Thank You Ozark Sponsors

Ozark Juniors would like to highlight our sponsors!  As a 501(c)3 non profit organization, we rely on the generosity of sponsors to provide assistance to athletes and families in our program, as well as to purchase equipment and other necessities.  Without the generous support of these sponsors, Ozark Juniors would not be able to meet our goals of reaching as many kids as possible in the Northwest Arkansas area through the sport of volleyball.
Thank you to all Ozark Juniors Volleyball Club Sponsors for your dedication to our program!  We appreciate your generosity and we are very excited to have you as a part of our club.
