Tryout process: There are 2 scheduled tryouts at which everyone is to show up. There will then be a 3rd tryout (scheduled for February 23th) where only the athletes the coaches determine have a legitimate chance of making the team will be invited.

Practice and Commitment: Once the team is selected, from now through June we will practice and/or scrimmage approx. every other week for 2-3 hours; additional practices could be added. We will also practice a few times the week before we leave for the Detroit. Nine (9) players will be on the team and some alternates could be selected. (Alternates only go to the Games if someone on the team pulls out.)

Accommodations: While at the Games, athletes stay in the homes of local host families. Parents, family, friends and supporters are encouraged to attend and watch their children participate, but while at the Games the athletes are the responsibility of the Philadelphia delegation and coaching staff and contact with the athletes is limited.

JCC Maccabi Games is an athletic and cultural festival for Jewish teenagers between 13-16 years old. The Games involve athletic and social events.

Thanks for your interest in the Philadelphia JCC Maccabi Games 13-14 Boys Basketball Team.
