Coaches needed for Canadian Maccabi soccer program


Canadian soccer will be well represented in the 2013 World Maccabiah Games — and the players will need top-tier coaching. The Games are set for July 16-30, 2013 at various venues throughout Israel, and they bring together the top Jewish athletes from around the world. And Maccabi Canada is making a big push to try and get the best coaches possible for the soccer program. “We want to bring the program to another level,” said Shane Spring, who is organizing the soccer teams for the Games. “My interest is to attract the very best coaches and athletes from across Canada to participate and represent Canada in the 2013 Maccabi Games.” In 2009, Maccabi Canada sent six soccer teams to the Games, from men’s and women’s senior teams to U18 boys. The U18 women won gold, while the women’s open side took bronze. And, while the athletes have to be of the Jewish faith, the coaches and support staff do not. Some Canadian soccer names you may recognize from the Maccabi Games alumni: Former Toronto FC keeper Tomer Chencinski, who now plays in Finland with VPS and just went on trial with Swedish side Orebro SK; and — another keeper — Nils Binstock, who earned a trial with TFC in January of 2010 after an impressive career at Iona College. In his final year with Iona, Binstock’s goals against average was a miniscule 0.66..Binstock has since disappeared off the soccer map, as he’s moved to Israel. Chencinski and teenage defender Oliver Spring — the CSL Reserve League defender of the year who is preparing for his third stint with Feyenoord’s youth wing — are penciled in for a Canadian squad that will go down to the Pan Am version of the games in Brazil this December. Also on the radar is Canadian striker Brad Rose, who plays at Yale; and Ilya Orlov and Alon Badat, both with the York University Lions. Oliver Spring, the Canadian teenage defender who is about to return to Feyenoord for another trial, is committed to represent Canada at the Games. Elite Canadian coaches who are interested in the chance working with some of Canada’s best young players are welcome to apply HERE or by following the instructions on the poster, reproduced below. Spring and his team will go through the applications and then pick the top candidates for the national team
