WHY WE MATTER.
Athletic programs are considered by many a fundamental learning opportunity for children to fine tune many life-long lessons and values including commitment, perseverance, leadership, sportsmanship and teamwork. However, the accessibility of youth athletic facilities in our area did not keep pace with the expansion of youth athletics in schools.
For this reason and many others, the JAC’s survival is critical to the overall health and availability of youth athletics in Savannah. Over 500 girls and boys walk through the halls and enjoy our facilities on any given week at the Jenkins Athletic Club. From t-ball to basketball, swimming, volleyball, flag football and more, we are busting at the seams in our modest club! In addition, the JAC provides programs for pre-middle school athletes not currently available in public schools.
We are working towards a strategic five-year plan to help us expand our Club capabilities and provide additional space and opportunities for our youngsters to learn, play and grow. In the meantime, every dollar we can raise to support our mission TODAY is critical. We would be so grateful for any gift to the Jenkins Athletic Club you could provide.
