New Jersey Colonial Giangiulio NEEDS YOUR VOTE!

11-year New Jersey Colonial and current Midget 18 A team member, Chris Giangiulio, has been nominated as the "Hardest Working Football Player in the Tri-State Area!" by the "Heart of a Giant" program. Your vote would help Chris earn equipment and $$$ for his high school football program.  We know what you're thinking-"But it's not hockey!"

Chris' dad, Coach Mark Giangiulio, has devoted hundreds of hours of his time to the Colonials program-coaching and evaluating players for the organization, over the years.   He is always one of the first to volunteer to help-whether it is providing banquet facilities for Colonial events or rooming for USA Hockey visiting dignitaries, through his job as manager for the Grand Summit Hotel. 

Chris seems to be following in his dad's footsteps, in his endeavor to give back to his community, through "Heart of a Giant."

Coach Mark never asks for much in return, but would love it if our fellow Colonials would consider voting for his son, as Chris seeks to give back to his community, too!  Like father, like son-not a bad lesson to learn from hard work and volunteering!

LET THE FUN BEGIN! THE NEW JERSEY COLONIALS 45TH SEASON BEGINS!

 

Welcome, families and players, to the 2016-17 New Jersey Colonials travel hockey season! This is a landmark year, as we enter our 45th Season of Colonials hockey!

We began in 1971, as a small recreational club- the Morris County Millionaires; then went on to embrace travel hockey and had a few name changes along the way: The Morris County All Stars; The Morris County Colonials.  Finally, in 2003, we reincorporated, adopting our most renown name:

THE NEW JERSEY COLONIALS!  

Our organization began with a mere 10 teams, back in the day, growing to our current level of 36 teams, which includes programs for boys, girls and developmental hockey! We have over 650 players, spanning the ages of 5-19!

We would like to take the opportunity to wish all of our families, both returning and new, the very best for upcoming season! This year will see you renew friendships; play nail-biter games; travel to tournaments, near and far; challenge yourselves to do your personal best and excel in the game you love to play-ice hockey!  

Good luck to all our players in the new season! With our storied history in mind, we hope to see all of you make a little hockey history of your own!  Let the games begin!
