All practices will be led by the team's Head Coach in a fun and structured environment. Coaches will instruct on the fundamentals of the game and skill development. As the season progresses, Coaches will evaluate and provide feedback to the players. Practices are mandatory and players are strongly encouraged to attend skill clinics. Parent meeting will be held 30 minutes before practice starts on beginning practice date.


Our belief is that individuals improve by being taught fundamental skills and concepts that will make them better players. We stress team play and learning the proper offensive and defensive fundamentals in a positive environment. Teams will play in leagues 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.
The JCC basketball programs mission is to teach the fundamentals of basketball in a manner that promotes sportsmanship, fair play, and teamwork. Coaches will maintain a safe and positive environment so each player can reach their potential while having fun.  Players will be set up for success to improve and polish their skills with proper offense and defense fundamentals.


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.
