2024-2025 TRYOUTS


The New Jersey Colonials have a long tradition of success as a youth travel hockey organization.  Many players from our boys and girls programs have continued their careers at the college, professional and national team levels.  Teams consistently qualify for league playoffs, Districts and Nationals.

The Colonials offer both on and off-ice training based upon USA Hockey's Long Term Athletic Development Model (LTAD).  We are unique in that we offer Tier 1 and Tier 2 teams for both our youth and girls programs.  Goaltenders receive position specific training and clinics unlike any other program in the area.

Our most important goals are to teach and foster your child's love of hockey.  In the process, we hope they learn valuable life lessons that help them mature into fine young men and women.
