The Just People sports program was started to meet the demand of our consumers wanting to participate in recreational sports activities. We started in 2000 with one softball team but have grown to over 100 clients participating in events and leagues throughout the year. “Just” People Sports and Nutrition program is only possible because of donations and volunteer work from our staff and family members.
Just People, Inc. offers a variety of team and individual sports throughout the year including; Basketball, Softball, Table Tennis, Swimming, Track and Field, Bocce, Roller Skating, Golf, Tennis, Alpine Skiing, Soccer, Cycling, Power Lifting, Gymnastics, Volleyball and Bowling.
