2014-15 season is about to begin in the Wells Fargo Dimond Park Field House on
Here are some things to look
forward to and keep in mind for Juneau Soccer Club this year:
Please refer to the JSC Membership page and JSC Schedules page for greater
detail. Attendance of these sessions is
not required, but we do know that the more a player gets touches on the ball,
the better they become!
to the JSC Schedules page
for one’s age-group for their specific JSC Soccer schedule. We use Google calendars which for many
smart-phones is easy to add and follow.
When a JSC player cannot attend their weekend team practice, they should
contact their team coach in advance and let them know. Late Saturday and Sunday practice times
should allow members to participate in JSC programming and still participate in
supplemental P&R programming. Starting in January our programming times and days in the DPFH changes, look for the January-May schedules to be posted in late December. Summer schedules are typically posted in mid-May.
Goalkeeper training will be
held during the weekend for our JSC Competitive Program age-groups (JSC 05-97). This is a supplemental training for
those interested in Goalkeeper training; players should still attend their
team practice as well.
order to help continue the technical development for our players within
the club, JSC will be using the iSoccer technical assessment and online
video training platform to help improve and track technical development. This
is a great tool for players to utilize with and away from their team. JSC 05-96 competitive players will have full
access to iSoccer. Expect to
hear more about this program this year!
The fall JSC 3v3 World Cup will
occur over the weekend of November 22/23.
Look for details soon from your local school, or check back on the
JSC webpage closer to that date.
We'll look to have our
spring exchange with Whitehorse in April. This will be an event our JSC
05-01’s will look to attend in Whitehorse.
Make sure to attend team meetings so as not to miss this event.
We’ll look to have our
summer exchange with Whitehorse at the end of June. This time Whitehorse comes to us and
plays in “friendlies” with us. Make
sure to attend team meetings so as not to miss this event.
JSC will once again look
into bringing knowledgeable guest coaches into town in late June for a
local camp experience for Juneau soccer players.
JSC is focused exclusively
on the Academy/Development/Competitive team programs. We are no longer
associated with JDHS and TMHS high school interscholastic programs. The role of JSC at the HS ages is to
continue to offer training opportunities to this age-group regardless of
their HS affiliation.
In the summer, we hope to
host another Sister City Shootout outdoor tournament with Whitehorse teams
and will try to attract teams from Sitka and Ketchikan as well.
Competitive teams often plan
ahead for summer travel opportunities.
Each age-group works collectively (coaches, players and parents) to
make travel decisions. It takes a
lot of work and effort to travel out of Juneau - make sure you attend
meetings to stay in the know about your team.
Soccer Club is primarily a volunteer organization. A successful year putting on
events and running fundraisers requires lots of help from club members. Check
the club website for ways you can volunteer and contact us if you have any
questions or concerns.
Registration Is Open for the 2014-2015 Season
In order to simplify the
registration process, the Juneau Soccer Club maintains an online registration
for the season.
There are two forms of payment for registration: credit card
or check. If you choose to pay by check, please bring it to the Dimond
Park Field House with your paperwork.
Please DO NOT MAIL THE CHECK. In the past, soccer club
participants were able to pay a portion of their registration fees at the
beginning of the season, and then fundraise for the remaining balance, this practice
has changed. All dues will be due at the time of registration. This is similar
to Gastineau Swim Club, Gastineau Little League, Juneau Youth Football League
and even CBJ Parks and Rec. The reasoning behind this is multi-faceted; 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.
Please register based on your child's actual birth date. In the event that they
"play-up", register your child in the age-group according to
their birth date and then contact us via e-mail. Please DO NOT
ENTER AN IMPROPER BIRTH DATE as this complicates things later.
Please refer to our play up policies noted in our Policies and Procedures
before making a request or contact the Director of Coaching listed on the
JSC website under coaches.
Upon completion of your registration, you will be asked to print out and sign needed
forms. During the first two weeks of JSC sessions, we will have
someone collecting forms and payment at the entryway of the Field House.
These forms will need to be handed in prior to participation. If you sign
up but do not attend practice until after the second week, please drop off
the forms at the JSC drop box located at the Field House.
