Depending on where you will be based you may be closer to Philly than NYC. Either way, there are no teams that regularly meet to train in New Jersey. Most teams run around Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx and practice kicks between posts made from umbrellas and traffic cones...some more fortunate teams meet in Randall's Island which is even further away from NJ. Dunno what they do down in Philly but I can't imagine it involves too many nutritionists or ice baths either.

Buy yourself some good sneakers and hit the roads my will not stay fit training with GAA teams in NYC.

A bit harsh there Shinkicker but probably true. ehu09 I would say unless you are living/working in the Newark/Hoboken/Jersey City area forget about training in NYC and if you not living in the Cherry Hill/Camden area forget about Philly. If you are a good player some teams might bring you up for a match but it'll be too far for training unless you are close by.
