The Jewish Community Center is always striving to enhance members’ experiences and looks for opportunities to partner with other organizations in the community. For this summer, the JCC is able to do both.
Working closely with the leadership of the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence (JHFE) and the Standard Club, the JCC has developed two add-on packages for its members – one for tennis and one for swimming – to run from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
The JCC currently does not offer tennis on its Dutchmans Lane campus, and there are five clay courts available at Standard Club. This summer, for a $150 add-on fee, JCC members will be able to use the Standard Club courts. Participants in this program will also be able to participate in tennis clinics and other organized activities at reduced rates.
For those JCC members who would like an additional option for summer swimming, the JCC is offering an add-on pool package for $300, providing the option of swimming at either location.
“We are proud of the breadth of quality experiences our JCC provides and would like to expand our reach into the community by offering additional programs at Standard Club throughout the year,” said Sara Wagner, senior vice president and chief operating officer. “The JCC program cabinet has discussed a variety of opportunities, and details will be available soon. Taking JCC programs to new locations introduces our programs to a new market.
“Following this summer’s add-on opportunities,” she continued, “we look forward to learning from the experience about the best ways to serve the needs of our members and the community.”
The opportunity for the JCC to offer programming at the Standard Club site arose when the Standard Country Club ceased its clubhouse operations and Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence purchased the property. Standard Club still operates the golf course, pool and tennis courts. The JCC is partnering with both agencies for this summer’s programs.
