21st Maccabiah U16 & U18 Soccer Tryouts
Dear Maccabi USA U16 & U18 Soccer Applicants,
Thank you for your interest in representing the United States at the 21st Maccabiah in Israel. The Games will take place July 3-26, 2022. Our training camp and Israel Connect programs will take place from July 3-11, and the Maccabiah Games from July 12-26.
In order to be considered for your team, you must have an application in with Maccabi USA, and you must attend one of the tryouts.
Your tryout registration fee is $180. This will cover your tryout shirts, facility rental, athletic trainers, and administrative needs. Your transportation to the tryout, housing, and meals are separate. Please plan to bring anything else you will need (extra soccer ball, water, snacks, etc.). Athletes will only need to attend one of the tryout locations for team consideration.
The Maccabi USA Medical Advisory Committee will provide guidelines aligned with the recommendations of the CDC, state and local health departments. We are committed to sharing honest and ongoing communication. As we get additional clarity on policies and procedures as the tryout gets closer, we will continue to communicate updated information to you.
Due to COVID19, there will be increased restrictions for tryouts. Athletes will also be required to complete medical forms through CAMP DOCS prior to tryouts. Forms will be due no later than 1 week to tryouts. Please also note that due to these strict COVID19 guidelines, day-of walkups will not be allowed to participate in tryouts.
