Daniel will be joining us for Session 3 to work as a Counselor and Assistant Coach!

Daniel is from San Francisco, California. He just graduated from high school and will be starting college at UC Santa Barbara’s Engineering School next fall.

Daniel loves playing sports, especially soccer, which he started when he was 5 and tennis, which he started at age 9. He played on his high school’s soccer and tennis teams all four years and also loves playing baseball, football and ping-pong with his friends on the weekends. On top of playing sports, Daniel is also a huge fan of the San Jose Earthquakes, FC Barcelona and the San Francisco Giants.

Daniel Bunimovitz - photoIn his sophomore year of high school, he began working as an assistant coach for his middle school’s third grade soccer team. He has also been a referee for both outdoor and indoor soccer, as well as a math tutor for 8th and 9th graders. Daniel loves seeing the kids he works with improve and is looking forward to sharing his love of sports with the campers.

Daniel is a hardworking student (when he isn’t busy playing or watching sports). He speaks English, Hebrew and Spanish and plans on majoring in Mechanical Engineering at UCSB. One of the things he attributes to his success in school are the values and skills he learned playing on sports teams, such as communication, collaboration and a hard work ethic.

He’s really excited to be working at JCC Maccabi Sports Camp this summer and can’t wait to meet all the campers and the other staff members.
