GSJ News — Congrats to Ellissa Small

by Grand Strand Juniors on May 12, 2016

A HUGE congratulations to GSJ Standout Ellissa Small, her family, Brittany Drew of Carolina Forest HS and the whole GSJ Family.  Today she signed to play for Lees McRae College, the Hogwarts of North Carolina.  She has been playing for GSJ for the last 4 seasons and a primary example of what hard work in and out of the gym will allow.  We’re super excited to watch her play at Lees McRae and her future with the program.  What a great day for Grand Strand Juniors!!

by Grand Strand Juniors on April 27, 2016

Hard to believe we have reached the end of the season for a group of teams. I am in contact often with other club directors. When we reflect on the season a common theme for this year has been that all have had to face challenges like never before.

I am a firm believer that overcoming the challenges are where the great stories are written. Challenges, whatever they might be, are stepping stones to opportunities for those who persevere. Thanks to all of you who have met the challenges head on and refused to let them define who you are.

Club Payments
We have several players with outstanding club payments. We will be contacting you over the next few days to arrange payments. For any questions about your balance please contact Julie Sing at 843-283-7579.

Extended season
We have been able to form 2 extended season teams. We can still use 1-2 players for the 14U (ages 12-14) team. You do not have to be a current GSJ member. Cost is $150 and practices start next week. Coach Jason will handle the 15U team and Coach Sam and Coach Sing will handle the 14U. Email any questions.

Coastal Classic June 4/5 Help
We have the Coastal Classic June 4-5 and will need help with various jobs including set-up and take-down, ticket and t-shirt sales, and coaches check-in. Please contact Julie at 843-283-7579 to volunteer. Coaches will coordinate with teams for the players set-up and take down.

Indigo Physical Therapy is having an Open House for its new NMB location. Please drop by as GSJ will provide a $350 scholarship (no cost) drawing during the event. No charge for the drawing but you Must be present to win.
