TEAM MACCABI GB SQUAD HOPING JCC MACCABI GAMES IN CHERRY HILL WILL BE FRUITFUL

 

Maccabi GB, in partnership with UJIA, is proud to officially announce the athletes who will be competing on behalf of Team Maccabi GB at this summer’s JCC Maccabi Games in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The JCC Games, from 7th-18th August 2014, are a chance for young athletes under the age of 16 to represent their country in America in a sporting environment, whilst experiencing social and cultural programmes with other young Jewish people from around the world.

Heads of Delegation, Brian and Helena Green, along with their 12-person Management Team, have chosen 73 athletes to compete on behalf of British Jewry. For many of the representatives it will be their first taste of international competition, plus a chance to announce themselves to the Jewish sporting world as potential future European Maccabi Games and Maccabiah stars. 54 of the athletes will be competing in their first ever JCC Maccabi Games.

This summer’s JCC Maccabi Games will see over 1300 young, Jewish athletes from around 40 different delegations descend on New Jersey. Maccabi GB will be looking to improve upon the record medal haul of 108 at last summer’s games in Orange County, California.

The announcement comes just a few months after the Management Team was confirmed.

Speaking about the selection, Brian Green said, “Helena (Green) and I are honoured to be heading the Maccabi GB delegation to the JCC Maccabi Games for the fifth consecutive year. Not only are we delighted with the strength in depth and quality of the squad, we are equally pleased with the quality of the Management Team that we are taking to Cherry Hill. It is particularly pleasing to have over 50 young people who will get their first experience of the JCC Maccabi Games. There are some talented athletes in this squad and we are aiming to give all these kids a trip of a lifetime on and off the field of play, especially giving the participants a chance to mix with other young Jewish athletes from around the world.”
