JUGHEADS School Year Clubs

Thursday Rec. Club

Grades 2*–12
Thursdays, 3:00–6:30 pm

This recreational club is intended for jugglers in elementary and middle school. Since 2013, Thurs. Rec. has been our main entry-level “Rudy Club,” with many eager to learn and invest themselves in the company.

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

Friday Rec. Club

Grades 2*-12
Fridays, 3:00–6:30 pm

Friday Rec. is a hybrid between Rec. Club and Advanced with eclectic friendships, a higher average skill level, and the widest age range of any club in our line-up.

*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 day in our company’s history, with many Rec.-level members working 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 JJ routine.

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

Advanced Standards must be achieved before joining.

Elite Club

Grades 8–12
Tuesdays, 3:00–6:30 pm

This club represents a significant milestone achievement for many advanced-expert Jugheads. Snack 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 permission. We’re glad to welcome Coach Erica in her expanded role with our traditional club focus: 1st Sem.—skills; 2nd Sem.—JJ routine.

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

This 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 all toward the goals of a routine for JJ. 

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).
