Changes to the Juneau Soccer Club Schedules for
March, April and May
Please make sure to look at the latest schedules for the Juneau Soccer Club age groups on the Juneau Soccer Club website: www.juneausoccer.org/practice.htm
For some background, historically the club just ran team practices on the weekends from March to May, and all other programs were not scheduled due to limitations of coach and gym availability. Over the past few years, JSC has tried to add in extra weeknight skill sessions whenever possible. A nice consistent schedule for everyone is always our goal, but not always a possibility.
March is a very difficult month to schedule for a number of reasons. One, high school spring sports take over all the week night time slots in the field house. Two, March and April school gym use is at a premium with adult volleyball, P&R basketball, Hooptime and various school-based programs using the gyms. Three, several of our JSC coaches are involved as coaches for the soccer programs at TMHS and JDHS, so availability on their part is limited. Four, the Juneau School District has their Spring Break in March, and we usually have the two weekends associated with that off. So what youíll find this year during March is that our competitive and pre-competitive programs will run only on some Saturdays. With the exception of March 3rd, our developmental programs (JSC 08/09/10) will not be running for the rest of the month.
In April and May this year, we were able to get back into the field house a month sooner than we historically have been able to. We were given time on Mondays and Wednesday nights. Youíll find on the schedules that we will be able to run weeknight sessions for the JSC 07/06 developmental academy, the 06/05/04 pre-comp program, and the 04-00 competitive teams. After the JSC 3v3 World Cup event April 5/6th, our weekend sessions will move outdoors. At this time we have not received our available dates/times from the City of Juneau to be able schedule. It is our understanding we will hear from them in the next week or so. Please check the JSC web page in a couple weeks for the outdoor session schedule.
For those with children in the JSC 08/09/10 group, at this time we do not have the facilities or coaches available to run this program during March, April or May. We look forward to resuming this program outside in June.
Again, please make sure to look at the latest schedules for the Juneau Soccer Club age groups on the Juneau Soccer Club website: www.juneausoccer.org/practice.htm

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
