Hawkings Field Facility Upgrades, Including New Turf


Throughout Canada, Field Hockey is a very tight knit community. We pride ourselves on cooperation, integrity and a strong passion for the game. We are supportive of our members and encourage development of all aspects of the game: playing, umpiring, coaching and managing. Field hockey is a true example of sport for life; in Alberta, our athletes range in age from 5 to 75!. It is our duty and pleasure to create and implement an atmosphere where our athletes, coaches, umpires, officials, and managers thrive.

Hawkings Field is entirely unique! It is the only field hockey specific, water-based turf in the prairie region. Because of this, athletes come from near and far to get a taste of the type of surface which Olympians play on. Over 1300 members of Field Hockey Alberta play on Hawkings Field. Hundreds of high school and provincial athletes have competed for a championship at this field. Though the glory days for the surface of Hawkings Field are now behind it, the athletes who step foot on it are in the prime of their life. We need to make sure these two match up, to create the best possible environment for our aspiring athletes. With current state of the deteriorating turf, we are less likely to attract national or international tournaments. The new turf will bring back that opportunity, and will give Alberta's athletes a home field advantage. Hawkings Field is booked solid during the three playable outdoor seasons. Thousands of athletes practice and play on this turf. They not only improve their field hockey skills, but they socialize, set new goals, and dream of someday scoring that winning goal! Having a beautiful new turf to call their own would stimulate those opportunities, and give new life to Hawkings Field once again. Any donation is an amazing gift to thousands of field hockey athletes and enthusiasts across the province, and will allow the sport to continue to flourish and expand in Alberta. On behalf of the University of Calgary, thank you for your support!
