Imagine The J KC



Building Community

In total, this expansion will be an approximately 32,000-square-foot addition. This campaign comes from a need to expand the center’s space for programming and continue to build on The J’s commitment to community. During the past eight years, the center has had a 50% growth in its programming, meaning all youth leagues, the center’s preschool, dance classes and more were completely maxed out.


Sports + Recreation Expansion

Sports & Recreation programs have had explosive growth over the last 5 years. In addition to the new turf fields we installed this year, we are adding a new basketball court and indoor turf field. This will allow programming to continue without being affected by the weather and give us added space to continue working with community organizations who also need these types of facilities.


Family Areas Expansion

Our family areas expansion will bring a new outdoor pool feature with more fun for the entire family. In addition, the “Youth Fitness Zone” will be relocated to be adjacent to “The Park” - making drop-offs convenient for families with multiple children.


Yoga, Dance, + Art Studio Expansions

This piece of the expansion will bring the addition of several yoga/dance studio spaces as well as an art studio space. The new yoga studios will have the ability to offer hot yoga. The new dance studios will allow growth for the full dance classes. And the art studio will allow The J to offer art classes to children and adults outside of the Heritage Center for the first time.
