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 - 12 can choose from a range of recreational and instructional dance programs, swimming, leagues and classes, including basketball, gymnastics, soccer, flag football and more.  

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

Weinstein JCC Youth Leagues

By joining a youth league, children can build the foundation for a lifetime of healthy activity. The Carole and Marcus Weinstein Jewish Community Center is the ideal place to join. Our Center has a long history of league sports in Greater Richmond, and we’re proud of the memories we’ve created for all who have participated. 

The youth leagues at the Weinstein JCC include:

Our Jr. NFL Flag Football League is for ages five to 11. This league focuses on safety, skill development, and fun. And each participant gets an NFL jersey and flag belt. 
 

Our Jr. NBA Basketball League is for ages four to 11. Players practice before they play a game each week at the Weinstein JCC. (Parents—volunteers for coaching are always welcome!)
