Updates on Tryouts and Events

It seems as though the million dollar question on every Jewish athlete’s mind is, ”When are tryouts for my sport?”. Well, there’s good news. Over the past couple weeks there have been plenty of tryout dates tentatively scheduled. I have listed these updates below and you can also find them on our website, http://www.maccabiusa.com/ under the Sports Explorer section:

Juniors Boy’s Baseball(born 1991-1994)
Los Angeles, CA- August 3rd, 2008
Miami, FL- August 10th, 2008

Men’s Wrestling(Open)
Beachwood, OH- April 5th, 2009, 10:00am, registration/weigh-in is April 4th, 2009

Remember that all these dates and places are tenative so nothing is set in stone. Also, not all sports have tryouts. In sports that are based on qualification times(i.e. Swimming, Triathlon, Half Marathon), the coaches and chairmen for those respective sports will decide who is accepted onto the team based on recorded times, etc.

Along with scheduling tryouts, we have also set times and places for several golf tournaments we are sponsoring. If you are interested in participating in any of the golf events at the locations listed below, please contact Sara Feinstein(sfeinstein@maccabiusa.com) and she will provide you with more information:

June 9th, 2008
Fenway Golf Club
Scarsdale, NY
Chair: Richard Myers

July 28th, 2008
Sunset Ridge Country Club
Northfield, IL
Chair: Mark Fishman

October 7th, 2008
Four Streams Country Club
Beallsville, MD
Chair: Brent Goldstein

For whatever sport you may be interested in, I continue to encourage you to get your applications in. We have received plenty of them this week which is great. Also, we continue to fill our chair and coaching positions. Everything is looking great as we get ready for our organizational meeting next weekend.

As always, you can contact me with any questions whether it be through the comments section, email, or phone.
