Jupiter Sharks Volleyball Club

 

Dear Volleyball Players and Parents:

We are excited to introduce you to JUPITER SHARKS VOLLEYBALL CLUB!        We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.   As a registered AAU Volleyball Club, we are dedicated to developing athletes to reach their full potential, and to fostering amateur sports competition in a supportive environment.    We are excited to share our vision for the upcoming club volleyball season with you, and invite you to join us on this journey. 

First, and foremost, we want to help all players develop their game, as well as important life skills, in a positive, yet challenging, environment.  We believe that every player is an important contributor to the success of the team.   The only way athletes can improve, is through practice and experience.  We want to offer everyone the opportunity to hone their skills, not only during practice, but during competitive matches.  We have high expectations for the development of every athlete.

Additionally, we welcome parental involvement and suggestions.  We’d like parents to be contributors in team building efforts, fundraising, chaperoning, and travel plans.  Also, we strive to make club volleyball an affordable endeavor for everyone.  There will be no tryout or evaluation fees.  An installment plan to pay fees will be offered.  The fees cover instruction and practice, trainer and employee salaries, facility rentals, tournament entrance fees, team equipment, and uniforms (warm-up jacket and pants, 2 uniform jerseys, 2 pairs of spandex, hoodie and a tournament bag).  Fees do NOT include food, transportation, lodging, or fan entrance fees for tournaments. 

Additional team apparel will be offered for purchase.  Players and parents will have many choices of logos and designs to support their team.  We have direct access to the equipment needed to personalize t-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants, towels, etc.

We will practice in the Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens areas.  Throughout the season, we plan to play a minimum of 8 tournaments.  Additional tournaments may be added for advanced teams.  Please look for a follow-up email with instructions on registering to become a Jupiter Shark!  If you have any questions, please feel free to email us, jupitersharks@gmail.com or call                                                                               (561) 818-4013 / (407) 492-5644.  We look forward to working with you for a fun and successful season!

Sincerely,

Jupiter Sharks Volleyball Club
