Meet Yaniv Elezar from Israel! We are thrilled to have Yaniv join our staff team this year as an Assistant Basketball Coach and Boys Camp Counselor. Yaniv has been playing basketball for over a decade. When he was 12 years old, he had the opportunity to play for the Maccabi Games in Rishon Lezion. He says it was one of the greatest experiences of his life. And although it was a lot of work, including practicing nearly 10 times a week, he had a great time.
During Yaniv’s senior year, he took a course on coaching in school. Through that experience, he had the opportunity to coach a basketball team of 10 and 11 year old players. In 2013, Yaniv join the Israeli army and played a key role in mentoring and onboarding young soldiers.
Welcome to the team, Yaniv!
