Welcome to our website. Our club formed January of 2006 and we have had much success. Our team participates in both indoor and outdoor tournaments. Our players demonstrate a positive attitude, teamwork, the ability to think well in all playing situations, the ability to play different positions, excellent stick work and natural athletic abilities. We attend several local tournaments and showcase events. We also made our first appearence at USFHA National Field Hockey Festival in November of 2007, taking 2nd place in our pool, the Disney FH Showcase in February of 2008, National Indoor Qualifiers in January of 2008 and the National Indoor Tournament in 2009, both our U14 and U19 teams took 2nd place.

Joining South Jersey Edge

 

South Jersey Edge has playing opportunities for U10 through U19. We attend the National Hockey Festival, the Senior and Junior Disney Field Hockey tournament, College Showcases, Regional and National Club Championships, Indoor Qualifiers and the National Indoor Tourament. We offer programs in the Winter, Spring and Summer for players of all levels.

Players interested in joining South Jersey Edge can join with any of our training programs. We are currently accepting registrations for our spring training program.

South Jersey Edge will be holding our Spring/Summer training sessions this year at Total Turf in Pitman, NJ. We will be having sessions for U10, U12, U14, U16 and U19. These sessions are for players with prior experience. All players must have played in some way, shape or form before. We have a fall program for players with no experience. For those of you not familiar with the program, we run 2-3 hour sessions on turf. Our practice time is usually around dinner time (a finalized schedule will be posted on our website), therefore there should not be a conflict with Futures. Sessions will run from March-June on Sundays. The first session will be March 15th. We will have 3 training sessions per month (there is 1 holiday per month) and 2 speed and agility sessions. The sessions with speed and agility will be 3 hours, the session with just training will be 2 hours. This is a great way to improve your outdoor skills, learn some new skills and stay in shape through the spring and summer months. It will also help you have a leg up on your school pre-season. We will also use these sessions to identify our U12, U14, U16 and U19 teams for the 2015 Disney Junior Showcase, the 2015 National Hockey Festival and the 2016 USA Field Hockey President's Day Field Hockey Showcase (event replacing the Disney Showcase). We will also hold a tryout in mid July for U16 and U19 if needed. Players already selected will be asked to attend this session. For the players who will be heading to college, this is an opportunity for you to keep up your skills as well. Feel free to invite your friends to participate in this opportunity as well.

There will be some tournaments which the girls will have the opportunity to sign up for, not all players will be eligible for all tournaments. Players must be in good standing financially and attend the majority of the sessions. Once all the dates are released from the tournament directors I will put together a schedule and send out a sign up form. I will only sign up for tournaments that there is enough interest in to ensure we can field a team. You will pay for each tournament at the time you sign up, most tournaments will be $75.

Registration fees/deposits are due by February 26th. We are offering 2 payment options this season. You can pay in full, which includes 12 sessions, the fee is $275. This is the cheapest option per session. You can pay per session, which would be $30 per session. All players must complete the attached form indicating which dates you will be missing. You will be responsible to pay for any sessions you miss if you did not indicate you will not be attending. We need an approx head count to properly plan out the session. Anyone choosing to pay per session must send in a $100 deposit to be used towards the sessions. Please make all checks payable to SJ Edge. Please consider your payment option carefully, refunds will only be issued for a documented injury, minus a $50 administration fee. There is also a $25 registration fee for all new players (players who did not participate in the indoor season).

Registration Instructions: Please mail $25 registration fee (if applicable) and form of payment ($100 deposit for pay per session option or $275 for payment in full option) to 1003 Tanglewood Drive, Erial, NJ 08081. Also mail attached waiver and player registration form.

WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING UNREGISTERED PLAYERS AT THE FIRST SESSION. ALL PLAYERS MUST PRE-REGISTER. It is too chaotic and is unfair to everyone who did pre-register. Players not registered by February 26th will not be eligible to participate in the 1st session. Players will receive an email confirming their registration.

NEW PLAYERS - All new players much purchase a practice pinnie. The fee for that is $30 and must be paid by the first session.
