JUGHEADS School Year Clubs

Tuesday Rec. Club

Grades 2*-12
Tuesdays, 3:00–6:30 pm

 Tuesday Rec. is designed for jugglers in elementary and middle school. This has been our main entry-level club since 2018, with many eager to learn and assimilate in the company.

*Rising 2nd graders may join Thurs. w/ special permission. Those with camp experience/older Jughead siblings acclimate the best.

Thursday Rec. Club

Grades 2*–12
Thursdays, 3:00–6:30 pm

 Thursday Rec. is a hybrid between Rec. Club and Advanced with eclectic friendships, many multi-year members, and the widest age range of any in our line-up of weekly juggling clubs.

*Rising 2nd graders may join Thurs. w/ special permission. Those with camp experience/older Jughead siblings acclimate the best.

Advanced Club

Grades 6*–12
Mondays, 3:00–6:30 pm

 Advanced is a favorite club in our company’s history, and many Rec. Jugheads work hard to achieve the standards. Along with high expectations for continued progress, Advanced comes with the promise of creativity, new and deeper friendships, and a challenging JJ25 routine.

*Rising 5th graders may join Adv. with special permission plus extensive experience and/or higher standards.

Advanced Standards must be achieved before joining.

Monday Night Club

Grades 5–12
Mondays, 6:15–9:30 pm

Monday Night Club (MNC) revives Saturday Club from the ‘90’s and High School Club from the 2000’s. Focused exclusively on standards (technical work) and specialty acts (solos & ensembles), this summer camp-like club is for members of another club but will accept punchcard Jugheads in increments of 5, 10 or 20 punches. 

No Juggle Jam routine, so maximum time to juggle & create!

*All the Rec. Standards  are prerequisites for MNC.

Elite Club

Grades 8–12
Tuesdays, 6:15–9:30 pm

This club represents a significant milestone achievement for many Jugheads with higher goals. Snack-time chats, warm-ups, structure, workshops, years-long friendships and rousing contests & games define this weekly haven for teens. Once standards are met, admittance is contingent on space and Director & Head Coach permission. Our traditional club focus: 1st Sem.—skills; 2nd Sem.—Juggle Jam routine (and elective specialty acts for the Showcase).

*Rising 7th graders may join Elite with special permision and one year of Advanced Club experience.

Once Elite Standards are met, admittance is contingent on space and director permission. The 1st Semester focus is on skills and the 2nd Semester focus is on developing the Juggle Jam routine*

Ultimate Club

Grades 9–12
Thursdays, 6:00-9:30 pm

Ultimate Club offers a varsity-level experience with the opportunity to earn letters in juggling! Each week features intense warm-ups, passing patterns, and creative choreography toward the year-long goal of a complex and rewarding Juggle Jam routine. Admittance is contingent on consultation with (and invitation from) both Head Coach Erica Liddle and Director Paul Arneberg. Ultimates are required to join Elite Club for a 2nd day (Adv. is the back-up; MNC is elective). 

Admittance is contingent on an invitation from the Director and Ultimate Club Standards met. Ultimates are required to join a 2nd club (almost always Elite; back-up: Advanced) and make up absences. Current members with the UC Standards should push for the SUPER Ultimate Standards  (at least 11 of them by the end of two U.C. years).15
