There are many sports leagues, introductory programs, tournaments, etc., available to children and adults in the GTA. Many of these clubs and leagues offer quality programming, and are viable sporting options for participants in most age groups. Some programs focus on recreational sports, some on elite, some on adapted sports, and some are gender based. Most of these programs focus on one specific sport, and one catchment area. This may be the right fit for some, but that is also where we believe JCC Chai Sports has a distinct competitive advantage.
When you join us, you join our family. You join our community initiative, you join the JCC’s of Greater Toronto, and you join a very unique perspective on sports leagues/programs. As you look for the right fit for your child or for yourself, please consider these points below:
We are a multi-sport organization, offering year-round quality programming in numerous sports such as hockey, soccer, basketball, baseball, flag football and more.
Unlike other recreational leagues, we use experienced and trained instructors to organize and run practices for your child. Development and fundamentals are the keys to our programs.
We offer once a week programming for all recreational leagues, so no more fighting rush hour traffic to get to practice and spending the entire weekend running around. We combine a practice and game in the same setting, with a longer and more enhanced weekly session.
We have a strong “feeder system” for most of our sports including, introductory programs starting as early as 4, house league programs, Select or Rep leagues, and tournament teams such as the JCC Maccabi Games.
Unlike many organizations that are solely volunteer based, we have a full time staff, and that you can communicate with during business hours.
Our Management team is second to none, with over two decades of experience in the professional and amateur sports business. We are connected throughout the sporting world including the NHL, NBA, Maccabi Games, Israel Ice Hockey Federation, CMHL and more. We regularly bring professional athletes out to our events, and are regularly spotlighted in the media.
We are the “Sole” provider of Toronto’s JCC Maccabi Games Delegation, which is an Olympic style event for ages 13-16.
We are open to everyone, regardless of race, religion or gender.
As a part of the JCC’s of Greater Toronto, we do not play any recreational games on Shabbat or on Jewish Holidays.
We offer discounts and connection to other JCC programs such as camp, daycare, fitness, aquatics and much more
There is simply nothing like our model at any other JCC, or anywhere else in the GTA.
Our goal is provide our players the best experience possible, and we will do everything in our power to make that happen. We currently over 1500 yearly participants and we are growing each year.
