Updates Galore

We have lots of Updates to share with you. Please read the entire news posting.  Emails will be sent tonight as well.

Online Registration

Our Registration is ongoing, through our Online Portal, from Now till August 5th. If you go to our website you can click on the menu link at the top of the page called ONLINE REG it will take you to the registration site.  We have put together a video tutorial on you tube available HERE. The registration process takes roughly 10-15 minutes depending on the number of children you are registering.

On a side note with regard to registration we are hearing form individuals that if they attempt to put in a "Secondary Contact" it causes issues with the registration process.  We suggest not putting that information in at this point as we work to remedy this issue.  If you leave the "Secondary Contact" portion blank it allows you to proceed as normal.

Onsite Registration

We will be hosting a couple ON-SITE Registrations as well that will incorporate our Online registration forms but you can also pay by Cash or Check if desired.

Those dates will be Tonight, Wednesday, July 12 from 6-8 PM at the Plain City Library and also on Saturday, July 15th from 10am - 3pm also at the Plain City Library.

Fundraising

We are actively fundraising for our Field Fund which will eventually allow us to purchase land for our forever home.  These Fundraisers are designed to not make you sell things to the public but allow you to Dine out at various restaurants in the area and those restaurants have agreed to donate back to our organization at varrying percentages based on your bill.  Please check your emails and our facebook page for further details in the near future!  Some of the Various restaurants that have come on board with us so far are Jan and Tony's Pizza in Plain City, Chipotle of Dublin (Avery Road) and Buffalo Wild Wings of Dublin (Avery Road).  Again more information on these fundraisers are forthcoming!

 

2017 Fall Registration Information

Dear JASA Families:

It’s time for another season of soccer in Plain City!  This will be JASA’s second season at the new facility on SR 161 and will have more usable space after we removed the remaining target greens and a line of fence posts.  We are continuing to improve the facility each week.

We’ve made many modifications to the fall 2017 JASA program.  You spoke and we listened. These modifications reflect the input that we received from the survey following the spring season and from changes instituted by US Soccer.  

2017 JAHS Soccer Camp

Here is information from Coach Lanka regarding this summer's JAHS Soccer Camp.

Last year was our biggest turnout (by far) with 120+ campers.  Honestly, it was a bit of a shocker as it was 50 more kids than we had ever had.  This year, we will definitely need to prepare for higher numbers.  That said, I'm hoping we meet that number again this year!

Our camp dates will be Monday, July 24th through Thursday, July 27th (with Friday, July 28thset as our rain date).  All other information can be seen in the attachment and below:

The coaches have already been thinking about changes to our camp from multiple sets of valuable feedback (including smaller groups, more time on-ball, less lines, etc.) and hope this year will be the best yet!

Camp Flyer is located HERE.  Parents can mail in a hard copy registration and/or register online at the link below:

Sorry for the confusion and thank you to all those who contacted me about the youngins!
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Have a wonderful summer and we will see you in late July!

2 Items of Note

Good Afternoon JASA Families!



2 items of Note that we hope you will give your utmost attention!~

1. JASA End of Season Survey

2. Work day at Fields.


1. If you have a moment and can answer our questions we value your input! We are conducting an end of season survey.

As you know, there have been a lot of changes at JASA this year. We only exist with support from the community and our families, so we want to get your feedback as we plan for the future. We want to get your input on where JASA is, and where we are going, among other questions that we’d like to know. Positive feedback and suggestions are welcomed. Constructive criticism is welcomed as well, providing it is aimed at building up and not tearing down. Please remember there are many people who give their spare time, energy and effort to this organization, they are volunteers and do the best they can. To do so, we are asking that each family complete the survey, which you can access at this link. (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JASA2017) Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey before June 1, 2017. The JASA Board values your input!



2. This coming Saturday, June 3rd, a local landscaping company will be working to remove these target greens, however we will need 20 volunteers to help with this effort. We will be moving sod and dirt, so anticipate heavy lifting and getting dirty. We will begin this Saturday morning, June 3rd, at 8:30 AM and work until 1:00 PM. Lunch will be provided by Jan and Tony's Pizza! If you could commit to this effort with a couple of hours, half the day, or even all day it would be appreciated.
