season will be great for personal growth for the players who commit to full-time. A chance to play with veteran players with national and provincial experience as well as years of Men’s League experience. It’s an opportunity to play all year round and hone your skills and play against a stronger group of players than you are currently used to. Teams will consist of 6-10 veteran players, 6-10 Full-time Junior players. This will be adjusted as positions are filled.
Goals: To continue the process of rebuilding a men’s program and in so doing elevate the play of our U-16 and U-18 junior players for the following Spring League. This is also a chance to further develop those players who have been invited to play in the provincial program and to start a process of elite level player development. Finally to develop the men’s program so that it supports club level players in their personal development, as coaches, players and quality social members. This club had great players at all levels and that’s what made it special to everyone involved. ( Not everyone wants to be an elite level player, some want to be social members and play good competitive hockey. A club needs all of these people to be successful and grow. )

2013 U11 girls Falcon Chicks had an amazing season. They finished 1st in Tier 1. With an undefeated league record of 6 /0 /3 and 0 /1 /3 record in the U12 tier 1 Club Championship. That is 6 /1 / 6. Wow!!!!

Congratulations to the Falcons U14 Thunder. After going undefeated in round robin play, with no goals against, the Thunder lost a hard fought championship game 2-0 to a talented Cowichan team. Well done girls! Your parents and coaches are very proud of you. You have represented the Falcons Club with pride.
This weekend the U12 Boys finish the India Club tournament undefeated, beating India Clun 2 – 0 in their final game. After a growth season that started out with United brothers and several other experienced tier 1 teams beating Falcons handily, the boys were able to pull the season together initially at the club championships only losing once on the day but raising there game to another level for this weekends India Tournament. While it was a team effort there were some great individual efforts worth mentioning. Kennedy Brown showed that he is the best goalie in the division, and considering that this was his first season playing he has a very good head start on his own the group at this age. Chase Marshall was near perfect through midfield creating scoring chance after scoring chance through his distribution skills. Matias was instrumental in driving the ball down the left and attacking the D. Darcy Ma and Dominic were rock steady at the back stopping most of the chances that came into our end. Finall, Simon Hawke setup and scored some key goals to get the team over the hump. His all out effort in every game was the difference to push us over the hump and make us a winning team not just a competitive team.
Other mentions: Sam scored winner against Abbotsford and filled in as goalie for Kennedy saving many key chances that kept the opposition off the score sheet. Charlie Jake and Aaron were integral to keeping pressure on the opposition D forcing them to give up several key corners.
