Congratulations on your achievements, the Hawks are very proud of your accomplishments.
The Charleswood Hawks are pleased to announce that Kyle Nixon, formerly an assistant with the Hawks and Coach of the WHSHL Stonewall Rams has accepted the position of Coach of the Hawks. Kyle has been with the Hawks for the better part of two seasons, knows the organization, has worked with our systems and already has knowledge on our returning players. Kyle understands the game of hockey very well, is knowledgeable, dedicated and a tireless worker. Being a teacher has also helped him hone his communication skills which is critical if one is to have success coaching in today‘s world.
Assistant Coaches Adam Rath and Gavin McHale will both be back in the Hawk’s nest next season, giving the Hawks a formidable coaching staff.
In what Stephen himself declared was one of the toughest decisions he has ever had to make, he decided to step away from the Coaching ranks of the Charleswood Hawks. Stephen had given 12 years of his life to the Red, Black and White. Two as a player, 4 as an assistant coach and the last six as the Coach. Stephen had come to the fork in the road where a decision had to be made whether to continue with the Hawks or spend more quality time with his young family.
Stephen leaves with no regrets. In his 12 seasons with the Hawks, he was a member of 6 MMJHL Championship Charleswood Hawk teams. He was very dedicated to the organization and extremely passionate about his work and the game. He was a student of the game, always experimenting with ways to improve his team. Stephen understood the game well.
The Hawks want to thank Stephen for his 12 years and wish him all the very best in his future endeavours which we are positive will not take him too far from the rink.
