JPOL Invitation Criteria

Junior Premier Outdoor League (JPOL) is a USA FH Sanctioned event. An open invitation to the event is sent to all USA FH Member Clubs. Invitation and acceptance criteria is outlined below.

THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CLUBS ACCEPTED

Under normal circumstances, with limited JPH resources/staff and in an effort to manage the length of day per schedule, the JPH Directors have set a limit on the number of accepted clubs in the U16 & U19 age divisions to 11 and the R3-7 U14 event to 22.

Each club may register one team in each of the U14, U16 and U19 age divisions of their region’s JPOL. If there is space after the registration deadline, clubs may submit a request or be invited to enter a second team in any of the available divisions.

Clubs interested in participating outside their domicile region see details at the bottom of this page.

Although we set maximum registration limits, JPH will continually review the current event formats in each region and make every effort to accommodate all interested clubs wishing to compete in the Junior Premier Outdoor League (JPOL) in their region.

But these are not normal circumstances! Due to the effects of COVID-19 and the difficulty of securing venues, we must limit the number of participating Clubs in each region.

To be clear and transparent to all, selection and acceptance for each region will be made in accordance with the following listed criteria.

Maximum number of accepted clubs: 10

Due to COVID-19, the 2021 U14 Division was initially open only to clubs in Region 5, therefore they will be given selection priority. Selection for remaining entries will be based on the following:

  • Club entry received for additional events within their domicile region
  • Clubs registered for the 2020 JPOL prior to cancellation
  • Final ranking from the most recently concluded JPOL (2019 JPOL)
  • Most recent USA FH ranking (March 10, 2020)

Space is limited.
