JCS Athletic Department is proud to announce that Grady Cothran ('24) has been selected to be a part of the FHSAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for the 2022-23 school year. This is the first time JCS has had representation on the committee, and we are looking forward to Grady's involvement.
The SAAC is a 16-member statewide committee made up of member school Student-Athletes that are in their Junior or Senior year of High School. The purpose of the committee is to provide a voice for student-athletes within the FHSAA governance structure, in the following areas:
- Current issues facing student-athletes
- Input regarding rules and regulations
- Input on FHSAA special initiatives (e.g. sportsmanship campaign)
- Promotion of a positive image of the student-athlete
Grady began preparing this summer by attending a Student Leadership Seminar in Ft. Myers in July and drafting his essay answers for his nomination application. Throughout the application, Grady references his time on the JCS Swim team, working at JCS Vacation Bible School as a group leader and being a Camp Counselor during STEM Camp this summer. Each position has aided in developing his leadership skills on communication, conflict resolution and the balance between work and fun. As Grady steps into his role on the SAAC, he hopes to make an impact in all sports on the student level, but specifically, with Swim. He hopes to create a training program and educate coaches and student-athletes on rules and regulations.
It's Homecoming Week at JCS! The students have been enjoying theme days and on Friday we welcome our JCS Community to join in on the school spirit. Come by West Campus from 4:30-6pm and enjoy the annual Booster Club Tailgate. This is a free event for our families, so we hope to see you there! At 5pm we'll send off the Varsity Football team before kick-off at JHS at 6:30pm.
Alumni - check in with Hannah Bartz at the Alumni (white) tent and get your admission ticket.
We are just one week away from our Annual Golf Tournament! This year's funds will be benefitting the JCS Booster Club and the JCS Annual Fund. Through your participation in past tournaments, the Booster Club has been able to purchase many items that have positively impacted our Athletic Department; Pixellot Cameras for livestreaming, provide two graduating seniors with a scholarship towards higher education, assist with expenses for post season travel, contribute to expenses for Athletic Community Events and so much more!
There is still room to register for this year's tournament! We would love to have you join us for a round of golf or even lunch & the live auction. More information on the event can be found here: Jupiter Christian School Golf Tournament.
