U18AA

Steph Rioux

Steph Rioux grew up in a small town in Northern Ontario where hockey was a big part of his youth. After moving to the Hamilton area, he continued to play hockey, as he truly enjoys the game. Steph has been married to his wife Julie for 25 years and they have 2 daughters, Nicole and Rachel.  Steph’s wife and daughters are all Hamilton Hawks alumni.  Hockey is a passion of the Rioux family. Steph began coaching in the Initiation Program and has been an assistant coach and head coach throughout his 15 years of coaching, 10 of those years being with the Hamilton Hawks. Steph is currently the U18A coach for the 2020-2021 season. 

Steph’s coaching philosophy is simple. Nothing comes easy, you have to put in the work and stay motivated to achieve your goals. But the ultimate goal is to enjoy the game we love. He hopes to have the most positive impact on the lives of the girls that he coaches. 

Steph is looking forward to returning for the 2021-2022 season as the Head Coach for the Hamilton Hawks U18AA team.

U15AA

Jessica Langdon

Jessica Langdon’s dedication to hockey began at the age of just four. The Hamilton Hawks were integral in her development on and off the ice during her career as a person, player, captain, and ultimately as a well-respected Head Coach. Her commitment to her players and association is unrivaled.

The Hamilton Hawks played a crucial role in defining Jessica’s career path trajectory to the NCAA collegiate level during the recruitment process, where she ultimately found success as a member of the Neumann University Knights.

Her coaching philosophy is the provision of an environment that enables players to: put fun first and enjoy themselves, learn the power of a team, develop fundamental skills, and to find a balance between fun, competition, and success. Positive physical and mental health is critical to growth and development.

Jessica’s favourite saying is Together Everyone Achieves More (TEAM). The ability to harness the power of teamwork is an asset that players will rely on not only in athletic sports but in life itself. Compiling players' unique skills and talents to produce a group of people who are effective both on and off the ice is the goal.

Outside of hockey, Jessica uses her skills developed from minoring in the arts at Neumann University to pursue her art and craft-based hobbies.

Jessica is looking forward to returning for the 2021-2022 season, as the Head Coach for the U15AA.

U13AA

Jacqueline Parker

Hockey has been a life-long passion for Jacqueline. She started in minor hockey in Nova Scotia and continued her career in South Western Ontario when her family relocated. She had the benefit of playing her first year of high school at a Prep School in Kent, Connecticut but soon realized that she could get the same quality of hockey development in Ontario without the sacrifice of living far from home. 

Returning to Ontario, it was all hockey all of the time playing for her high school team, Bishop Tonnos, and rep hockey for the Hamilton Hawks, Ancaster Avalanche, and Stoney Creek Sabres. After high school, she headed back to her East Coast roots to join the varsity hockey program at St. Mary's University while completing a degree in Sociology.

Since graduating, she has continued to support the hockey community as a coach, player, and mentor. She was the assistant coach for the Burlington Jr. Barracudas (U-18) and recently began working with the Station Six Fire U18 AAA as their Mental Performance Coach. She is currently completing her Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling while working at the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board.

Jacqueline’s driven by a desire to eliminate barriers for females in sports by helping them reach their peak performance.  As an assistant coach of the U13 Hawks, Jacqueline is excited to return for the 2021-2022 season as the U13AA Head Coach.
