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).
Individual basketball play is available by reservation. All contact sports are prohibited by government guidelines, therefore leagues, pickup basketball, and Pickleball are on-hold.

Friday, 5:30 AM - 8:30 AM
Saturday-Sunday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
