When they do occur they will take place at Capelli Sports Center (1569 Wayside Rd Tinton Falls, NJ, Field Turf) - all levels welcome!  Training opportunities are also available for players who simply want to practice within the club environment (no tournaments) as well.

These trials are open to anyone and all players must try-out again.  Young players encouraged - U12 (4th-6th grade) is a perfect time to get involved with the club. Various commitment levels for multiple sport athletes!!  At the Academy and U12/U14 levels, we are looking for athletic players interested in learning proper fundamentals as well as Goalkeeping!

CLUB OVERVIEW - YEAR IN A GLANCE

Elite Club

JIFH is an elite, championship caliber travel club with a long history of success.  Our club attends all the major United States Field Hockey Association (USFHA) 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 - to see the history of our championships click here -  http://www.intensityfieldhockey.com.prod.sportngin.com/news_article/show/673184?referrer_id=2687941-news

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 in every player's skill level and hockey IQ.  We coach to prepare you for the higher levels of the college game. Goalies work with specialty international 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 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. Tournament opportunities will be available throughout the year:

1. U-12 year-round training and tournament opportunities
2. U-14 year-round training and tournament opportunities
3. U-16/U-19 winter training and tournament opportunities
