Youth SportsJoin us for exciting youth sports programming at the JCC. We offer everything from Martial Arts, Fencing, Flag Football, Junior Soccer and Basketball to Jr. Suns & Jr. Mercury Basketball Leagues. Plus a whole lot more.
Our greatest endeavor with our youth programs at the Valley of the Sun JCC is to offer a fun environment where participants can learn the basics of their chosen sport and enjoy the company of their friends and family. While friendly competition is always present and encouraged with athletic programs, we want to maintain a fun learning environment for our youth while focusing on implementing a healthy lifestyle.
We also take great pride in adhering to the Jewish tradition of the Rachmanus Rule. Rachmanus means “compassion” and sets the tone for competition here at the JCC. Running up the score against a weaker team just because it can be done, trash talk, making fun of opposing players are all in violation of the Rachmanus Rule and contrary to the spirit of our programs.
In joining our leagues, you are welcome to register as an individual or we are happy to take a full team with your choice of volunteer coach. We encourage all participants to include their friends to build their teams.
For those interested in a focused learning environment with professional coaches, we also offer skill building clinics and training camps from grades Pre-K - High School.
Our programs succeed with excellent, dedicated volunteer coaches. We offer coaching clinics prior to the season to help those with less experience feel comfortable transitioning into their new role as coach.
We welcome members, non-members, and all religious backgrounds to get involved with all of our programs! Come learn a new sport at the J today!
