Youth Sports

Our youth sports leagues provide opportunities for play and growth through sports for children of all ages. Qualified coaches will help children build skill sets, learn teamwork, and build confidence while connecting them to a new set of friends. Youth Sports follow a seasonal calendar with multiple sport options in Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. 


Get your child involved in one of the world’s fastest growing sports right here at the LJCC. During soccer class your child will learn individual skills, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Along with building quality relationships with peers and coaches, soccer will get your child into the great outdoors for lots of physical activity.

Try Sports

Our Try Sports program allows your young child the opportunity to explore four sports in one short month! Tennis, Flag Football, T-Ball, and Soccer are all taught in an encouraging and nurturing environment. This 4-week program allows children to find new interests and talents while not committing to an entire season of a new sport.


Our T-Ball developmental class focuses on throwing, catching and hitting. This course is a fun introductory class to t-ball and perfect for your beginner athlete. Have fun in the sun with our T-Ball program.
