A LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR
First of all, I want to congratulate all of our teams that played in our Spring Soiree this last weekend! I was so honored and excited to see so many of our teams and coaches working hard to improve with each match. A special congrats goes out to all of our medalists:
Also, a special thanks to all of our volunteers throughout the weekend. We could not have pulled this tournament off without your help! We do apologize for the delay in getting the Volunteer sheet out there and will make sure that you all get more time to plan for next year's tournament weekend.
As for the future of the club, our vision for the club remains the same, to commit to training and leading these young ladies to become better volleyball players and better people. We will do our best to do this with integrity and honesty. We want to continue to make Amarillo Juniors one of the premier clubs in the Sun Country Region and nationally. This doesn't mean that it will be easy or mistake free, but you have my word that we will never stop trying to improve the experience for our coaches, players, and parents.
Lastly, I just want to take this time to personally thank all of you who have made my family and I feel so welcome over our first 3 weeks with Amarillo Juniors. We are so honored to be a part of this great club and look forward to working with all of you for many, many years to come.
Thanks and God bless,
