Coach's Corner
Thanks to everyone for your volunteer hours and for helping make the Jupiter Qualifier a successful tournament for the town of Jupiter ... your help was much appreciated.

I also want to pass along a special thanks to all our parents this year for your help with the team. The support you are giving to the team in coordinating events, snacks, keeping game statistics, keeping score/time clock during the games, submitting articles for the Jupiter Courrier, helping out at practices (e.g., "parent knockout" is a big hit) has been outstanding. Keddy and I are very grateful and appreciate having such great team parents!
