CAROLYN WILLIAMS

Coach Carolyn grew up in Connecticut, where she made the switch from figure skating to ice hockey at age eight. Immediately falling in love with the sport, she continued playing for the Connecticut Polar Bears and her town leagues before playing at the University of Connecticut for their DII ACHA team. After graduation Carolyn moved to California. Despite a full time job in the lab, she knew her real passion was always on the ice. Carolyn began coaching hockey in the evenings in Oakland, spending her free time working with players of all ages and abilities. In addition to coaching in-house and learn-to-skate hockey programs, Carolyn also started a special needs ice hockey team and Oakland’s first ever girls hockey program. After a few years on the west coast, her fiancé accepted a job in Chicago and they made the move to the third coast this past September. 

Carolyn is incredibly passionate about hockey and growing the women’s game to help bring it the respect that it deserves. In her free time (other than playing hockey), she loves any sort of outdoor adventure and stuffing herself with pasta. Carolyn will be working with all of our Hawks girls with an emphasis on program development and introducing our youngest Hawks to the girls program.
