What is the Robert Jacobson Sports philosophy?
Robert Jacobson Sports (RJS) gets your child and your family connected to our sports and education programs. We want you and your children to meet and play with other families and friends in our community and surrounding areas. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to experience and get connected to sports in a safe and fun manner. Robert Jacobson Sports believes that playing to win is fine but all players must have the opportunity to participate in practice and games. We teach every child how to improve their game regardless of their playing level. We teach our players and coaches the values of community, tolerance, sportsmanship and teamwork while competing on the court and on the field. All children, from all communities are welcome to play in our sports programs. We get your child and your family connected!
Who Was Robert Jacobson?
Robert Jacobson was a young man who loved life, loved his family, loved his friends, loved his community and loved playing sports. Robert was a graduate of Ardsley High School. He was a community member who had many friends and was eager to meet new people and had a knack for developing long lasting relationships. In his second year of college, on his way home for Spring Break, Robert tragically lost his life in a fatal car accident.
It is with his spirit of involvement, his spirit of community and his ability to foster new friendships that we created and developed our sports and education programs.
