We stress team play and learning the proper offensive and defensive fundamentals in a positive environment. Teams will play in leagues and tournaments that will challenge them. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere where kids can learn basketball; compete and develop a passion and excitement to play the game the right way.

All JCC select head coaches are highly qualified instructors whose main objective is to create a positive environment and teach the fundamentals of basketball and how to play the game. All of our coaches are professionals. The JCC is very particular about who we have representing our program and most importantly, working with your child. Coaches are directed by the Athletic Director and the Basketball Coordinator. The entire staff is dedicated to teach the young players passion for the game!
