New Registration Policy: All Fees Must Be Paid
Starting this year, all club fees must be paid up front and in full at first registration. There has also been a modest increase in fees for most age groups. Club President Tommy Penrose explains the reasons for these changes in his notice below.
Upcoming 2013-2014 News from our JSC President
Wow what a summer we've been having. I cannot remember a summer like this in my lifetime living in Juneau. I trust you have been enjoying the good weather and as much soccer as you can handle during this busy time of year. I know for me, as a father of three soccer club athletes we have been busy between practices, traveling, camps and such. I want to take this opportunity to thank Coach Dusenberry and all the JSC coaches for their dedicated work to making Juneau such a great place to play soccer for our young athletes.
The second reason I am writing this is to inform you of a policy change within the club. This change will affect everyone, and I hope you will be gracious and understanding. This is a change the Board does not take lightly or easily.
In the past, registering soccer club participants were able to pay a portion of their registration fees at the beginning of the season and fundraise the remaining portion. This is changing. All dues will be due at time of registration. This is similiar to Gastineau Swim Club, Gastineau Little League, Juneau Youth Football League and even CBJ Parks and Rec. The reasoning behind this is multifaceted, however the largest reason is due to book keeping. The amount of time and energy it takes our volunteer treasurers (Board and Team) is too great. Keep in mind any money in your athlete's account currently may be used to fund this upcoming season's fees. Just contact your team treasurer to make this happen. Additionally there will still be many fundraising opportunities throughout the year to fund travel, camps or next year's season fees. There are a couple of exceptions. Academy kids (08-10) will have two seasons with separate registrations and the fee will be $50 per season. The high school fees will be $175 for ATP registration and an additional $50 later.
I also need to share with you that there will be a fee increase this year. As with everything else in the nation, the price to operate a soccer club is increasing. Field house fees have increased, insurance has increased and the amount of funding from other sources is diminishing. Scholarships are still available on a need basis. Please check with your coach if you would like to apply for one. The amount of the increases are below. Thank you for your patience with us as we move forward this year. We look forward to another great season. If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Strikers Take Second at Mt. Hood Challenge
The Capital City Strikers Boys 99 team (mostly 9th graders) took second place out of sixteen silver division Premier League U15 teams in the Mount Hood Challenge soccer tournament near Portland, Oregon. The Strikers advanced to the final of the top flight when they defeated PacNW of Kent/Renton, Washington 3-0. The Strikers are coached by Troy Choquette.
They went toe-to-toe with the Eagles Soccer Club (Ventura County, California) in the championship game, out-playing them for long stretches at a time, but lost 2-1. The team finished 3-1 overall and outscored its opponents 11-4. In typical Strikers fashion, seven different players scored goals over the course of the tournament: Takumi Hebert (3), JJ Mosher (2), Kevyn Lo (2), Riley Olsen (1), Ben Undurraga (1), Salar Peirovi (1), and RJ Smallwood (1). When capturing the Alaska Airlines Cup earlier this year, nine different Strikers scored goals.
The team made it into the top flight “Blue” bracket by topping its four-team group with two preliminary round victories over Crossfire Premier Besagno of Redmond, Washington (4-0) and Pacific FC Blue of Vancouver/SW Washington (3-2). The game against Pacific FC Blue was won on a goal scored with only seconds to go. JJ Mosher scored two goals in the first half before Pacific Blue fought back to tie it up. Then Takumi Hebert received a through ball and threaded a shot between two recovering defenders as time ran out.
The Strikers defense came up strong throughout the tournament. They only allowed four goals for the tournament. Riley Olsen made several clutch blocks and distributed the ball up field with precision. Eli Gregory and Ben Undurraga made made several clutch clearances and Michael White bottled up the middle and consistently cleared the ball out of trouble. RJ Smallwood made a goal-saving sliding clearance with about five minutes left in the Strikers' exciting 3-2 win over Pacific Blue. Full story and game-by-game accounts.
JSC Capital City Strikers (99 Boys) Win 2013 Alaska Airlines Cup
The Juneau Soccer Club's 99 Boys team beat the Eclipse Phoenix of Fairbanks to take the U15 Alaska Airlines Cup championship on Sunday, June 2. The game was tied 1-1 after regular time and stayed that way through 20 minutes of overtime. It was decided by a penalty kick shootout. The Strikers fell behind in the shootout 2-0 and needed to hit two straight and get a Fairbanks miss in order to stay alive. JJ Mosher did his part by hitting the first do or die shot. The next Phoenix player missed high. Then Ben Undurraga made his shot to extend the shootout. When Fairbanks hit its next try it was up to Sherrod Miller to keep it going and he delivered with a shot into the upper right corner of the net. The next Fairbanks try was smothered by goalie John Seymour and Eli Gregory stepped up and hit the game winner for Juneau. John Seymour recieved the Ina K award for his outstanding play and sportsmanship. The Strikers are coached by Troy Choquette. Full story and game-by-game accounts.

JSC 99 Girls Take Second in San Diego Tourney
The JSC 99 Girls finished second in a tourney in San Diego in June. They went 2-1-1 overall and lost 2-1 in the championship game to Encinitas Express.
JSC 99 Girls: Front laying down: Hailley Jones; Front row left to right: Anna Rivest, Haleigh DiCarlo, Leila Lambardo Robinson, Elena Bryson, Kaylah Duncan, Star Barger, Marlena Romanoff; Back row left to right: Coach John Newell, Georgia Robinson, Erika Holst, Sydney Holst, Emma Kaelke, Ally Lindley, Zoey Kriegmont, Meghan Penrose, Kalianna Lewis, Coach Erik Holst.
The final game was very evenly matched with both teams having shots on goal. JSC had more possession and would have had some easy breakaways by its forwards if not for a standout defender that was able to recover and force Juneau into some long shots that went wide. The Express opened the scoring just a few minutes into the game with a good shot on goal that Hailley Jones, at full extension, just got her fingers to but it wasn’t enough to stop the ball from getting through. Just a few minutes later, Anna Rivest collected a ball in front of the net and blasted it in to tie the score and the half ended 1-1.
In the second half it was more of the same with the ball going back and forth throughout. About midway one of the Express players picked up a ball at the top of the Juneau goal box and chipped a 20 yard shot over everyone that found the back of the net. The Juneau girls were extremely tired by this point due to the heat and the fact that it was their second game of the day and Express's first. But they pressed hard for the last 15 minutes and had numerous shots go just high or just wide. Express barely got the ball past half over that stretch but, despite the pressure, Juneau just couldn't find the tying goal and had to settle for second. Full story and game-by-game accounts.
