Research proves the lifelong importance of exercising body and mind. The JCC offers sports and wellness programs that help you achieve just that. We offer sports leagues throughout the year, including basketball and flag football, as well as other fun and challenging games. Questions? Contact Neal Alsop (Uptown) or PJ Jones (Metairie).
Improvements are coming! The Pasternack Family Gymnasium (Uptown) will be closed from October 2 - December 15 while the gym floor is replaced.
Due to the replacement of the Uptown gym floor, Fall leagues will be held in Metairie. Contact Neal for details.
Each league runs three seasons (spring, summer, and fall) and consist of a regular season followed by a single elimination playoff.
*Before the start of the spring league, members can purchase a “League Pass” which is a discounted registration price to participate in the league for the year.
Play a game or shoot some hoops during pick-up basketball - no registration is required. Free for members. Regular guest fees apply for non-member.
*To accommodate weekend pickup basketball, JCC adult members are invited to play in De La Salle's gymnasium on Sundays from 8:00 - 11:00 AM. Use of De La Salle's gym is a members only privilege.
|Flag Football Uptown Only|
Flag football is a variation of tackle football, except there is no physical contact between players. Each player wears a set of flags and are pulled by the opposing team to signal a “tackle.” The league is offered twice a year (fall and spring).
Tuesdays, 6:30 - 9:30 PM
Due to the replacement of the Uptown gym floor, Pickleball will not be offered until the renovations are complete. Contact Neal for details.
One of the fastest growing sports in the country, Pickleball combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Played as singles or doubles, two or four players use solid paddles to hit a Wiffle ball over a low net. All ages and skill levels are encouraged to join us in the gym for Pickleball! Free for members. Regular guest fees apply for non-member.
