TRIALS FOR 2021-2022 U14 WINTER CLUB EVENTS

I.  U14 Disney Field Hockey Outdoor Tournament (age as of Dec. 31st, 2021) - Jan. 28th-30th - TRIALS NOVEMBER 7th

We will be entering 7-aside travel teams into the Disney Field Hockey Tournament to be held Jan. 28-30 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. This is always a club favorite and is a great atmosphere for our younger U14 players and if interest warrants a U12 team.  This tournament is age dependent so if you turn 14 BEFORE 12/31/2021 you are unfortunately not eligible.  

If you are selected for a team, we will have Disney training on Mondays at Good Sports on Mondays: 12/6, 12/13, 12/20, 12/27 (tentative), 1/3, 1/10, and 1/17 from 5:30-7:00 PM.

Disney Tournament fee, including JI Monday training will be $250 training + tournament fee (in past years it has been around $400).  USAFH hasn't released the registration fees so final fee will be determined once all expenses are known and final roster size is determined.

If available, we would also like to enter selected Disney players into a winter 7-aside good sports league for extra game play training (that fee would be separate to Good Sports) that will last from early December to March.  Registration would not be through JI as it's a Good Sports League, we would simply enter a JI team into their league so separate fees apply.

II. Club U14 "Indoor" Season TRIALS NOVEMBER 7th

This is a separate club season where we train indoors at Monroe Sports Center on Sundays and play in 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 player's stick work tremendously.  You can 'you tube' indoor field hockey to see how it is played.

Training will take place on Sundays from 1-3 at the Monroe Sports Center.

U14 Indoor Training at Monroe Sports Center:

12/5 - 1-3 PM

12/12 - 1-3 PM

12/19 - 1-3 PM

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 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.
