It is the mission of Junior Premier Hockey to promote the spirit of competition, provide exposure to high-level hockey and increase participation within the sport.
Due to the success of the JPIL and keeping true to our mission “to promote and increase the level of competition”, we introduced the Junior Premier Outdoor League (JPOL). It is a well-organized and competitive outdoor league, whereby all participating youth clubs have the opportunity to compete on a regular basis.
Both JPIL and JPOL are USA Field Hockey Sanctioned events.
Participation in the U-14 league is based on an open invitation limited to a maximum of twenty four (24) teams.
Participation in the U-16 & U-19 leagues are by invitation only, based on certain performance criteria, including performance at the National Indoor Tournament (NIT) organized by the National Governing Body, USA Field Hockey, as well as, performance from previous JPIL.
In the past, Clubs from the following states participated:
- New Jersey
- New York
The JPOL brings together a maximum of twelve (12) U-16 & U-19 youth clubs (24 clubs) all from the same USA FH region. Ages range from 9 to 19 with approximately 2500 athletes registering in 2016.
Since a successful inaugural year in 2013 in Region 6 (New Jersey), JPOL has grown to include Region 5 (Pennsylvania), Region 7 (Chesapeake), Region 8 (South), a tournament weekend in Region 4 (New York) and an invitation only U14 Division based out of Regions 3/4/5/6/7. We will continue to look at adding additional Regions in the future.
Each year, all USA FH Member youth clubs within each event Region will be invited to participate.
Over 1,000 players, officials, volunteers and spectators will be in attendance
