Recreation: Building Skills, Values & Community

Participating in sports is great for your health. But at the Weinstein JCC, sports go beyond the physical to give participants opportunities to grow as a person. In our youth leagues and rec programs, children, their parents and adult team members all build lasting friendships in a friendly environment. Good sportsmanship is always emphasized!

Recreation Programs

Sports can be a lot more fun when you’re participating as a group. At the Weinstein JCC, we bring children and adults opportunities for healthy fun, with classes and rec teams covering a huge range of sports activities.

For preschoolers, the Weinstein JCC is a great place to get moving! Our Lunch and Fun programs include classes in aquatics, fitness, recreation and dance for children ages three and up.

Children ages 6 - 17 can choose from a range of recreational and instructional dance programs, swimming, leagues and classes, including basketball, gymnastics, soccer, flag football, martial arts and more.  

Adults can meet friends and enjoy pick-up basketball, pickleball, running clubs and many other gym and fitness activities.

Jr. NFL Youth Flag Football League

Our season starts with a skills evaluation (Sunday, September 9) followed by a selection process to determine teams. The only requests taken for team placement are sibling requests.

All practices and games are held on Sundays at Quioccasin Middle School. Volunteer coaches facilitate practices prior to each game. Sign up early, because limited space is available in each division!
