Athlete Expectations & Commitment

  • If an athlete wishes to compete in one of the team sports, but there are not enough to form an Omaha team, they can play on a mixed team, but will still represent Team Omaha.
  • Each team will set its own practice schedule and attempt to take into account each player’s availability. Athletes are expected to consider Maccabi competition to be a high priority and to attend as many practices as possible.
  • Players are expected to be on time for practices, suited up, and appropriately equipped.
  • Players that attend a Jewish summer camp or Israel program are still eligible as long as they can attend the Games®.
