JCC Maccabi Games

It’s time to join the team! Calling all Jewish teens to participate in the experience of a lifetime!!

What is Maccabi?

JCC Maccabi Games

Each summer, thousands of Jewish teens gather for a fun-filled week of athletic, social, and cultural events at the JCC Maccabi Games and Artsfest.  Since 1982, over 100,000 teens have participated in what is deemed the largest annual Jewish teen event.

The Maccabi Games is an Olympics for Jewish teens, but the event serves a much larger purpose than just being an athletic competition, as it promotes community involvement, teamwork, and pride in being Jewish. Athletes compete in one of many potential sports including baseball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls lacrosse, ice hockey, volleyball, flag football, ultimate Frisbee, bowling, track and field, softball, dance, swimming, table tennis, and tennis.

In addition, there are social events and opportunities to help others during the week-long experience, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Participating in the JCC Maccabi Games and Artsfest is an opportunity to not only represent Tucson, but to meet teens from all over the country and world.
