The Simon Family JCC Athletics Department is searching for Jewish teen athletes to travel as a group this summer to the JCC Maccabi Games in San Diego, California.

Tom Edwards, the Simon Family JCC’s athletics director, is organizing players for basketball (3×3 teams), tennis, soccer, swimming, and E-Sports.

Former Team JCC Virginia Beach athlete Matt Gross, now a college freshman, says, “The JCC Maccabi Games were an experience of a lifetime! Not only do you make memories, but lifelong friends and connections. This year I was visiting a friend at another college and ran into a buddy from Maccabi! Someone I met playing lacrosse in the California Games. I love having these national connections.”

Gross also traveled to the Detroit Games as a basketball player.

Interested athletes or parents should contact Tom Edwards for more information or to sign up at
