J-Hawk SC will offer U4 ($25), U5 & U6 ($30), U7 coed, U7/U8 girls and U8 coed ($40), U9/U10 girls and coed ($50), U11/U12 girls and coed ($60), U13/U14 girls and coed ($65), and U15 coed and girls ($65). Please note that age groups are determined by birth year in the fall, due to USSF changes. For instance, U4 are born in 2013, U5 are born in 2014,
and so forth.
Just write "scholarship" on the printable form and mail it in if you need a scholarship.
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.

Even more important, referees and opposing coaches frequently complimented these boys not only for their abilities, but their outstanding sportsmanship. Great Job J-Hawks!
