Place ALL Orders by Wednesday, August 26, 2020.


Dear Warhawks Families,


Thank you for your continued commitment and hard work for the past several months. This is not the field hockey club year any of us imagined!


This Spring, Warhawks kept our players engaged with our weekly virtual skills training videos and weekly coach connect team sessions.  Once we could take the field, we did so safely and kept practices rolling  through the Summer. And we LOVED the US National Team Clinic - it was an incredible 2 days working with a few of the best players in the game today!


With our high school field fall hockey seasons now cancelled, we remain committed to giving our players opportunities to compete, grow in skill and stay active in the recruiting process.  The Fall Club League and/or Fall skills training will keep you practicing and playing! Stay tuned for more on recruiting!


For our younger athletes, Warhawks will supplement your traditional rec season with additional training and/or the fall club league. New this Fall - we are adding Pee Wee training, ages 5-7, so spread the word!


We are incredibly fortunate to have the most dedicated coaches who advocate tirelessly for the best competitive opportunities for our athletes. The coaches were more excited to see your faces in person than you, the athletes, when taking the field again this Summer! Thank you to each and every coach! 


Warhawks will continue to work tirelessly to keep the field hockey season alive this Fall and keep up to date on all the guidelines and recommendations for safe play.   Let's keep playing hockey safely and TOGETHER!


We will post any updates to our Fall and Indoor season here, as well as communicate via teamsnap.


Thank you for supporting Warhawks!
