Maccabi GB have started preparations for this summer’s JCC Maccabi Games.

They are looking for athletes aged 13-16 to join the squad that will
compete in San Francisco from July 30 to August 9.

MGB plans to take a 30-strong delegation of players and managers to compete in boys Under 14 seven-a-side football, track and field, tennis, table tennis, golf and swimming.

The group will be headed by Valerie Herman and her partner Nicky Parnes. Herman said: “The Games are such a great experience to be involved in and we are really looking forward to going again this year.

The Games create memories of a lifetime for the athletes and the organisation of the competition is brilliant.”

MGB brought home 26 medals from the 2008 Games in Detroit. For more details email
