Welcome to JCC Sports


The New Orleans JCC is home to two recently renovated full court gymnasiums, two natural grass athletic fields, batting cage, racquetball/squash court, and a variety of sports equipment available for membership usage. With year round programming, the NOJCC offers a wide range of sport options for males and females of all ages.

 Organized leagues, sports mini camps, pick-up games and free play are just a part of the NOJCC Sports scene. We also have special events throughout the year, such as the annual Kicking for Kids kickball tournament, Uptown Classic 5K & Family Fun Run, and 3-on-3 basketball tournaments that allow for single day participation in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

National Coloring Book Day

We love to celebrate here at the JCC, and we also look for any opportunity to be creative. Join us for a coloring break in The Nosh of the Uptown JCC for National Coloring Book Day on August 2.

We’d love to see your artwork, so be sure to tag us and use hashtag #nojcc on social media!


Finding Your Fit Foods

Creating a lifestyle, rather than a diet, will give you the flexibility to make healthy choices while still enjoying what you eat. Sometimes the hardest part about eating healthfully is simply knowing what will taste good without packing on the pounds. Check out some of the healthy recipes recommended by Metairie Wellness Director Alexis Boudreau to get started and get cooking!
