Tucson J to hold Maccabi recruitment events

The Tucson Jewish Community Center is recruiting young Jewish athletes, ages 13-16, for the 2016 JCC Maccabi Games to be held this summer in Columbus, Ohio.

The Tucson J hopes to register 20-25 teens by March 11, with practice starting at the end of March. The games will feature a variety of sports, including basketball, swimming and golf. On Sunday, Feb. 21 at 3:30 p.m., delegation head Oren Riback, the J’s assistant director of children and youth, will hold a final information session in the youth lounge.

On Saturday, March 5 from 6-9 p.m., a “meet the coaches” event will be held in the gym. Scrimmages and social games will take place after a brief Havdallah service. Assistance will be available for parents completing registration.

For more information, contact Riback at 299-3000, ext. 175 or oriback@tucsonjcc.org.
