NEW! Junior Boxing Club
Ages 14 & up

Evander Holyfield began his boxing training when he was 8 years old and weighed 65 pounds. He went on to become an Olympic medalist and four-time world heavyweight champion. Your child may not become a heavyweight champion, but he or she can reap several benefits from the sport of boxing. Boxing will teach your child how to throw punches, including the jab, cross, hook and uppercut. Correct body mechanics needed to throw these techniques with the most speed and power will also be taught. Boxing offers children several psychological benefits, including improved confidence, self-discipline and determination.

NEW! Teen Fit
Ages 13 & up
You keep your skin clean. You condition your hair. You’re eating right. You’re doing all you can to look and feel great. But are you missing out on an important part of a healthier lifestyle? No matter what your age or shape, you should exercise daily. Not only does exercise tone your body so you can wear your favorite jeans, it strengthens your muscles, keeps your bones strong, and improves your skin. And there are more benefits of exercise – increased relaxation, better sleep and mood, strong immune function, and more. This class will make you stronger, faster, more powerful and make you feel better by performing high energy functional movements that are natural and safe.

NEW! Stamford Stingrays Swim Team at the J!
The JCC of Stamford is excited to announce the launch of our first competitive swim team. Winter season runs from mid-September through mid-March. The JCC will compete in two leagues: Central Connecticut Winter Swim League and The New England JCC League. Swim meets are held on Sunday afternoons. Practices will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. Children must try out for the team, and must have the following prerequisites:

•  Level 4 – Barracuda (stroke development)
•  Pre Swim Team*

* The JCC’S Pre Swim Team is a wonderful way to develop good swimmers into great swimmers before they join our competitive team. For more information please contact Daniel Servelli at dservelli@stamfordjcc.org or 203.487.0990. Click here to register online.
