The 2013 JCC Youth Soccer and Baseball program schedules have been designed so that children can participate in both programs without a conflict in scheduling.  Soccer ends before baseball begins for preschool age children.  Although soccer and baseball seasons do overlap for Kindergarten through 4th graders, two practices are offered each week for each age group in each program.  These practice days do not overlap.  Children may come to as many practices as they would like but are not required to come to both practices for a sport each week.  This affords families the flexibility to pick practice days that work best for their schedule and more easily participate in soccer and baseball.
