SAS December Newsletter

December is the JHSC month of TEAMWORK!

Teamwork represents all the ways, both big and small, that we work together and communicate in order to accomplish things far greater than we could accomplish alone. Supporting the success of others is as important as our own success. This is evidenced by our actions and daily practices, and understanding their effects on others.

FUN drives participation and sustains our efforts, making it the most important aspect of a healthy youth-sports culture.
TEAMWORK represents all the ways that we work together and communicate in order to accomplish things far greater than we could alone.
COMMITMENT means striving to be at one’s best, overcoming challenges, and reaching goals to strengthen both the club and the individual.
SPORTSMANSHIP extends beyond sport, teaching youth to be fair, inclusive, respectful, humble in victory, and gracious in defeat.
COMPETITION focuses on the whole process of preparations, as an athlete and a person, to be prepared to perform for anything you choose.


How are JHSC athletes practicing TEAMWORK this month? are they not?!

If nothing else, 2020 has taught us how many ways we can come "together" as a community while being distant. Fortunately for JHSC, our sports are founded upon individual performance and team support. While Covid-19 has presented many challenges, it has also made us realize how much stronger we are when we work together!

Whether it be wearing masks, respecting personal space, or finding new ways to do something we've never thought to change, we at JHSC could not be more proud of the TEAMWORK our athletes have already shown this season.



Holiday Card Contestants - THANK YOU for your submissions!

We asked JHSC athletes to submit holiday card artwork that depicted one, or all five, of our JHSC values! See our athletes' incredible submissions here.
