Hawks Hockey Club was formed in 2024 to become a junior focused club in the Sussex, Surrey and Kent region.

Driven by the need to provide young people a dedicated hockey environment which can invest resources back in to player development, we have a modern view of how to run a hockey club and the skills to deliver.

Our Experience

Hawks Director of Hockey, Calum Giles, and Director of Coaching, Willie Marshall, have a combined hockey playing experience from three Olympics, three Commonwealth Games, a World Cup, a Champions Trophy and many UK & European club championships.

Between them, they hold coaching experience of more than 50 years at school, club, and national level.

Combining this experience with a successful leadership team previously running junior operations at elite hockey club level, they have designed and launched a junior on-field experience that will shape a strong future for Hawks Hockey Club and lead the way that others will follow.
