Open Athlete Report



“The greater the challenge, the more glory in overcoming it.”


The lead in to the 21st Maccabiah has been challenging, however the games are now well and truly in sight, and we are ready and prepared for an exciting 9 months in the lead up to the games.


The commitment and dedication our phenomenal Open’s Team management and coaches have provided us, leads me to believe these will be a hugely successful and rewarding games.


We have had an amazing response with some team’s nominations exceeding capacity three times over.


The Open’s Team may be the largest ever, with the return of a women’s hockey team after a significant hiatus, and new inclusion; men’s beach football, 3 x 3 men’s basketball, sport climbing and surfing.



The enthusiasm has been palpable and now that trials are well on their way, it is super exciting to see the teams being ratified.


Our first Open’s team was ratified this month, mazaltov to the Mac men on being the first official team of the Australian Maccabiah delegation.


We continue to work hard in the background and look forward to seeing you all at the trials.


We are here to answer any questions you may have and support you through the next 9 months.


Uniform try- ons will be exciting and are around the corner, until we meet then we wish you good luck for your trials and enjoy all our new found freedoms.


Stay safe and healthy


One Team One Dream
