Jr. Maccabi Basketball League

 Katz JCC Junior Maccabi Basketball

Katz JCC Sun National Bank Jr. Maccabi Basketball LeagueThe Junior Maccabi Basketball League at the Katz JCC is an instructional and recreational basketball league for boys (Pre-K – 9th grade) and girls (Pre-K – 7th grade) that takes place annually December through March.

NEW THIS YEAR:
This program is now open to the community! This is a great way for kids to make new friends and be introduced to the fun sport of basketball!

The league includes: quality instruction and games, age appropriate sized courts & basket height, age appropriate rules and referees, skill development, team uniforms, awards and referees, photos, newsletters, and most importantly fun and friendship! All participants will play on Sundays, with the exception of 5th and 6th grade boys, who play on Monday evenings. Specific program times vary by age and annual league enrollment.

Please note:  Requests will not be taken this year for 3rd Grade and up. It is our intention to balance the teams through evaluation days and drafts, which we feel will be most effective.

Registration opens for JCC Full Facility Members on September 4th and for JCC Basic Members & Guests on October 2nd.
