Boosters Announcements

 

The TJ Soccer Boosters would like to bid one final farewell to the Class of 2016. Best of Luck in all that you do and everywhere you go! We look forward to seeing you anytime that you may return "home."

 One Last Look at 2015. For a limited time, see “Jaguars In The News” at the right for a final trip down memory lane before the stories of the 2016 Jaguars & Lady Jaguars begin to be created & written.

 

THE 2016 SEASON BEGINS:

2016 Officers. The officers for upcoming season are Brian Kane, President; Mike Lutz, Vice-President; Kelly O’Brien, Treasurer; Mike McCormick, Secretary

2016 Dues. The dues for this season will be $100 per player. As an added bonus, members will now enjoy a complimentary copy of the 2016 TJ Soccer Media Guide. The payment deadline for dues will be announced soon, but likely will be just prior to the start of the regular season in early September. A fund raiser to help defer the cost of individual member’s dues will again be held…. Details coming soon.

Next Boosters Meeting. The next boosters meeting will be held Sunday July 10 at 7:00PM at the Bruceton Grill. There is much to be done to prepare for the fall season. Please join us!

PLEASE HELP: At this time, most of the critical leadership positions have been filled for this season. HOWEVER, a number of long-term boosters are in their final year before graduation, so additional help to learn their roles is crucial to the future success of the boosters organization. And please remember that A LITTLE effort by everyone will mean A LOT to our Jaguars and Lady Jaguars. THANKS!
