Jay Talk – 3/14/24

March 14, 2024

Wow, mid-March which means great weather, Opening Day right around the corner, and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament which is being held here in town. Let’s have some fun with that! Email me at jayj@vosjcc.org by next Wednesday (March 20) your prediction on who the Final Four will be. For each team that you select correctly we’ll enter one ticket into a raffle for a free month of membership. Also include who you predict will win the tournament and we’ll enter each winning pick into a second raffle for a free month.

And to some thoughts and happenings:


Please remember to bring your membership card when coming to The J. If you happen to forget it, we’ll ask for a Photo ID. Please remember our security team is only “doing their job” when asking.

Remember when signing-up for a group fitness class, swim lane, and/or pickleball court that there is most likely someone on a wait list. If you find you’re unable to attend, please show consideration to others by canceling your reservation.

Please shower before entering the pool. When using the fitness center, appropriate closed-toe shoes and clothing are required.

Thank You

To those who participated in our SWOT analysis, a big time thank you. It was extremely helpful, and we’ll be posting key results in a future “Pulse of The J.”

Great To See

The terrific usage of our new outdoor pickleball courts. It’s very cool to see adult matches, parents and kids playing and learning, and just members of all-ages taking advantage.

Shemesh + Kochavim Day Camps

Certain camp weeks are already closed, and the others are filling fast! It’s going to be an amazing summer and we want your child to be a part of it, so don’t delay, sign-up today! Contact Erin at erinw@vosjcc.org with any questions.

Swim Lessons

This is a great time to be thinking about summer fun and water safety. Whether your child needs to learn to swim or improve their skills, our aquatics team can meet your needs. Contact Cleo at cleopatricg@vosjcc.org to get started. We also offer swim team, masters, and adult lessons.


We know there’s nothing better than word of mouth marketing. To help you help us, for every member you refer (they must sign up for a 12-month membership) you’ll receive one month of membership at no cost. It’s that simple. Please make sure they provide your name as when joining.

Flash Sale

Our highly anticipated Personal Training and Pilates Flash Sale begins next week! Enjoy a fantastic 10% discount on your first package and 15% off your second. Visit the membership desk for additional information.

Parkinson’s Wellness Day at The J

Next Thursday, March 21, from 10am-12pm, our featured keynote speaker Becky G. Farley, PhD, MSPT, PT will be joining us to discuss exercise for Brain Change Essentials and developing your own personalized “Hopamine” Prescription. Community partners will be available to talk with you before the presentation, beginning at 9:15am. PD Exercise segments will be presented by Dr. Farley and the Parkinson’s Fitness Program Instructors at The J! Register here.

There’s a lot happening, and we look forward to seeing you here at The J. As always, we can’t thank you enough for being a member of our J Family. Please know it’s appreciated and never taken for granted.

Have a great day,
