The Jacksonville Sharks and Duval County Public Schools have joined together in the efforts to save school athletics in the upcoming 2012-13 school year. Chum, the Sharks' mascot, stopped by the district office to encourage employees to purchase tickets to the upcoming Sharks game on Saturday, July 14 at 7 p.m. A portion of all ticket sales will go towards the district's efforts to save school athletics and physical education programs.
To purchase tickets and give back to the school athletics, visit
www.jaxsharks.com. From the homepage, click Team Shop followed by Group Tickets. Enter the username,
DCPS Athletics, and password, KeepKidsFit. Once logged in, choose the seats you wish to purchase. Tickets will be available for pickup at the Will Call window of the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena box office, which opens at noon on Saturday. A Sharks' win over the Orlando Predators on Saturday will allow them to advance to the playoffs.
Thanks to the Department of Community & Family Engagement for organizing this partnership with the Jacksonville Sharks. To view all the pictures from Chum's visit, check out the Duval County Public Schools'
