Speaking about the selection, Boys U14 Football Manager, Liam Stein, said, “It is an incredible experience to represent Team Maccabi GB at a JCC Maccabi Games. Each host city does a fantastic job putting on a great games and I’m sure Fort Lauderdale will be no different. We have an extremely talented squad who have already begun preparations for August. The athletes can expect intense competition mixed with plenty of exciting events with their host families and other young, Jewish participants from around the world.

“The unique element of the JCC Maccabi Games is the kindness the hosts show in welcoming our athletes into their homes and ensure they have as much fun as possible during the trip. I know our Delegation will have an incredible time and do British Jewry proud.”

The tournament takes place between 6-17th August.
