Sports & Recreation

The JCC Sports & Recreation Department is proud to offer a wide range of sports leagues, tournaments, classes, clinics and outings to sporting events for members of all ages!  Additionally, use of the gymnasium is free to members to “shoot hoops” or play other sports.


The JCC has two racquetball/handball courts available for use.  Use of the courts is free to members, and you do not need to schedule time. You must bring your own racquet,but racquetballs may be purchased at the front desk.

Scranton Sports & Social Club at the JCC

The JCC and the Scranton Sports and Social Club have teamed up to offer a variety of co-ed sports leagues throughout the course of the year.  We offer volleyball, dodgeball, basketball, kickball and more.  The leagues are eight weeks in duration, relaxed, yet competitive and include socialization as the teams meet at a local restaurant upon the conclusion of play weekly.  League information can be found in our News & Program Guide
