Players’ Association

It’s All About Your Involvement!

What has the President and his constituents done with your JPA funds?

From the JPA President
The JPA is an organization that allows any and all players to come up with ideas to better our community and our individual organization as well as raise money for families, businesses, volunteers, and facilities who are in need. Please watch for posted JPA meetings for opportunities to be heard. At these meetings we make decisions regarding the dissemination of your JPA dues. If you have any ideas, please feel free to either email me or talk to me at any time. E-mails sent to info@journeymanbasketball.com will be forwarded to my attention right away.

Sincerely,
Ryan O’Donnell
JPA President

Paying your dues is very important! Your parents paid your JPA dues as part of the registration process for the ease of collection. This does not however mean you are off the hook! Please remember to show good character by paying your parents back either with $5 or earn it back with additional chores.
