Junior Carnival!

Posted: 29-Aug-2017 by Maccabi National

The 36th Maccabi Junior Carnival will be held in Melbourne, January 14-21, 2018 and excitement is building across the country. Information nights in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth have exceeded expectations with more than 200 youth aged 12-16 attending. Maccabi has launched a new format for the upcoming Junior Carnival. Running concurrently, Carnival will incorporate both Maccabi Carnival Colour Games and Carnival Competitive Sports.

Carnival Competitive Sports will see Jewish sporting youth from around Australia competing in basketball, soccer, netball and tennis. Teams will compete in a tournament style competition, striving to win the Carnival Cup in their sport.

Maccabi Colour Games takes Maccabi’s traditional sporting carnival and turns up the sport, fun and colour. The week-long program will see participants competing in activities ranging from traditional sports, to stand up paddle boarding, wacky swimming races, beach events, e-games and commando courses. The full program features 5 full days of sporting activities and night time social activities including a pool party, dress-up movie night, colour run and much more.

Carnival is the single largest gathering of Jewish youth in Australia and Maccabi is working hard to ensure kids remain engaged, are exposed to new activities and sports and given the opportunity to learn and grow, all while having the most incredible social experience. The highlight of Carnival will be the opportunity to meet and make new and lifelong friends from around the country.

The organising committee is also working with community groups to create a very special Community Day.

If you are looking for a competitive sporting event or an opportunity to be active and have fun, Maccabi Carnival 2018 is for you.

Without giving too much away, the Carnival program is exciting, fun and jam-packed full of activities to ensure that Junior Carnival is the most incredible experience.
