Israeli Basketball Week in Pittsburgh

The Misgav Youth Team (ages 16 - 18); together with three senior coaches from Karmiel and Misgav will depart during Hanukah for a weeklong visit to Pittsburgh. The team will meet at the JCC for its own practice sessions during the morning hours.
During the afternoon Israeli players and coaches will be available to conduct a training camp for children from the community (grades 3 - 9) and during the evening play practice games between the Karmiel/Misgav team and their Pittsburgh counterparts. This will enable each team to study and absorb the various training methods and game tactics used by the various league frameworks. In addition, the Karmiel/Misgav team will be available for practice games against any one of the various high school teams in the area and conduct advanced training sessions concerning Israeli basketball in general, regional basketball in particular, its methods, drills, plays and ideology, etc.
Aside from basketball, the teams will participate in joint activities unrelated to the sport in order to connect with their contemporaries from the area.
Local community families that do not necessarily have a basketball connection will host the young people; it is our intention to create a connection to Israel and Israelis with as many families and individuals as possible. .
