School-Age Sports

Confidence. Exercise. Social skills. Children get each of these benefits and more when they step onto the JCC gymnasium floor. Our athletics classes provide the foundation for a healthy lifestyle while teaching your child determination, resilience, and teamwork.

Classes include:

  • Sports: (3-11 Years): Soccer, football, hockey, tennis, basketball, team handball, and more! Children focus on teamwork, skill-building, and sportsmanship with the JCC’s renowned energetic coaching staff. Our athletes will develop athleticism and sportsmanship through creative warm-ups, fun drills, and class games as they practice a wide range of sports throughout the semester. As our kids grow, game strategy becomes a major objective as we introduce friendly competition.

  • Tennis: (3-9 Years): Children practice ground strokes, volleys, ball-tracking, and overhead strokes while developing hand-eye coordination and learning sportsmanship. Classes for older students teach proper serves, game strategies, and sportsmanship as we introduce friendly competition.

  • Basketball: (4-12 Years) : Young athletes will master offensive and defensive techniques, learn basketball drills, scrimmage, and play games. Emphasis is placed on teamwork, coordination, and skill-building. Classes are open to all skill levels. Skills and drills are adapted appropriately for each athlete.
