Clinics/Skills Academy Training
We offer clinics and skills training year round for players in grade K-12. Our main facility is the Florham Park Sports Dome. If you are interested in playing on a New Heights team, this is the best way to get to know our coaches and have your skills assessed.
USAFH National Festival
(Practice September - November) Festival is the oldest national tournament in the country and is played in Florida over the Thanksgiving weekend. We take multiple teams at all age levels to compete against teams from all over the U.S. For high school players, this is a major recruiting event. Tryouts are in late May/early June and are open to all interested players. Practices are held on Sunday mornings in the fall.
Indoor is a 5v5 format, played with a slightly different stick on a wooden floor with wooden boards around the perimeter. The game is very fast paced and is an excellent way to improve your stick skills. We have multiple teams at each age level and a training team for players looking to improve their skills in a less competitive environment. The Indoor season is December through mid-February (later if your team qualifies for the National Tournament). Tryouts are held in September. Practices are held once per week beginning late November and three tournaments are held on Saturdays or Sundays in December, January and February. The tournaments are in Mt. Olive, South Jersey or Pennsylvania.
(1st weekend in February)
Practices are on the indoor turf at the Florham Park Sports Dome in December and January. The Disney Showcase is one of two major college recruiting events run by USAFH. It’s held at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando, Florida. We take multiple teams at each age level. Tryouts are at the same time as Festival tryouts (late May/early June).
NOTE: Due to COVID-19, the 2021 Disney tournament has been delayed until late spring. When details are available they will be posted. All players who made the team in the fall are eligible for the spring tournament.
We put U12, U14, U16 and U19 teams together to play in one day tournaments or showcases at colleges such as Princeton, Columbia, Drew, Monmouth, Lafayette, Lehigh, Rutgers, University of Pennsylvania, etc. The schedule varies each year. In order to attend the tournaments, you must be a USAFH member and have played either on a Festival, Indoor or Disney team. Information/Registration is available in March.
Regional Club Championships (RCC)
Hosted by USAFH, this is an invitation only tournament for U14, U16 and U19 club teams in Region 6. As opposed to Festival and Disney, where we take multiple teams in each age group, New Heights is only allowed to enter one team in each age group to compete for a spot in the National Club Championships. Each RCC tournament is played on a weekend in April, May or June (the weekend varies each year and is different for each age group). It is usually held on astro turf at Princeton or Monmouth University. New Heights holds tryouts for RCC teams in March. The level of competition at the RCC is very high, so only the strongest players will be selected to play. Tournament preparation includes practices and scrimmages.
National Club Championships (NCC)
If our team(s) come in first or second place at the RCCs, the team(s) will qualify for the NCC held at the Spooky Nook in Manheim, PA or in Virginia Beach in mid-July. The NCC is the premier national tournament and USAFH hosts the top 16 teams in the country. The NCC is a major recruiting event and is attended by hundreds of college coaches. This is a very important tournament for national rankings. In 2019 New Heights U19 team was ranked #2 in the country and the U16s were ranked #4. The U14s were in the Top 20.
