Created to promote community service, sportsmanship, and build Jewish identity, the JCC Maccabi Games are a week-long Olympic-style event for young athletes aged 13-16. Held in different locations throughout the United States every summer, the games generate enthusiasm and excitement for everyone involved, from young athletes and volunteers to coaches and host families. The Games are co-sponsored by the Jewish Community Center Association of North America, Maccabi World Union, Maccabi Canada, and Maccabi USA/Sports for Israel. Today, over 3,000 teens participate in the JCC Maccabi Games® each summer, making it the largest organized sports program for Jewish teenagers in the world.
The Mid-Atlantic Junior Games offer a one-day sports experience for Jewish athletes ages 9-12, modeled after the JCC Maccabi Games. The Jr. Games draw participants throughout the east coast for a day of spirited competition in team and individual sports!
