JCA Sports and Recreation provides quality athletic programs and services for the Jacksonville community.

Our mission is to create safe, convenient athletic programs while reinforcing a healthy lifestyle through year-round clinics and leagues for adults and children of all ages and abilities. For more information about any of our youth or adult sports programs, contact Sports and Recreation Director Rio Robinson at (904) 730-2100 ext. 250 or rio.robinson@jcajax.org.

JCA Youth Sports offers athletes as young as three-years-old the opportunity to learn foundational skills in sports such as basketball, soccer, golf, gymnastics, baseball and flag football. For older youth athletes, the variety of options range from basketball to Taekwondo and fencing.

Teens from the community can participate in year-round clinics and leagues and gain skills in martial arts (Israeli Mixed Martial Arts), Varsity Basketball, fencing, flag football, volleyball and more. These programs allow older athletes to interact with their peers and elevate their skills in professional-led programs.

Our Sports Clinics provide training and guidance to help your child learn the fundamentals of a sport as well as principles of good sportsmanship that they can practice throughout their lives.

In JCA Sports Leagues, young athletes apply their abilities in a safe, competitive environment while continuing the development of sportsmanship skills. Teams participate in local leagues under the guidance of skilled JCA coaches. We are always adding new programs and clinics for young athletes to explore.

Adults in Jacksonville can also participate in sports clinics and leagues at the JCA. We offer tennis, volleyball, swimming, fencing, soccer, basketball and other seasonal offerings. Our leagues are held throughout the year, so there are many options to fit participation at the JCA into your calendar.

Our adult clinics teach the fundamentals or help you perfect your skills in a welcoming space of good sportsmanship and an inclusive, competitive environment. We hope to see your name on one of our rosters soon!
