WAVES Swim Team

WAVES swimming uses a progressive age group program in which the swimmer is instructed and developed in physical, mental and emotional levels in a systematic fashion. An emphasis on fun and family for the younger swimmers develops into a gradual increase in commitment over a period of years. WAVES offers competitive and non-competitive tracks for swimmers to follow once they finish with swim lessons.

The JCC Recreational Futsal program is a unique opportunity for younger players to begin to develop their soccer skills in a fun, game-oriented, environment. This program will help children improve motor and ball skills and boost their self-confidence using fun-packed, small-sided games. Futsal is one of the best options for player development and for improving speed of play, technical skills, decision-making and fitness. Each session consists of a practice followed by a game.
