U14 Disney Field Hockey Outdoor Tournament (age as of Dec. 31st, 2022) - Jan. 27th-29th. 

We will be sending a U14 7-aside team to the Disney Field Hockey Tournament to be held Jan. 27-29 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. This is always a club favorite and is a great atmosphere for our younger U14 players.  This tournament is age dependent so if you turn 14 BEFORE 12/31/2022 you are unfortunately not eligible.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INDOOR SEASON (8th graders can participate in U14 indoor season, regardless of age as of 12/31/2022)

This is a separate club season where we train indoors at Monroe Sports Center on Sundays and play in a couple tournaments (Saturdays) between Dec-Feb months.  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 'you tube' indoor field hockey to see how it is played.  Indoor is great to develop faster stick skills and decision-making skills.

Training will take place on Sundays between 1-6 at the Monroe Sports Center (1 hr 45 min training time).  U14's will most likely train from 1-2:45 timeslot.

How will U14 indoor selections work?  

We will be inviting a group of players to train and play in scrimmages/tournaments on 1/7, 1/14, & 2/11 or 2/12.  We will also invite players to participate in indoor skills training only to learn the game, no friendlies (just intersquad at training).  

U14 Indoor Training Dates at Monroe Sports Center:

12/4; 12/11; 12/18; 1/8; 1/22;  & 2/5.  

Indoor Fees: $300 Training Fee

Indoor Tournament Fees: Paid per tournament, can ranged from ~$50-$85 depeding on final roster size

U14 2021-2022 INDOOR CLUB SCHEDULE

U14 2021-2022 INDOOR SEASON 

At the U14 level we will be stressing PROPER FUNDAMENTALS!!!  Due to COVID, we did not have an indoor season last winter so this year will especially be a learning and developmental year with the indoor game.  If you haven't played this style of hockey before, it's a completely different game - different sticks and indoor gloves are needed for the winter season.  We will have a couple friendlies with another NJ club to put what we are learning at practice in a competitive setting.  The primary goal of the indoor game is to increase the speed of not only your stick skills but of your decision making as well.  It is a fast game with only 5 players and a GK on the team.  The court is much smaller so decisions have to be made quickly.  Field hockey is a very skilled sport and in order to advance at the upper U16/U19 levels this level is where the proper techniques need to be enforced.  The increased speed of the indoor game will greatly improve your decision making skills under pressure or your HOCKEY IQ!

U16 INDOOR FEES

U16 Practices $315 (U16"A") or $415 (U16"E") - team dependent).  Practice fees are non-refundable and will not be pro-rated.  

Tournament fees will be based on team placement.  

We will have one U16 Elite team and two U16 Academy teams.  Tournament fees for Elite team will be charged the same way as in year’s past.  A rough estimate fee for tournaments will be $325.  For every tournament you participate in, that fee will be deducted from your account/credit.  Each tournament fee is divided by the number of players on the roster.  If, after all the tournaments you have money left, you will receive a refund check for the difference.  Teams will play in 1-2 tournaments a month (Dec, Jan & Feb.).  The majority of tournaments we will enter will be on Saturdays in PA.  Please note, each tourney can range from $50-$90 depending on the number of players playing that day.  If you play in more than 4 tourneys, you will most definitely owe money at the end of the season.  This fee does not include the National Indoor Tournament Qualifier & National Indoor Tournament should you be placed on a select team.  NOTE:  tourney fee commitment – as described these fees are based on a limited number of players playing on a team.  Because of the smaller roster size, if one or two people don’t play the fees go up a lot as it’s just divided by the number of athletes playing that day.  If we are told in advance that you can not play in a tournament I usually am able to find a replacement.  If you tell me the day before you will still be charged the tourney fee as it’s not fair to other players on the team for the price to go up substantially.  

Academy U16 teams will pay per playday.  We will schedule 3 play-days in NJ area.  Fees will be charged per friendly and will be divided by the number of players available that day.

Also note – not everyone will play in a National Indoor Tournament Qualifier – selected players will attend this tournament.   Should the team qualify, they will also participate in the National Indoor Tournament (March 4th-6th) at the Spooky Nook sports center in Lancaster, PA.  If you commit to the qualifier that means you are also available for the NIT.  Note - there will be an additional fee and overnight stay required for this National tournament.  Missing school on Friday is a possibility as well, depending on schedule.

Tournament fees will be based on team placement.  

We will have two U19 Qualifying teams and one U19 local Academy team.  Tournament fees for select teams will be charged the same way as in year’s past. How the tournament fees work is as follows: A rough estimate fee for tournaments will be $325.  For every tournament you participate in, that fee will be deducted from your account/credit.  Each tournament fee is divided by the number of players on the roster.  If, after all the tournaments you have money left, you will receive a refund check for the difference.  Teams will play in 1-2 tournaments a month (Dec, Jan & Feb.).  The majority of tournaments we will enter will be on Saturdays in PA.  Please note, each tourney can range from $50-$90 depending on the number of players playing that day.  If you play in more than 4 tourneys, you will most definitely owe money at the end of the season.  This fee does not include the National Indoor Tournament Qualifier & Tournament should you be placed on a select team.  NOTE:  tourney fee commitment – as described these fees are based on ~9-10  players playing on a team.  Because of the smaller roster size, if one or two people don’t play the fees go up a lot as it’s just divided by the number of athletes playing that day.  If we are told in advance that you can not play in a tournament I usually am able to find a replacement.  If you tell me the day before you will still be charged the tourney fee as it’s not fair to other players on the team for the price to go up substantially.  

Local Academy U19 team will pay per playday.  We will schedule 3 play-days in NJ area.  Fees will be charged per friendly and will be divided by the number of players available that day.

Also note – not everyone will play in a National Indoor Tournament Qualifier – selected players will attend this tournament.   Should the team qualify, they will also participate in the National Indoor Tournament (Feb. 25-27) at the Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, VA.  If you commit to the qualifier that means you are also available for the NIT.  Note - there will be an additional fee and overnight stay required for this National tournament.  Missing school on Friday is a strong possibility as well, depending on schedule.

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/league opportunities
