JCC Maccabi Games 2018


Team Dallas is excited to announce we are going back to the beach!
2018 JCC Maccabi Games® & ArtsFest
Orange County, CA | August 5 - 10

The JCC Maccabi Games® are an Olympic-style sporting competition held each summer in North America and is the second largest organized sports program for Jewish teenagers in the world.

The first North American JCC Maccabi Games® were held in 1982 with 300 athletes. Today, over 6,000 teens, ranging from 13 to 16 years of age, participate in the JCC Maccabi Games® each summer. Beyond the athletic competition, The Games promote community involvement, teamwork, and pride in being Jewish. From the connections made via home hospitality to the energy and excitement that comes from competing to the socializing at evening events, the JCC Maccabi Games® offer a unique and unforgettable experience for every participant, from athletes to volunteers, to coaches and host families.

Team Dallas regularly sends one of the largest delegations to the JCC Maccabi Games® and will do so again for the 2018 Games.

Follow our Facebook page and Instagram for updates and highlights throughout the year.

Thank you for your interested in Team Dallas. The tryout process is completed for Summer 2018.
