The Hawkettes are an all-female ice hockey team from the Hawks Ice Hockey Club. The team was formed in 2016 and is made up of 18 female players and an additional 5 development players who train Tuesday nights at the Cockburn Ice Arena. The Hawkettes play in the WA Ice Hockey League in Division 3 against other teams mainly comprising of men. The team started the year strong with three wins, contributed by the commitment and efforts of all players over the months leading up to the start of the season with team building activities, on and off ice training, utilising the leadership and skill sets within the team to become self-sufficient in working together and creating a positive environment that supports each other and the development of women within the sport of ice hockey.
Value to the Community
The Hawkettes are a role model team for all aspiring female players. Ice hockey is a male dominated sport, and our existence is critical in showing that females can not only play ice hockey, but excel at it. Our players give back to the community via coaching and helping at grass roots programs (e.g. Juanita and Sydney), where we work with young players ages 5-11 up to adults. Our players also volunteer their time annually to support the girls hockey open day (e.g Cara, Rebecca, Alicia), which is an international event aimed at encouraging more females to enter the sport. The Hawkettes team provides local female players further leadership development through their involvement in the team and the club as well as building life-long friendships that contribute the well being of our players and community.
Why the funds are needed
The Hawkettes are a new team, and do not yet have a uniform. The money received would go into purchasing a set of high quality jerseys, which we hope will last the club 6-10 years. The jerseys will be owned by the club, which means they are to be used and enjoyed by all female players who join and train with the club.
