Philosophy
Our belief is that individuals improve by being taught fundamental skills and concepts that will make them better players. We stress team play and learning the proper offensive and defensive fundamentals in a positive environment. Teams will play tournament games that will challenge them and help them gain experience. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere where kids can learn basketball; compete and develop a passion and excitement to play the game the right way.
Leadership/Coaching
The JCC Lions coaching staff includes many years of both coaching and playing experience. Leadership and coaching of the program is coordinated by Jonathan Crossley who has over 15 years of coaching experience. The JCC coaching staff is highly qualified and committed to providing the tools for your child to be the best that they can be!
