Spring and Summer

General Information
All players who would like to participate in spring and summer training must have prior playing experience (we have a fall program for players with no experience). We offer two tracks in the spring/summer seasons: tournament teams and training teams.

Tournament Teams
If you wish to try-out for a tournament team, you must attend a try-out on Wednesday, March 7th at Total Turf in Pitman. In addition to new club members, all returning players who are changing age groups from last OUTDOOR season will also need to attend try-outs, unless you’ve been instructed otherwise. This try-out will be 1.5 hours long, sometime between 6:00-9:00 PM. Once registered, you will be assigned to a try-out slot. If this date absolutely does not work for you, please email us (sjedgecommunications@gmail.com) so we can arrange a different date. We will try to be as flexible as possible, and ask that you do the same.

Practice & Fees
If you make a tournament team, practices will be on either Monday or Wednesday evenings – this will be based on numbers for each age group and team. Training fees will ultimately depend on the team/tournament(s) you are selected for – but will be approximately $275. Additional tournament fees can be estimated as follows:

  • 7v7 tournaments are typically $75 per tournament
  • Showcase tournaments are approx. $250
  • Leagues (JPOL and The Training Center Spring League) are approx. $25 per game

Registration
If you are a NEW player to the club, you MUST complete and mail the following to 1003 Tanglewood Drive, Erial, NJ 08081 in order to register for tournament team try-outs:

  • $50 registration fee – Please make all checks payable to “SJ Edge”. If you end up being selected for a team OR you do the training track instead, this fee will be applied towards your overall payment. If you decide not to compete or train with our club, this will be a non-refundable registration fee.
  • Try-out form – As noted on the form, be sure to note any and all conflicts you may have with tournaments and/or practice days. We know many of you play lax or softball in the spring so we will do our best to work around that whenever possible, but need to know in advance. Please see list of possible tournaments below
  • Waiver

Potential Tournaments/Game Dates
Please compare this list with your calendar prior to completing the registration form (be sure to take note of the designated age groups). If you have conflicts with any of these dates, please note that on the back of your registration form.

Players not selected for a tournament team or as an alternate will still have the opportunity to attend all of our spring clinics (described below).

Training Teams
Different than previous years, we will be hosting clinics on Sundays starting at the end of March. Dates will be finalized and posted here soon. If you only want to participate in these clinics, you do NOT need to attend the try-outs described above for tournament teams. We will host 6 Sunday clinics, and may add additional dates into the summer depending on interest.

Registration & Fees
Unlike in previous years, you will be required to sign-up for clinics prior to the start of the season and pay for them in advance (fees to be determined soon). Money will not be refundable – we hope this will prevent last-minute cancellations and no-shows at practice. WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING UNREGISTERED PLAYERS AT THE FIRST SESSION. ALL PLAYERS MUST PRE-REGISTER. Players not registered by the posted deadline (TBD) will not be eligible to participate.

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

We will send out email correspondence and post information on our Facebook page when registration opens for training only. Sign-up for our newsletter and go like our Facebook page to make sure you don’t miss any important info.
