Warhawks Goalie Clinics with Sanya Sandahl and Amelia Murray

The Warhawks are excited to offer this special summer goalie clinic with Sanya Sandahl and Amelia Murray.  This is a must do clinic for those serious about bringing their goaltending to the next level. The clinic is limited to two groups of six goalies. The 3-1 goalie to coach ratio will allow for serious instruction and net time.  In addition to providing elite goalie instruction, Sanya's clinics make the hard work fun, and foster camaraderie and support among the goalies and coaches.

The Warhawks Summer Goalie Clinic begins on June 16th with seven weekly sessions.  Click below for clinic details and to register:


About the coaches:

Sanya Sandahl is the premier women's goalie coach in the midwest.  Her GDI USA girls clinics routinely sell out well in advance. Her approach is uniquely designed to get the most out of girl goaltenders. Sanya coaches the top girl goaltenders including a majority of the Tier 1 goaltenders in Illinois. She is the goaltender coach for the CYA girls program and co-head coach for their U16 and U19 teams.  Additionally she has been a goaltender coach at the USA Nationals Camp for the last 3 years. 

Amelia Murray has been providing goalie instruction with Sanya for over three years.  She is a favorite of the girls at the GDI girl clinics.  She played college hockey at Union College and was named to the ECAC Hockey All-Academic Team in 2018-19.  Prior to college Amelia played at CYA where she captained her team to a National Championship and State Championship in 2012-13. She was named Best Goaltender in the state of Illinois in 2014-15.

Announcing: Warhawks CoFIT Virtual Workouts

Without a clear date to get back onto the ice, the Warhawks coaching staff would like to take this opportunity to establish virtual workouts for the girls.  We will be conducting an all-level 30 minute workout twice a week.  Sessions will be at 4:30pm, on Tuesday and Thursdays via Zoom.  Session are free of charge and you must register here (

The session will consist of a stretch/warmup, stick drills, hand / eye coordination, flexibility & agility and some yoga.  Each session will require some materials (stick, gloves, puck, small hard ball, cones/tape, yoga mat, etc) and the coaches will be sure to provide that list prior to the event.   We will be sending weekly emails with the link to the e-training session via zoom with the login code for that week.

In addition to our Warhawk coaches, we will have a few sessions that are hosted by college, semi-professional and professional players.  They will bring their best dryland experience to help our girls prepare at the next level! Below is the current tentative schedule:

   Goalies, you are welcome to join Tuesday & Thursday.  However, we are planning to have dedicated GOALIE sessions start Wednesdays with Eric Levine.  Eric is the owner of MidWest Goalie School and is a professional goalie for the Peoria Riverman.  The start date is TBD right now.

Congratulations Former Warhawks

Congratulations to former Warhawks Courtney Schumacher and Margot Norehad on winning the AHAI Tier 1  Girls U16 State Championship in exciting fashion. 

After losing the first game in the best of three championship to the Chicago Young Americans 3-2 in overtime, the Mission came back in Game Two winning 5-4 in double overtime, setting the stage for a deciding Game 3. The game ended 1-1 which meant another overtime. After four full overtime periods,  and 3+ hours of hockey, Margot's goal decided the game and crowned the Mission State Champions.


We are proud of both of you!
