5th Annual JPIL Kick-off on December 27!

Junior Premier Hockey (JPH) Organizers are pleased to announce that the Junior Premier Indoor League (JPIL) is set to kick off on December 27, 2016 for the fifth consecutive year.

Nine new clubs accepted our invitation and will be participating for the first time, helping to maintain the high level of competition that is expected at this premier event.

All three Divisions, U-14, U-16 and U-19 will compete over six weekend dates, utilizing four different venues throughout the course of the winter months from December to February.

With the FIH agreeing to revert back to the 6 v 6 model and USAFH continuing to follow our lead and playing 2 @ 20 minutes games at NIT, JPIL will continue to run in accordance with the International standards (FIH).

Participation in the Junior Premier Indoor League provides athletes and coaches with a high level of competition on a regular basis, preparing all for success at the National Indoor Qualifiers, National Indoor Tournaments and for a few, International competition.

“All the best wishes from USA Field Hockey to all the participants of the 5th Annual Junior Premier Indoor League,” said Simon Hoskins, USA Field Hockey’s Executive Director. “The JPIL is an excellent platform for young athletes to develop their indoor hockey skills and compete throughout the winter in a high level competition.”

This Junior Premier Indoor League (JPIL) is an invitation only event. All clubs in each Division were identified and invited to participate based on performance at the 2015 National Indoor Tournament (NIT) or based on performance at the 2015 Junior Premier Indoor League (JPIL), in accordance with our Invitation Criteria.
