The JCC offers opportunities for fun, fitness, and relaxation. Join our age-appropriate basketball leagues for children through adult players, or drop-in for an informal pickup game, indoors and outdoors. If you enjoy racquet sports, play to your heart’s content on our racquetball, international squash court, or outdoor tennis court.

Below are few of the great programs we will be running again as soon as the J reopens! 

Pickleball 

An easy game for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. A fun sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. 

Floorball 

A fast and exciting game that promotes end-to-end plays with quick transitions and fluid game play. The rules stress the importance of safety and sportsmanship and are designed to limit the chance of injury without decreasing the speed or skill of the game. Floorball is great training for hockey players as it improves your stick handling, shooting and passing skills.
