Sports is an integral part of so many children's lives. At the JCC we believe that developing and nurturing a child's lifelong love of sports starts them on the path of fitness, health and wellness which they will carry throughout their lives. All classes focus on footwork, skill development, concepts of each sport and an appreciation of healthy competition. Classes with multiple sport curriculae will include baseball, basketball, hockey, team handball and more. Specific sport classes such as slam dunk basketball, pee wee and advanced tennis and outdoor lacrosse will focus on the skills and strategies of those sports.  Your child's JCC sports experience will always include fitness, fair play and fun!
