by Grand Strand Juniors on March 24, 2015

Hello GSJ Family,

Hard to believe only a few weeks left for some of our teams. Each year
presents it own challenges, successes, and sometimes frustrations and
failures. Much like life, we have to learn to deal with situations
unforeseen and look forward. Pressure can either bust pipes, or make
diamonds and gold is refined by fire. As we sift through what was the
2015 season, lets look at those things that helped us grow.

I am so proud of our amazing young ladies and their families. Our
success goes well beyond the volleyball court.

AAU Extended Season:
Tryouts will take place this Thursday from 6-8 at the new facility.
Players needing to be placed on a team must attend or have spoken to
Coach Sing for a release. If your team (minimum of 8 players) has
committed to AAU’s then no tryout is needed.

Hello All!!

Happy Spring to all you GSJ families! Here are just some friendly reminders of things that are coming up in the near future…

1.) PLEASE remember to register for dragon boat and continue your fundraising. We will have a team practice for both of our boats on TUESDAY APRIL 21ST from 5:30-6:30 at The Market Common. I strong encourage everyone to come to this practice as well as bring their waiver so that the day of the race will be a little less chaotic. Also if you are done fundraising your $150 you can give that to me that day as well, but you will still have up until race day to continue your fundraising if needed.

2.) I would also like to ask any parents that are interested to help with dragon boat as a paddler and fundraiser to contact me at We still need about 6-8 people between the two boats.

3.) We will have camp registration up on the website soon, so don’t forget to sign up for some awesome GSJ camps this summer!

4.) If anyone is looking for extra work over spring break Coastal Carolina Volleyball will be holding clinics at the HTC center on campus for $50 per session from 5-7 on March 30, 31st and April 1st. You can register at the door as well as online at

5.) If any families have any old towels that they would like to donate to the facility that would be greatly appreciated. These towels will be used by the girls to keep our new awesome gym to continue looking new and awesome :) !!

Thank you for everything that you all are doing to help the means of our program!!

Grand Strand Juniors Assistant Club Director
