JGS Athletics Program
The goal of our growing athletics program is simple: to provide a safe environment in which students of varying athletic ability enjoy participating on sports teams during the academic year.
I teach students to focus on effort and positive communication, guiding them in building strong character through good sportsmanship and support of one another. As a coach it’s important to cultivate each student-athlete’s passion for learning and developing character through sport and competition. My goal is for all of my students to learn and understand the importance of dedication, teamwork, and positive communication.
My son Ben has been with JGS since 7th grade. He is now in 9th. Last year was the best year ever. Coach J.J. joined JGS! Since day one of meeting Coach J.J., Ben came home excited about what he was doing in PE. and then started talking about playing sports for his school! He became a student athlete! Something that he thought would never happen since he moved schools. And he had the best Coach in town. Coach J.J. believes in each child, and they know it. My son ran in the running club, played flag football and played softball. My son and his teammates grew so much with the encouragement they received on a daily basis. They truly were a team and cared for each other because they knew their coach cared for them. Ben is in High School now and to have the opportunity to participate in sports has given him such confidence. We are so blessed to have a Coach like J.J.!
