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.
Drop off classes include:
- Sports (2.5–10 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 (3–10 Years): Children practice groundstrokes, 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.
- Dynamo Girl at the JCC (5–10 Years): Dynamo Girl teaches girls fundamental sports skills in a fun and joyful environment. Girls are introduced to sports like flag football, basketball, and soccer while developing their speed, strength, and agility through obstacle courses and running games. We incorporate a love of creative expression and collaboration into our classes and weave in a social/emotional curriculum that addresses the challenges girls face in their social dynamics. Dynamo Girl makes your daughter stronger inside and out!
