2016 Field Hockey BC Volunteer Recognition Awards

This awards event, currently in its tenth year, was designed to provide Field Hockey BC with the opportunity to recognise members of our community who have contributed endless hours of time and energy to assist the Society in delivering extended opportunities to those involved with field hockey in BC. We hope that the following voluntary recognition awards go some way to expressing our gratitude for the difference you make to our sport.

A volunteer is defined as “a person who freely offers to undertake a task”. Our field hockey community has a great many volunteers and tonight we again recognise those that have played a role in assisting our sport at a provincial, regional, and local level. Field Hockey BC hopes that the following voluntary recognition awards go some way to expressing our gratitude for the difference you make to our sport.

In the category of Governance Support, Field Hockey BC would like to recognise:

Gillian Batey

Gillian pictured with her daughter, Sloane.

It is our pleasure to recognise Gillian for her leadership role on behalf the field hockey community in British Columbia. Gillian stepped down from her role as Umpiring Director for the Field Hockey BC Board of Directors this past spring after four years in the role.

During this time, Gillian has been a central figure in driving the strategic direction and supporting structure for officiating at Field Hockey BC and in doing so, has contributed to the Society being regarded as one of the top Provincial Sport Organizations in British Columbia. Gillian has volunteered her time to mentor young and experienced umpires alike at all manner of local, regional, and national tournaments, continues to work within junior and senior leagues, and is an invaluable resource as we look to continue to improve standards in officiating across BC. It is with some sadness that we see Gillian step down from her governance role with Field Hockey BC, but we hope that this award goes some way to express our sincere gratitude for her leadership.


In the category of Event Hosting Support, Field Hockey BC would like to recognise:

Michelle Savich

There has certainly been a resurgence in field hockey activity in the Fraser Valley, none more so than at the Chilliwack Pink Panthers Field Hockey Club, under the leadership of Michelle Savich. Chilliwack Pink Panther Teams now regularly compete in all manner of events, involving both senior and junior teams.

Over the past two seasons, the Chilliwack Pink Panthers have taken point in hosting the Under 18 Girls Club Championships, and during this time club volunteers under the direction of Michelle have worked tirelessly to create a welcoming atmosphere for all teams and to ensure that the event runs smoothly, both on and off the field. It is our pleasure to recognise Michelle for her commitment and leadership, and we hope this award goes some way to thanking you for your significant voluntary efforts.


Joel King & Justin Van Der Putten

Over the last eleven years, the Jokers Field Hockey Club have partnered with Field Hockey BC in the hosting of the Vancouver International Tournament, and most significantly have managed the single most important social aspect of the event, that being the Community Beer Garden. Some might say that the running of a beer garden has some obvious merit, but the organisation and time commitment required is very significant, and that is why we would like to take this opportunity to recognise and thank both Justin and Joel for all their time in ensuring this essential service is managed in a seamless fashion.

In recognition of their commitment, it is Field Hockey BC’s pleasure to recognise Justin and Joel as voluntary award recipients this year.


In the category of Event Management, Field Hockey BC would like to recognise:

Sue Jameson

Over the last 11 years, Sue Jameson has been technical advisor, judge, officer and director for a multitude of local, regional, provincial, national, and international events across BC and Canada. Technical officiating across the World is still very much a voluntary occupation and Field Hockey BC is extremely fortunate to have a number of dedicated and extremely knowledgeable technical officials, none more so than Sue Jameson. Sue is one of a team of individuals committed to giving of their time to create a first-class environment for athletes and their coaches to play and compete. It is fitting that Sue follows other technical officials that have been honored to receive voluntary contribution awards. In fact, every one of our annual athlete, coach and official award winners this evening will have been involved in at least one event officiated under Sue’s guidance.

Words cannot express the level of due diligence and professionalism Sue brings to her voluntary role in event management, and after so many years it would be fitting to allow Sue and her husband Morley some time together during event season, but truth be told, we hope Sue will continue to give back to the sport she loves for a little while longer – Sorry Morley!

Field Hockey BC is pleased to present Sue Jameson with a 2016 Voluntary Recognition Award, in the category of Event Management.


The FHBC Community Club and League Awards – as nominated by their respective membership: 

Stan Bennett & Heather Goodman – Cowichan Field Hockey Club
(Unable to Attend)

Stan Bennett has held the position of 2nd Vice President for Cowichan Field Hockey Club for a number of years now, he is one of the junior coaches, has been directly involved in Cowichan’s indoor program for many years, he plays point in the distribution of uniforms and equipment for the club and has spent many hours building equipment for the club, including the equipment locker used to this day. We hope this award goes some way to thanking Stan for all that he has done for the club.

Heather Goodman has volunteered countless hours during the years her daughters have been involved with Cowichan Field Hockey Club. She is an organizer extraordinaire, helping co-ordinate field hockey events for our members of all ages. Heather was the Junior Coordinator for five years and is currently the club’s 2ndVice President. We again hope that this award goes some way to show the Club’s appreciation.

Regrettably, Stan and Heather were unable to attend the Awards Dinner. Alan Waterman accepted the awards on their behalf.

Udham Hundal – West Coast Kings Field Hockey Club

Udham Hundal has made a tremendous impact on sport and cultural activities for adults and children alike. He has been instrumental in building field hockey in his local community and in helping create the West Coast Kings Field Hockey Club. He has been organizing the International field hockey Tournament since 2008 and along with other society members has been organizing the Canada Cup international hockey tournament since 2011. The success of the Canada Cup is all because of his hard work and dedication along with other society members. Healthy competition for field hockey among the community youth has emerged and it has given a lot encouragement to youth in society. With his dedication he has enriched the lives of many generations especially youth by serving as a role model and mentor. Udham has achieved excellence in his field of work and made significant, observable changes to the Canadian sports community.

On behalf of the West Coast Kings Field Hockey Club, it is Field Hockey BC’s pleasure to present a community voluntary recognition award to Udham Hundal.


Chris Baggott – West Vancouver Field Hockey Club

Most clubs rely on a handful of families to keep the lights on. At West Vancouver Field Hockey Club it is the Baggott family. Unfortunately for Chris, he is the last in a long line of dedicated Field Hockey volunteers. He is still hoping for a younger brother to take over!  It’s looking like he might have to wait for the next generation.

Chris took over the West Van Field Hockey Club’s Men’s division in 2012 and has provided a quietly competent and very steady hand. Nobody really knows how much work Chris has put into the men’s club…. but it is much more than anyone else. He has expanded and grown the men’s side because of his diligence to signing up people and staying on top of league issues. Plus his umpiring has improved dramatically since he has been forced to umpire so many games that no one else volunteers for. Huge thanks to Chris; the West Vancouver Field Hockey Club Men would not exist without him.

On behalf of the West Vancouver Field Hockey Club, it is Field Hockey BC’s pleasure to present a community voluntary recognition award to Chris Baggott.

2016 Field Hockey BC Volunteer Recognition Awards 

A volunteer is defined as “a person who freely offers to undertake a task”. Our field hockey community has a great many volunteers and tonight we again recognise those that have played a role in assisting our sport at a provincial, regional, and local level. Field Hockey BC hopes that the following voluntary recognition awards go some way to expressing our gratitude for the difference you make to our sport.

In the category of Athlete Program Support, Field Hockey BC would like to recognise:

Heather Goodman

Heather is one of the busiest people we know with an incredible ability to manage multiple Field Hockey BC programs at the same time on the Island. Heather was involved with both Regional and Provincial Programs as a manager last season and has daughters in the Learn to Train, Train to Train and Train to Compete stages!

Heather is a crucial resource for Field Hockey BC as she answers numerous questions from families, sorts out logistics, sends out clear communication, takes beautiful action shots and makes time for the small things that make a big difference. Heather is a perennial champion, we are so lucky to have the opportunity to work with her and we hope in some small way this award shows our gratitude for everything she does.

Robbee Swan

Robbee has been a leader for Field Hockey BC in the Interior because of her involvement as a Manager for both Regional and Provincial Programming. This past season she managed squads in both programs which involved countless hours sorting out carpooling, team get-togethers, communications and more! Robbee is a joy to work with because of her proactivity and desire to help anywhere she can to make these programs successful. In addition, Robbee has always been an important voice for Field Hockey BC in the Interior in spreading the word so families know about opportunities to play field hockey.

In the category of Event Hosting Support, Field Hockey BC would like to recognise:

Sophie Pilkington

Two years ago Sophie took over the unenviable task of managing the Beer Garden operations for the Vancouver International Tournament, an event hosted by Field Hockey BC. Some might say that this job has some obvious merit, but this is very much an essential service in Field Hockey BC’s hosting of this event, and the organisation and time commitment required is significant. With the support of her husband, Tim, the Pilkington’s have taken point in enhancing this event and have always done so with a smile on their face.

In the category of Facility Support, Field Hockey BC would like to recognise:

Jo-Ann Harrington

Jo-Ann continues to be a key contributor to the programs and services offered by the West Vancouver Field Hockey Club. In her role as facility coordinator Jo-Ann has and continues to be a huge asset to both the Club and to Field Hockey BC in the coordination of field times and field allocation on the North Shore. We cannot thank Jo-ann enough for her continued support. Eric Broom, Coaching Director on FHBC’s Board of Directors, accepted the award on her behalf.

Charlotte is an outstanding Nationally rated umpire who has mentored Junior Hawks umpires and umpired their games for many years. She can also be relied upon to umpire at club, regional and Provincial tournaments throughout the year. She also coached many of our U11-U18 junior Teams and worked with Field Hockey BC as a Team BC coach. Charlotte is a positive role model demonstrated by her reliability, knowledge and commitment to the sport. We are lucky to have her as part of the field hockey community!

Anne has been an active player and junior coach with Cowichan Field Hockey for many years. Anne was our indoor junior coordinator and has been the clubs secretary and registrar for over 5 years – which is a huge undertaking! If we need a volunteer, Anne is there. She has helped on countless committees and at junior, ladies, and indoor tournaments. I can’t begin to add up all of the volunteer hours she has given to the club. Accepting the award on behalf of Anne is Heather Goodman.

Deneen Asano – Burnaby Field Hockey Club

Deneen has been a major contributor to Burnaby Field Hockey Club in her role as Club Treasurer. She has gone above and beyond the responsibilities of her role and has taken on many other projects. Most recently, Deneen has been involved in the project to bring a water-based turf to Burnaby. Furthermore, Deneen was part of a group that started a Junior Academy for children under the age of 12 and she maintains an ardent supporter of grass roots development and program opportunity.

Pat Hall

Field Hockey BC is proud to recognise the considerable contribution of Pat Hall to the sport of field hockey over a voluntary career spanning 50 years. This year saw Pat retire from her most recent position on the VILFHA executive as Director of Operations. Outside of her voluntary duties on the executive, Pat was a player from 1961-88, helped co-found the Victoria Junior League in 1967 and was umpiring regularly until 2000. Pat’s list of volunteer contributions is endless and includes being a B.C. or Victoria representative with Field Hockey BC (formerly BC Women’s Field Hockey Federation), Field Hockey Canada (formerly the Canadian Women’s Field Hockey Association), the South Island Umpires Association and the Victoria Junior Field Hockey Association. Pat has been the honoured recipient of the Field Hockey BC Barbara Schrodt Award, a BC Women’s Field Hockey Federation Gold Pin Volunteer recipient, as well as, a Sport BC’s President’s Award recipient, to name but a few.

In the category of Athlete Program Support, Field Hockey BC would like to recognise:

Neil McLennan

It is Field Hockey BC’s pleasure to recognise the significant contribution that Neil McLennan has made to Coaching and Athlete Mentorship within the provincial Team BC program. Neil has guided the development of provincial athletes for a period of thirteen consecutive years, only stepping down this past summer. Neil continues to coach at a club and high school level, but in recognition of his commitment to Team BC athlete development, it is our pleasure to present a token of our gratitude to Neil at this year’s Dinner.

This Award is presented by Mark Saunders, Executive Director at Field Hockey BC

Ian MacKenzie

Ian’s nomination for this award goes without question. He played a vital role as Team BC Manager for the boy’s Train to Train White team. Ian was there to ensure things went smoothly for the boys on and off the pitch all season long. He was also tasked with the challenge of getting the team to Brampton, Ontario for Nationals which meant he became an instant ‘Dad’ to 16 excited teenagers, many of whom were traveling without their parents for the first time. Ian’s calm demeanor and thoughtfulness went a long way towards helping the team feel comfortable in their new surroundings and this certainly showed on the field. FHBC greatly appreciates all of Ian’s efforts!

This Award is presented by Eric Broom, Coaching Director at Field Hockey BC.

Deb Reidl

Deb is extremely deserving of this award. She managed teams in both the Regional and Provincial Programs and spent many hours emailing, planning activities, coordinating transport, billeting and making sure the kids had enough snacks and drinks at the pitch. Deb was very well prepared for the role having helped out with ice hockey for many years and her SUV was packed with anything the team might need. Her positive attitude and ‘get er done’ attitude made it an absolute pleasure for the FHBC staff to work with her, especially considering the many roster changes that occurred during the program. Thank you to Deb!

This Award is presented by Colleen Reay, Athlete Program Manager at Field Hockey BC.

In the category of Event Hosting Support, Field Hockey BC would like to recognise:

Mike Gunning

Over the past 3 years Mike Gunning, and the Delta Falcons Field Hockey Club, have hosted the Under 18 Girls Club Championships.  Mike has played an important role in covering most logistical aspects of club championship hosting, from taking care of administrative functions to helping on the field to ensure that the tournament operates according to plans.  He is a great resource and we hope this award goes some way to expressing our gratitude for his efforts.

This Award is presented by Paul Chohan, Business Development Director at Field Hockey BC.

Alisa Carey

Alisa has been involved with hosting the U12 Girls Club Championship Festival for the past 3 years.

This Award is presented by Mark Saunders, Executive Director at Field Hockey BC.

Jo-Ann Smith

Jo-Ann has played a vital role in the organization of umpires for the past few seasons of Club Championships.  She is the main umpire coordinator for the Under 14 Girls Festival hosted by West Vancouver Field Hockey Club, and she works with all of the registered teams to help sort out their umpires and scheduling.  Jo-Ann also kindly puts forth her efforts to assist all the West Vancouver team’s source umpires for each of their club championship and festival events. We hope this award goes some way to expressing our gratitude for all that you do.

This Award is presented by Eric Broom, Coaching Director at Field Hockey BC.

Patrick Oswald

Patrick was a very helpful assistant at the Under 12 Boys Club Championship Festival this season.  The Hawks have hosted club championships for a number of years, but this year Patrick became involved as an umpire mentor for all of the umpires involved in the festival.  He worked tirelessly promoting umpiring and certification to all the youngsters on the turf and he has played an instrumental role in the success of the Vancouver Hawks umpire mentorship program. It seems Patrick finds a new way each season to make a difference to our sport and this award certainly compliments previous recognitions in club and league governance and provincial team management. Thank you Patrick.

This Award is presented by Paul Chohan, Business Development Director at Field Hockey BC.
