Join Us and Make EMYG24 Shine: Volunteer Today!

Updated: Mar 28

Maccabi GB is gearing up for an unforgettable event this July as we proudly host the inaugural European Maccabi Youth Games (EMYG24) from July 30 to August 6. Behind the scenes, the Maccabi GB team are working tirelessly to ensure a remarkable experience for everyone involved, but we need your help to make it truly spectacular! Join us as a volunteer and become an integral part of EMYG24.

 

Volunteering for EMYG24 is not just about lending a helping hand; it's about being part of something bigger than yourself. It's an opportunity to connect with your community, celebrate our shared heritage, and create lasting memories. Whether you're passionate about sports, logistics, or simply want to give back, there's a role for you.

 

As a volunteer, you'll play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth operation of the Games. From assisting with event logistics and operations to providing support to athletes and spectators, your time and dedication will be invaluable in making EMYG24 a success. Plus, volunteering is a fantastic way to learn new skills, meet new people, make a positive impact on those around you and really feel part of the EMYG community.

 

But the excitement doesn't stop there! In addition to volunteering opportunities, our teams are hard at work preparing for the Games. Recent fundraising events, like the successful Supper Quiz (photos below) hosted by the U18 Girls Football Squad, have raised essential funds to support our athletes' training endeavours. We also held another important Management training session at our Kenton offices, featuring an informative presentation on nutrition and hydration from our Swimming manager Tamir Grant. Additionally, veteran manager Frank Steinberg gave a presentation about his previous experiences managing squads in previous Games.


 

So, whether you're eager to volunteer your time or simply want to stay updated on our teams' progress, there's something for everyone to get involved in. Together, we'll make EMYG24 a celebration to remember!

The next week was the largest Girls Football tournament that Maccabi GB have ever hosted. It was incredible to see 350 players from 38 teams take part, representing 18 schools. Wolfson Hillel Red beat Menorah Foundation Red in the final 4-0. This was alongside Hertsmere Jewish Primary School winning the Green tournament. This tournament is one that keeps growing and we’re excited to see just how much it will grow in the future.
