Team Maccabi GB will take a 73-athlete squad to this summer’s JCC Maccabi Games in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.

The Games – which run from August 7-18 - 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.

Among the squad, led by Heads of Delegation, Brian and Helena Green, and a 12-person management team, 54 athletes will take to the stage of international competition for the first time and announce themselves to the Jewish sporting world as potential future European Maccabi Games and Maccabiah stars.

Maccabi GB will be looking to improve upon the record medal haul of 108 at last summer’s games, with this the Cherry Hill event featuring more than 1,300 youngsters from 40 delegations.

Brian Green said: “Helena and Iare we delighted with the strength in depth and quality of the squad. 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.”
