SJA Converts to All On-Line payments

Effective Fall 2019 with basketball registrations, the SJA BoD voted to require all payments on-line with a debit or credit card. This change will save SJA volunteers from unnecessary time spent collecting and transferring paper checks to the Treasurer for deposit, as well saving the time spent tracking and following up with reminders when commitments to pay by check aren’t met in a timely manner.

Basketball season is nearly upon us

Believe it or not, basketball season is just around the corner.  Gyms are rented beginning in October, and we have volunteers for head coaches for all teams. The SJA Board will designate coaches and assistants before the end of the month. See the SJA web site if you're interested in filling out an application to coach. 

Please spread the word to those who may be new to the parish or otherwise not aware of our programs.

Announcing Volleyball Open Gym

Front Royal Christian School has invited SJA girls to an open gym for volleyball on Thursday, July 17 at FRCS, from 10:00 - 11:30. 

It's an opportunity meet the FRCS coaches & AD, play some volleyball, and enable FRCS to assess their turnout numbers and level of play they have to work with. 

This will be an important event to attend if your daughter is interested in participation. They need a solid gauge of turnout to make decisions about ages that can participate and teams that will be fielded, etc. 

THIS IS NOT AN SJA TEAM, so we cannot assume that walking on at a later time will be an option. If you are definitely interested but cannot attend, let me know and I'll convey the information to FRCS.
