he Detroit Maccabi
Club is looking for a
few good young
athletes to represent it in
France.
The club is seeking boys
age 13-14 for a soccer team
to compete in the annual
European Youth Maccabi
Games scheduled July 11-18,
1991, in Marseilles.
If such a team is formed, it
will be the first Detroit Mac-
cabi team ever to be invited
to the European Games and
the only team from the
Western Hemisphere par-
ticipating.
A soccer team tryout has
been scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
Jan. 13 at the Maple-Drake
Jewish Community Center.
Candidates will be tested on
kicking, passing, scrimmag-
ing and general ball-
handling skills, according to
Alan Horowitz, Detroit Mac-
cabi sports coordinator.
The Detroit team also
would spend five days in
London as guests of the
British Maccabi Club, who
arranged the invitation for
the Detroit club. The Detroit
youngsters would stay with,
and play against, the Eng-
lish team and also would
tour London, Horowitz said.
The two teams then would
travel to Marseilles,
Horowitz added. The trip
would be July 4-20 at a cost
of about $1,500 per athlete.
Horowitz didn't know
whether any Detroit Mac-
cabi scholarships would be
available.
"This is the first time
we've been invited to send
any kind of team overseas,"
he said.
Jay Robinson, general
chairman of the Detroit
Club, was ecstatic. "This is
unbelievable," he said. "If
we don't get a team together,
it'll be criminal. I'm afraid
people won't understand
what a great trip this is."
Robinson said the Euro-
pean Games will have teams
from "every European coun-
try — teams from the Soviet
Union, England, France,
Germany, Sweden, Italy,
Greece — all Jewish kids
from all over Europe."
The invitation resulted
from Detroit's hosting of last
summer's JCC-North
American Maccabi Youth
Games, in which England
participated.
When Henry Minkoff and
Stuart Lustigman, the

British team's manager and
delegation head, asked
Robinson in August about
the likelihood of Detroit's
sending a team to the Euro-
pean Games next summer,
"I said we weren't entitled to
go, and they said 'Well, what
if we got you a special
invitation?' " recalled Robin-
son.
"Special invitation? Are
you kidding? We'd jump at
that," Robinson responded.
So Minkoff and Lustignian
got permission to invite
Detroit.
Parents or players seeking
additional information can
call Horowitz, 737-0639.



Dates, Costs Told
For Other Trips
Here are the approx-
imate dates and costs of
two other proposed trips
announced earlier for
Detroit Maccabi Club
athletes:
A 12-to-14-day trip to
England and Scotland for
a high school-age boys'
soccer team (up to 18-
year-olds) would be from
about the last week in
June through the first
week in July and cost
about $1,500 per player,
according to Alan
Horowitz, Detroit Mac-
cabi sports coordinator.
A proposed 7-to-10-day
East Coast bus trip for
Detroit girls' softball and
boys' basketball teams to
Washington, D.C., New
Jersey, Pittsburgh,
Cleveland and possibly
Toronto would cost about
$750 per player. They
could be scheduled
anytime during the
summer, except for the
Aug. 18-22 regional JCC-
Maccabi Games to be
played simultaneously in
Wayne, N.J., Cleveland
and Omaha.
In both trips, Detroit
teams would play against,
and be hosted by, their
Maccabi counterparts in
those cities, Horowitz
said.
A Detroit volleyball
team and the soccer team
might join the East Coast
trip, particularly if the
latter doesn't go to
England and Scotland.
Horowitz said a meeting
is being set up for parents
and athletes Jan. 13 to
discuss these trips.
