Hi SAJO Families.
Our annual board meeting to elect new officers will be held on Wednesday, July 22nd at the Stillwater public library from 6:30-7:30. As always this will be a public meeting with a chance to learn more about our program and ask questions. The purpose of this meeting will be to elect new members to the board with board positions assigned at a later date. The SAJO board currently has 11 director positions and a few member at large positions. At this time we have several positions to fill.Vice president Finance Fund-raising ??
This year the board has decided to encourage people to join the SAJO board by offering a discount of $200 to those members who have girls in the program. This will be an annual incentive. If you or someone you know has the time and interest in joining the SAJO board, please lets us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, reaching out to a board member or come to the meeting on Wednesday.
At the annual meeting you will have a chance to introduce yourself to the current board and then elections will occur.
Each electee must commit to a 2 or 3 year term to keep the synergy for the program.
Please consider joining us to help keep the program moving in the right direction. In the 9 years since I joined SAJO we have grown each year and hired great coaching. The work that goes on behind the scenes has gone from 1-2 people managing it to 12+ because of this growth. We want SAJO to be a good volleyball solution for the Stillwater area for years to come. A strong working board is the only way to ensure that will happen.
We are a Non-Profit organization and this is a great volunteer opportunity. Serving on the board satisfies the volunteer requirement for the season.
Please consider joining us!
Sincerely,John Green SAJO President
SAJO not only develops volleyball players, we develop teammates. As a player, coach, or fan, you can have a great impact on your teammates.
A good teammate does more than work on serving, passing, and hitting - she considers the importance of being a good teammate on and off the court. As we head into this season, challenge yourself to be the best teammate you can be.
1. Be trustworthy.
2. Be encouraging. Fight for and celebrate each other's successes.
3. Be honest and courageous.
4. Remember that your teammates are people too. Value your temamates for who they are.
Enjoy the rest of the season!
Players and Parents:
Other practices are still on unless you have been notified by your coach. If you are not able to attend, please notify your coach. Thank you!
SAJO typically cancels practices/events when the Stillwater Area School District closes due to weather. However, we ask that parents use their discretion as to the severity of the weather and safety of travel. Please communicate to your coaches if you will miss or be late for practice.
We will continue to monitor and post updates on the website if practices or games are cancelled.
