NJ Heat 2022-23 Tryout Information

NJ Heat Tryouts! 

Why the NJ Heat?

The NJ Heat is based out of our 5 field complex at Soldier Memorial Park and has a 20+ year history of developing players for travel and possible collegiate aspirations. There are currently NJ Heat alumni that play and coach at a DI and DIII level some of who work with players when out of college. We help teams subsidize player cost by providing the opportunity to participate in home friendlies/tournaments/events at no charge and allow teams to be responsible for their own P/L so that they can maximize your registration fees staying with the team to be used on training and events for their players. It is about the overall value your player receives - paying more doesn't mean better.

Most NJ Heat teams work with paid trainers/coaches that have experience playing and developing players at all levels.

Players should tryout for teams that align with their birthdays based on their age as of 12/31/2022.
