2023-2024 U12 & U14 WINTER CLUB INFORMATION/TRIALS SUNDAY NOVEMBER 5TH, 2023

U12 & U14 WINTER EVENTS

For a description of winter events please read carefully below.  NOTE - the indoor game compliments the outdoor game. To gain maximum improvement, players are encouraged to participate in BOTH the "indoor" and outdoor (outdoor meaning turf skills) winter skills.  The schedule is designed to work together so there are no conflicts between the two styles of play. 

I. U12 players (must be 11 or younger on 12/31/2023) can be evaluated for any or ALL of the following:

A) The U12 club "indoor" season consists of a different style of play - where we train indoors at Monroe Sports Center on Sundays and play in intersquad scrimmages and/or friendlies with another NJ club. The indoor game is played with different sticks and rules - 5 players and GK on the court (which is a little bigger than a basketball size court).  Boards are placed along the sidelines, so players play rebounds off the side.  It is a very fast paced game that helps with stickwork tremendously.  You can click indoor field hockey you tube to see how it is played.  Indoor is great to develop faster stick skills and decision-making skills.

B) U12 Turf Training (will practice indoors but turf skills) with 7-Aside local tournament(s) in mid Jan.  Training (between 4-7 sessions, TBD) takes place on Mondays at Good Sports with local (NJ) 7-aside indoor TURF tournament in mid-late January.  

II. U14 players can be evaluated for any or all of the following:

A) The "indoor" season (different style of game, click here to watch highlights indoor field hockey you tube).

We will have various level of teams. But for all U14 teams, the most important part of indoor is the focus on proper fundamentals which will carry over into your outdoor game. All players train with all our club coaches.

Players will be selected to participate in the following:

1) Indoor skills training only to learn the game, no friendlies (just intersquad at training)

2) be invited to participate in friendly "indoor" scrimmages 

3) be invited to participate in a higher level "indoor" NJ league 

4) be invited to participate in the National Indoor Tournament to be held in Lancaster, PA (U14 only).  Note, only the U14 National Indoor Tournament (NIT) will be age dependent so if you are an 8th grader who turns 14 before 12/31/2023, you can still participate in our U14 winter training and local events just NOT the U14 NIT.

  • U14 "Indoor" Training Dates at Monroe Sports Center - see above
  • U14 "Indoor" Friendly/Scrimmage Fees: Paid per play-day, can range from ~$50-$85 depending on final roster size​​​​​​​
  • U14 National Indoor Tournament should you be invited is a separate fee, between $300-$350 (dependent on final roster size). This would require hotel stay as it's a 3 day event. Players will receive an invitation after the coaches evaluate at training in December.

B) U14 Turf Training (will practice inside but will be turf skills) with 7-Aside local tournament(s) in mid-late Jan. for players up to 8th grade.  Training takes place at Good Sports - (about ~4-7 sessions) with local (NJ) 7-aside indoor TURF tournament in mid-late January.  

C) We will be taking a U14 7-aside team to the Sunshine Field Hockey Tournament to be held Jan. 26-28 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. This is always a club favorite and is a great atmosphere for our U14 players.  This tournament is age dependent so if you turn 14 BEFORE 12/31/2023 you are unfortunately not eligible.  

  • The Sunshine Showcase training dates will take place on Mondays between 6:30-8 PM- 11/27; 12/4; 12/18; 1/15; 1/22
  • Disney Outdoor Tournament fee - the final fee will be determined once all expenses are known and final roster size is determined but in year's past it has been ~$400-$425.

Elite Club

JIFH is an elite, championship caliber travel club with a long history of success.  Our club attends all the major college National showcases and has helped numerous athletes attend the colleges of their choice (see our Alumni section). Intensity has garnered medals in every major tournament hosted by USAFH and Shooting Star. 

The staff of Jersey Intensity is made up of passionate, elite level coaches with high school, collegiate and international experience. We pride ourselves in having a low coach/player ratio. Our head coaches have been with the club since its inception and travel hundreds of miles every week to coach at our weekend training sessions and tournaments.  They are dedicated and committed to the improvement of every player's skill level and as well as their hockey IQ.  We coach to prepare you for the higher levels of the college game. Goalies work with specialty goalkeeping coaches each session, in most cases having three GK coaches per session!

In addition to aiding athletes in achieving collegiate play, JIFH has had representation at all levels of our USA National squads, from the U17 National Squad up to the Senior National Squad.

Academy Travel Team Programs

Jersey Intensity also offers Academy training opportunities for those players wishing to improve their skills in a competitive but fun environment. This Academy is designed for young players first learning the game (U-12 and U-14) or for older players (U-16/U-19) who need more time developing and honing their skills before they are ready to move up to one of our championship level National travel teams. It is also for the player who wants to train with our ELITE level coaching staff but who cannot commit to National tournaments. U12/U14/U16/U19 Tournament opportunities will be available primarily in winter and spring/early summer. 
 

How can I join the Club?

We traditionally have 3 try-outs a year (if you miss a trial email Kathleen to arrange coming to a practice for an evaluation as we will evaluate newcomers throughout the year). 

Trials for our Thanksgiving showcase teams takes place in early September.  We then have trials for the indoor season in early December.  Spring season trials take place in March of each year.
