JPOL

To provide a standardized competition structure for you and your athletes, Junior Premier Hockey (JPH) hosts several outdoor leagues throughout the spring season for most USA FH regions. These events are under the umbrella of the Junior Premier Outdoor League (JPOL) and take place in Region 1-4 (Northeast/New York), Region 5 (Pennsylvania), Region 6 (New Jersey), Region 7 (Chesapeake) and Region 8 (South) with additional events for U16 & U19 Elite and U14 Combined. Event details are outlined below.

NOTE: Throughout the planning process we do our best to coordinate with USAFH to avoid many, if not all, Nexus and RCC conflicts. However, with limited facility availability and the continually evolving Nexus schedule, we are unable to avoid all conflicts. As noted throughout the JPOL registration process, all registered clubs are committed to compete on all stated competition dates, so please plan accordingly.
