The 2022 Maccabi Games are back and there are many opportunities available for teens of all ages.
By Skylar Haas
Team Nashville is knee-deep in recruiting for their 2022 JCC Maccabi Games delegation in San Diego. This summer join Jewish teens for an experience that teen athletes in local Jewish communities from around the world are itching to attend. After a two-year hiatus, the games are back, and Nashville is ready to go. A unique opportunity that the JCC Maccabi Games offers is for teens who come from smaller Jewish communities to participate in a mixed team. The mixed team experience is an exceptional one in that the teens arrive at the Maccabi games, meet their teammates, and some of them, their coach for the first time, and just play. It allows for teens to bond over their love for the game and create relationships with Jewish teens from across the country.
This year Nashville is excited to continue the legacy of ‘The 615 Boys’, our 16U Flag Football team. We are looking to build a team of five to eight young men for the games this summer and supersede our 2019 Silver Medal. There are also a ton of individual sports offered and we are currently seeking at least two individuals to represent Team Nashville in any of those.
Location: San Diego, CA
Dates: July 31st through August 5th
Eligibility: Jewish teens 13-16 years old as of July 31st, 2022
Team | Baseball, Basketball (5v5 and 3v3), Flag Football, Ice Hockey, Soccer, Volleyball

The JCC Maccabi Games offers something to Jewish teens beyond medals. It opens doors to new faces, coaches, mentors, and lifelong friends, all through the common love for the game and a little bit of friendly competition. There is nothing more powerful than teamwork. On and off the field, in or out of the water, teens walk away for the games better team players and better teammates and we’re already filling the roster for 2022 in San Diego. Will you be on it? Registration closes March 7th.
