Maccabi Canada looking for coaches of any faith to lead its soccer teams By Steven Sandor Posted on January 27, 2016 Comments Off on Maccabi Canada looking for coaches of any faith to lead its soccer teams 0 560 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter The Maccabiah Games don’t take place until 2017, but the search is on for coaches looking to steer Canada’s soccer teams in the tournament. Maccabi Canada is looking to send the following age groups to the soccer tournaments; U16 boys, U18 boys, U18 girls, men’s open, women’s open and a men’s master. The Maccabi games bring together the top Israeli athletes and Jewish international competitors every four years. But, coaches do not have to have Israeli heritage or be Jewish. The Games, held in Israel, offer coaches the chance to work with athletes and also get the chance to visit many of the historic sites in Israel and to expand their cultural boundaries. Past coaches of Maccabi Canada soccer teams include Alan Koch, who currently shepherds the Vancouver Whitecaps’ affiliate in USL-PRO. The application process for coaches closes at the end of February. For more information on how to get involved in the soccer program, follow this link.
