Jewish athletes ages 12 thru 16 as of July 31, 2016 are eligible to play! Don’t miss this opportunity to compete against delegates from cities across the United States as well as other countries, including Australia, Canada, Israel and Mexico. Columbus will be hosting a total of 23 visiting delegations.

Compete in one of eight sports: baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, tennis, golf, swimming and table tennis or participate as a star reporter, the official news outlet of the JCC Maccabi Games, while sharing in a cultural exchange with teens experiencing Columbus for the first time.

Families of local athletes will need to provide accommodations for at least two athletes in their home.

The Games include a community service project called JCC Cares. This allows athletes to participate in a hands-on service project to give back to the community in a meaningful way.

Sign up today! The Games are open to all current JCC members and non-JCC members. Non-JCC members that register to participate receive a complimentary JCC membership valid through the end of July 2016!
