There are a lot of Jr programs out there, we here at TJHN are here to tell you about a great opportunity, and an absolute hidden gem in the Jr hockey community.
Cliff Graziano is the NJ Renegades Owner/GM & Head Coach of their EHL Premier Jr Team. He is one of the most loyal, honest, hard working guys in the business. He has been doing this for almost 20 years as a coach after a successful collegiate career at Penn State. He went through this as a player and has recently put his son Nick through the ranks from Renegades all-time leading scorer to Team Maryland’s 2021-2022 leading scorer to playing pro over in France this past season.
The Jr landscape has changed over the years from the time the Renegades were in the legendary Met League to now the EHLP. Below is a lengthy alumni list of players he has coached with his Renegades program and the programs he did previously.

Former player Matt Beattie who was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks and went on to win a NCAA Div I National Championship with Yale University played for Coach Graz at the Renegades and continues to support the program, had this to say about his coach and program; “Coach Graz was the 1st coach I had that let me really spread my wings and fly. We all want to win games, but his concern has always been about developing each player to their maximum potential and advancing them. Coach Graz and his Renegades program changed my life, my game, and my training habits from day 1. That allowed me to excel and advance to collegiate and professional hockey. If you’re a Jr player that truly wants a better future it would be in your best interest to contact Coach Graz about his Renegades program.”
The Rens skate out of a beautiful facility – SportsCare Arena in Randolph, NJ. They have a beautiful locker room, video room, the best HockeyTV setup and much more including more ice availability than any program around. They only have a few opportunities left for the 23-24 season at the forward and defenseman positions along with billet opportunities.
