It's all about the kids! Parents play an important role in sport: current or former athlete, coach, fan, motivator, role model or critic. Studies have shown that family members may influence an athlete’s involvement and achievement in sport more than coaches. Parents also are the first and most critical agents at socializing sports.
JCSA is a 100% parent volunteer run 501(c)3 non-profit organization and we need all parents support to make it a success for the youth of Jersey City. Please consider volunteering as a head coach, assistant coach, team manager or team assistant to make your child's experience the best it can be. To learn how to be a coach, assistant or team manager, click here.
Registration fees only cover the basics required to run the organization. Several fundraisers are also required to keep the club running every year and we need parent to support to keep the club operating. Since the club is a 501(c)3 non-profit, parents can donate a fully tax deductible donation. One of these fundraisers is offering all parents the opportunity to buy apparel and customize it with their players NAME and NUMBER. A small percentage of every sale goes to fund JCSA and keep our organization strong. Please consider volunteering and supporting our club and make it the best it can be for the youth of Jersey City.
It should go without saying that it does not benefit your child, your team, or help the coach if parents are yelling from the sidelines! We play the whistle and the referee has the last say. The rules are different for younger age levels so we encourage you to get familiar with the laws of the game here.
