JCC Little Rookies Basketball

JCC Little Rookies is a youth basketball league for all skill levels. Our aim is to teach the foundational skills of basketball with a focus on fundamentals and teamwork in a fun and energetic setting.  The first 6-weeks consist of drills in stations, with a keen focus on ball-handling, shooting, defense, and spacing. The remaining 7-weeks will consist of game play. Each child will be put on a team and games will played 4 on 4, full court. Our trained high school and college age student/coaches will teach the rules of the game, how to be a teammate, and ultimately create an environment that has the little hoopers eager to continue to play the game of basketball for years to come!

Krav Maga Kids


9-Week Session
$225 Member | $270 Non-Member
Ages 6 – 15
Tuesdays | 5:00 – 6:00 PM

Empower your kids by having them train in the most effective self-defense system in the world. Are you looking for a fitness activity for your child that can also help them defend themselves. The primary goal of Krav Maga is to neutralize the threat as quickly and efficiently as possible. There is very little fighting etiquette to learn and an emphasis is placed on being able to react out of instinct with proper self-defense & attack moves during any physical confrontation.
We do all this while building confidence, developing life skills, and most importantly having FUN!

No class 9/27, 10/4, 10/11, 10/18, and 11/22

For more information, please contact Master Palacios at
