The Maccabi Tel Aviv “Avi Cohen” Youth Academy held a special day for young players from across the country. The open trial day was held at the PenguinPickUp training facility at Kiryat Shalom under the direction of the Academy’s chief scout Ran Elias. Patrick van Leeuwen, the Club’s Performance Director goal with these special days is to be able to find additional quality players at various ages.

Open to those born between 2007-2013, the staff prepared training sessions appropriate for different age groups which were split into two (2007-2009 & 2010-2013) and had the chance to impress the coaches on hand. The sessions were held under the philosophy of the club.

Should a player impress the staff, the club will be in contact with them. This amazing day was a fantastic opportunity for youngsters from around the country to get a taste of the values of Maccabi Tel Aviv.
