  • Urbandale's only all-volunteer coached and all-volunteer run soccer club!
J-Hawk SC games start the weekend after Labor Day. All U4 through U10 schedules may be found on the links below. The club will have two festivals this Saturday, August 29th. The U4-U6 festival will be held on Upper Walker Johnston Field, west of the playground and east of the adult softball fields, from 9 until 10. The U7-U10 festival will be held from 10:30 until 11:30 on Lower Walker Johnston Field, west of the Urbandale Police Department and east of the creek. U7-U10 parents, please do not park in designated police employee parking spots. The club will have volunteers at a variety of fun stations during the festival and will provide a snack and drink at the end. 
 
The J-Hawk SC, an all-volunteer club, is again proud to offer the lowest prices in the Des Moines area. ALL U4 through U10 games are played at Walker Johnston Park in Urbandale (8800 Douglas Ave.). Weather permitting, games will start the last weekend in August. If it is possible, please register through the above link on the Active.com website, as this helps our volunteers organize teams more easily. Otherwise, print out the registration form on the below link to register. We are pleased to offer U13/U14 recreational for the first time and also are excited about offering U8 coed with goalkeepers, after a successful season of doing so in the spring. One of the great things about the J-Hawk SC is that we are able to innovate and make changes as needed to improve the experience for as many children as possible. 
 
The J-Hawk SC is extremely pleased that the Arbitrator found that both ISA and the Greater Des Moines Junior Soccer League have been unreasonable over the last four plus years in denying our club membership in their organizations. This will have little impact in the operation of our club for the younger age groups, but will provide more opportunity for potential league play at the U9 and above age groups. 
 
 
J-Hawk Soccer Club U14 Boys Capture Iowa Rush Champions Cup Title
Congratulations to the J-Hawk SC's U14 Boys Tournament Team for winning the club's first tournament playing against premier level select teams. The J-Hawks beat select teams from Chaska, Minnesota and Prior Lakes, Minnesota in pool play, and upset the reigning South Dakota State Cup champions in an exciting 3-2 finals match, which the boys won on penalty kicks, after finishing regular time with a score of 2-2. The J-Hawks are a volunteer coached team. They displayed a great deal of resilience, as they lost to the South Dakota team, DASC Spitfire (out of Sioux Falls), on the day before the final. These boys show what can be done when hard work combines with selflessness and fundamentals. Pictured (first row, left to right) Alex Economos, Amar Sivac, Tristan Lovell, Caden Greening, Alan Imamovic, and Tyler Sochit.

J-Hawk SC U14 Boys Win KC Tournament
Congratulations to the J-Hawk SC's U14 boys team for recently winning the Championship Division of the Lee's Summit Soccer Association's tournament. The boys outscored four KC area select teams by a combined 32-2. Earlier this season the J-Hawks became the first team from our club to be selected to participate in the premier division of the JUSC tournament, where they lost to the JUSC U14 boys premier team 3-2, beat a team from the Omaha Football Club 3-1, and lost to the Burlington Soccer Association's premier team 1-0, on a penalty kick. In the first tournament of the season, the boys played in the U15 division of the Iowa Rush tournament, where they beat a team from the Des Moines Menace 4-1, lost to a Cedar Rapids U15 premier team 3-0, and beat a select team from Altoona 4-1. Even more important, referees and opposing coaches frequently complimented these boys not only for their abilities, but their outstanding sportsmanship. Great Job J-Hawks!

The Fifty-four (54) goals scored were the most scored during the current freshmen coach's nine years at UHS.

Finally, two freshmen J-Hawk SC players had successful seasons as members of the Junior Varsity team at Johnston High School this past spring. Congratulations to all of these girls, who are showing the result of fundamentals, hard work, effort, and great attitudes. They provide examples of excellence and character for younger players in the J-Hawk Soccer Club to emulate.
