Youth Sports

Our community celebrates the joys of childhood and encourages the independence of youth. For decades, New Orleans families have trusted the JCC with their children, and we have responded with a year-round mix of programming, classes and competitions. We offer sports programs at both of our locations.  Contact Neal Alsop (Uptown) or PJ Jones (Metairie) with questions. 

All contact sports are temporarily on-hold in accordance with government guidelines.
