Cody Hawkins

Assistant Coach

Cody was born and raised in North Delta BC, where he played minor lacrosse for the Delta Lacrosse Association before graduating into their senior program. In Cody’s second year of intermediate, he was able to play a third of the Junior A season with their program as a call up. This allowed for Cody to gain much needed experience, before hopping into what was a dominant three years on the Delta Junior A Islanders back end. In those three years, Cody was named Defensive player of the year in all three years for his club as well as assistant captain in his second year and was honored as Captain in his last and final year. Cody led his team to progressively the three best seasons Delta’s Junior A club had ever had at the time, including a trip to the BC finals in 2012. At the end of the 2012 season, Cody was given the nod for Defensive Player of the Year by the BCJALL and was also chosen for first team all BC.  Shortly after graduation from the junior ranks, Cody was drafted 29th overall by the defending champions, the Rochester Knighthawks, in which Cody was not able to secure a roster spot on an already talented deep roster. The Senior A Adanacs drafted Cody 12th overall in the WLA draft leading into the 2013 season but Cody opted to head to Alberta to pursue work. While in Alberta, Cody was asked to training camp by the Calgary Roughnecks where he inched and clawed for an active roster spot in the 2014 season. After being released late in the 2014 season by the Roughnecks, Cody turned to the Senior B mountaineers of the RMLL to play his past two seasons, where he partook in the 2016 Presidents cup, hosted in Edmonton, AB. During the past two years, Cody has become a gym owner, where he takes pride in providing an old school environment for athletes to thrive during the off-seasons. Cody also has racked up 10 years of field lacrosse experience playing minor with the Delta Footmen and senior with the Ladner Pioneers. Along with Cody’s playing career, he was a top end referee in minor’s for 10 years, having refereed many provincial medal games from pee-wee to midget as well as representing BC at the 2012 female nationals held at the Queenspark arena in New Westminster, BC.
