As the International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated all over the world today (Wednesday) Maccabi also raises the spotlight on gender equality as we embrace our feminine side. On this IWD we use the opportunity to focus our attention on the Club’s Girls Academy, as the video below shows at first hand how the next generation is inspired by the project.
Maccabi’s girls academy consists of 3 different age group teams. The most senior one includes 15 girls between the age of U19’s to U15’s (2004-2008). A younger team has girls between the age U14’s to U11’s (2009-2011) while the third team has 20 girls between U10’s to U8’s.
Every team has 3 weekly training sessions in addition to one fitness session for the two older teams. Just like any other youth team at Maccabi Tel Aviv’s Academy, each team has a Head Coach, Goalkeepers Coach and a Fitness coach.
One of the teams was recently named as the Academy’s PIZZA PREGO Team of the Week as the girls enjoyed trays of pizza from the club’s official sponsor.
