Sports Skills

In the JCCSF Youths Sports Program, all players learn sports-specific skills and engage in activities for overall fitness and athleticism. Coaches provide constructive feedback, focusing on mastery of skill over scoreboard results, decreasing players' anxieties and providing them with a sense of control over the outcome. The result is players who are comfortable in their sport and confident in their abilities.
