The Juneau Jumpers would like to offer an enthusiastic and heartfelt thank you to the coaches, many community sponsors and parents who helped make their 28th season a great success. The Juneau Jumpers program is a supportive, safe, healthy and fun environment for youth in third grade through high school who are willing to put forth the effort and the dedication to practice, learn, teach and perfect jump rope and gymnastic skills; it promotes a healthy lifestyle and teamwork, as well as personal development.
The Juneau Jumpers finished their 28th season with a spring show for the community where jumpers displayed their awesome jumping talents, including a glow rope routine along with other exciting jump rope skills and routines. At the show there was a silent auction featuring some fantastic homemade desserts and creative baskets, designed and donated by team families. Door prize drawings were held and we would like to thank the following Juneau Businesses for generously donating door prizes: Nugget Alaskan Outfitter and the Alaskan Brewing Company. Thank you to all of the parents and volunteers who helped to put the show on and to the community for showing your appreciation for the Juneau Jumper program by attending the show.

The Juneau Jumpers team exists because of the willingness of a few dedicated persons to put in numerous hours of volunteer time; the majority of time is put in by our dedicated coaching staff. The team wishes to thank Karen Ross for donating her time and energy to make this program a success. In addition, we wish to thank Tera Ross, Jake Ross and Becca Antonoplos, the assistant coaching staff, and all the team families who donate their time and energy through the season and provide support to their talented team members. We also wish to thank Glacier Valley School for continuing to allow us to use their facilities to hold our practices, as they have for the past 28 years!
Last but not least, we wish to offer special thanks to our raffle sponsors: Alaska Airlines, NorthStar Trekking, White Pass and Yukon Route Railway, Allen Marine Tours, True North Federal Credit Union, and Rodfather’s Broiler Steak and Seafood for their prize donations. Thank you to the Hangar on the Wharf for sponsoring the printing of the raffle tickets. We would also like to thank Sealaska Corporation for their generous monetary donation to our team this season.
