FALL TRAINING was a tremendous success!
Stay Tuned for our next season offering...
Warhawks Field Hockey Club will offer an indoor field hockey season, and some extended outdoor practice and tournament options. (Pricing/fees will be assessed separately for each offering).
Indoor season will begin in December and run through February with one indoor practice a week at GOALS and approximately 4 indoor tournaments (this includes NIQ for U16 and U19 and NIT for U12 and U14 ). NIT is an additional cost for U16 and U19 only should they qualify. NIT will be included in the dues for U12 and U14. For U10, we will have one practice a week and participate in local games and/or 2 tournaments.
There are tryouts for the winter indoor season for U12-U19.
No U10 tryouts. U10 players will be contacted after registration closes with the season details.
Team placement, including players that may be asked to play up an age division for tryouts or the season, will be determined by the coaches.
Warhawks was hopeful to offer a full outdoor season and play in a local league however the league has been cancelled due to lack of registrants. Warhawks will field teams for Winter Escape and Disney Showcase, both in Florida in January, and offer outdoor practices to prepare.
Warhawks provides an opportunity for our athletes to participate at the highest level of competition with expert level coaching focused on player development, sportsmanship and teamwork. Our staff includes Olympic Development coaches, current and former national team and collegiate players, and college and high school coaches. As a part of the club program, our athletes can take part in our college recruiting program. We assist our players in establishing their future goals and provide full support through the recruitment process should they desire to pursue collegiate level play. We are a non-profit organization supported by Howard County Recreation and Parks with a mission to foster and promote the growth of the sport.

THE TUNE UP CAMP WAS INCREDIBLE!

Warhawks Field Hockey Club is hosting a 2-day summer tune up clinic that will take place at the Troy Park turf fields in Elkridge, MD (Fields 3&4) on Monday, August 10 and Tuesday, August 11. The clinic will be run by three current USA women’s national team members Miranda Rigg, Alyssa Parker, and Taylor West, with the support of our Warhawks coaching staff.
Miranda Rigg is a 2020 graduate of James Madison University where she was a standout on the hockey field! Miranda has racked up numerous awards including multiple Preseason All-Conference Team and Player of the Week awards! She has been a member of the All State (VA) and NFHCA All South teams while being voted to the CAA Rookie Team as well as the All-Conference Team! Miranda was selected this past January to be a member of Team USA! She is IMPRESSIVE!
Alyssa Parker may be one of the most accomplished hockey players that Howard County has ever produced! Hailing from Woodbine, MD, Alyssa is a graduate of Glenelg High School and a 2016 graduate of the University of Maryland. With two MD state high school titles, an ACC Championship, a B1G 10 Championship, a NCAA semi-finalist, a Women’s Championship Champion and a Bronze medal at the 2019 Pan Am Games… If Alyssa is on your hockey team you are almost guaranteed a chance to win a championship! What’s most impressive about her career accomplishments is that in her junior year as a Terp she was awarded the B1G 10 Sportsmanship Award!
Taylor West is a product of the great state of Maryland and represents Pocomoke High School as a standout in the sport since birth! Taylor has been training with Team USA since 2016 and quickly made an impact on the world stage! The list of her accomplishments at James Madison is long and very impressive but here is a snapshot… CAA Rookie Team, years of Preseason All CAA selections and Player of the Week awards, All State (VA), CAA Player of the Year (2015) All South and All American (1st and 2nd team respectively). All this and she was also a member of the U19 National Team!
