Spring Registration Info

After receiving a number of questions concerning our website and our past and future use of the Academy format we realized that there may be some confusion. We would like to clarify that JASA is no longer using the "Academy” format for any of our age groups and for the foreseeable future will be using the model more closely aligned with what many of you were used to seeing. We apologize for any confusion; we are in the process of removing it from our website and updating all of our information.

Because of this, we have decided to extend our sign-ups until February 25that 11:59 PM to allow time to sign-up for anyone who was unaware of these changes. Registration can be completed by clicking on the button below or by going to https://www.tinyurl.com/JASAReg

Below you will find a Video Walkthrough Link of the registration process.  Please note that the Video was made prior to this season and some screens may not appear the same.  

As part of our step back from the Academy format we will also be rolling out some new training initiatives for coaches to ensure players receive the same level of training across all age groups. We will release more information about this in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions please feel free to email us or message us on Facebook and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing everyone on the soccer fields in the coming weeks.

Sincerely,
JASA Board of Trustees
