2018 JPOL Champions

The 6th Annual Junior Premier Outdoor League (JPOL) came to a close on June 3rd and we would now like to recognize and celebrate all of the victors and show our appreciation to all participants, supporters, volunteers and sponsors.

After several league dates of competitive field hockey, we can truly say that the benefits of participation and growing the game can be attested by many throughout the nation. The improvements in the quality of games from the first weekend in April to the various Championships is commendable and reflects the commitment of the players, parents, coaches, umpires, technical staff and many others.

The continued success of this League would not be possible without the support of many who tirelessly give of their time and experience. Much appreciation to the club directors, coaches and their membership who join us each spring to make this league possible. Many thanks to the Umpire Managers (UMs) and Technical Directors (TDs) and their staff of dedicated Technical Officers (TO), Umpires and parent Judges. You all give so much of your time and talent to be part of this event and its continued successes.
